While at your property, Angleton bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We will also provide free detailed plans on how to build your own bat house, and information on placing the house for best results. Nuisance bats suspected of having rabies should always be left for professionals to remove.
HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. During the night they are wide-awake which puts you in greater danger. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely. What is the bat maternity season? Why can't I remove the bats in the summer? It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home.

Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease.
It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times.
First make sure to keep safety in mind.
Exclusions can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the size of the structure, equipment required, materials for repairs, labor time for repairs and sealing, and mileage to site.

Though a bat isn’t an aggressive animal or a top carrier of rabies they can transmit the disease.
Can I just use some sort of repellent product to get bats out of the attic? Like a powder or spray? What about a natural home remedy? Will a bright light or noises work? How about those high-pitch sound machines?
If you exclude the mothers now you can end up with a bunch of babies dying in your attic.
The smell associated with bats is due to the accumulation of guano and urine below their roosting areas.
Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in.
Hibernating bats may respond to a sudden warm-up in outside temperature, which may be a false signal that spring is near.
We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003.
There are times they may actually get trapped in the wall and if this happens you are going to have to do your best to locate where in the wall the bat is, create a hole and carefully remove the bat.
Unlike larger nuisance animals like raccoons, it can be difficult to know you have a colony of bats until you have many.
That will result in disaster.
Our inspection costs reflect time, travel, and preparation of the exclusion program details.
Instead bats are more closely related to primates and shrews.
They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually.
In very small amounts it's not a huge deal.
You can't do an exclusion while the young are flightless, because they'll all either die or crawl down the walls of your house and many will find a way inside your rooms.
On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins.
If you go into the attic often you may see signs of their residency more quickly.
You may also want to read my hiring advice to know what to look for.
Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure.
We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs.
Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats.
I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask.
After a while they get full and head back to the roost in order to rest.
Young are born in June, and can fly by August.
However, if you've got a typical maternity colony of bats in your home or building, it can be a big problem.
Your attic is much better.
Absolutely not! Aside from being illegal and immoral (even if you don't give a crap), every attempt I've seen has resulted in disaster for the property owner.
They are about 4.
