How Do You Get Bats Out of the Attic? - The best tool is education. Trapping and removal of a bat in Texas can be tricky and should never be attempted if the bat was found in a room where people were sleeping. We observe the structure as the bats exit for their nightly feeding. While at your property, Brookside Village bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. If you are careful everything will be fine. 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. Good question, but no. 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.  If anyone in the home was unknowingly bitten or scratched, by the time rabies symptoms appear it is too late for help. 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. Check the local bat species to determine when it is safe to exclude the colony.
