Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Otey

One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. 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. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people. While at your property, Otey bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies. 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. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal. 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.  It is great for installing chimney caps on 2 or 3 story homes. 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. Updated 2018.

Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. Many people think that they should trap the bats and get rid of them this way however this is not the best way to get rid of bats. They hibernate in the winter. Some bats will come out of hibernation a couple times during the winter to rehydrate, as they may sometimes be seen flying outdoors in December through February. It might be several different areas of the home. The bats most commonly found using homes for roosts are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. Histoplasmosis is a disease that is caused by breathing in a fungus (Histoplasma Capsulatum). Hibernating bats may respond to a sudden warm-up in outside temperature, which may be a false signal that spring is near. These bats will form huge colonies, up to several million members in some cases. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season.

Often you will see them head toward a section of the house and even disappear. Bats are very sensitive to air currents, and the cool air which enters an attic after sunset is what triggers the bats to exit the structure and feed each night. You can read more about bat repellent here. First they head for water and get a drink, skimming the surface on the wing. If a bat is found in your home and you are not able to contact a wildlife control operator, always wear thick leather gloves and use a net, towel, plastic container, or other method for capturing. At no time is 100% of the colony out at once. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. Always use personal protection when cleaning up guano or urine. They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June. Both Little Browns and Big Browns often emit a chattering sound as they get ready to exit their roosting areas at sunset to begin feeding. Because of my experience, and knowing what it takes to do it right, and the consequences of failure, I highly recommend hiring a professional who has a lot of experience.

One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. The next thing you want to do is to make sure that you are wearing heavy protective clothing. I also compare it to the squeaking sound made by quickly rubbing pieces of styrofoam together. First of all, DO NOT START A FIRE. These stains are left by the oil on their skin and/or urine. Some social bats develop maternity colonies, or colonies of females gathered to have their young. These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. A bite from a bat can be so small that a child might not realize it’s what happened.
