A Ton and a Half of Bat Poop

Postby sox 06 » Fri May 04, 2007 1:51 pm

Literally 8-o :-P
An upstate New York couple didn't think a few bats in the attic were much of a problem when they were buying a house last summer.

Months later, they found out how wrong they were when they discovered more than a ton and a half of bat droppings up there.

Nick LaBoda and Jenna Caputo say a home inspector informed them about the bats. They called an exterminator, who told them to wait a while before removing the bats because the babies were too young to fly.

Then they forgot about the bats until they smelled a foul odor in January. When they checked the attic, they found dead bats and piles of guano.

An exterminator says hundreds of bats had been living in the attic, leaving behind 3,500 pounds of droppings.

It cost $25,000 to clean up the mess, and the couple's insurance company wouldn't cover it. They're fighting it out in court.

wow, depending on how long they waited the insurance company might have a case... that's a lot of crap.

They should have found a fertilizer company to come clean it up for them. Bat guano makes great fertilizer, and the company probably would have only charged a small fee to clean it up if you give them the poo.

I have heard that you can sell the stuff for a decent amount of money as well. ;-D

Damn, that's gotta be a horrid sight. Imagine heading up to your attic to find dead rodents and crap everywhere.
