These bats are small, with a wingspan of 8 inches, and a weight of less than half an ounce. 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. The methods for removal are different. While at your property, McBeth bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Many bat problems happen when the young start to crawl around and fly, and sometimes the inexperienced young crawl down into the house. 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. Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it. 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.  When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points. 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. If you exclude the mothers now you can end up with a bunch of babies dying in your attic.

Until an exclusion can be performed, the problem of bats entering the living quarters can be solved or minimized by sealing all holes and cracks leading from the attic into your living areas. They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months. When they hibernate they seek a cave that doesn’t dip below forty degrees Fahrenheit and in southern, warm climates they may not hibernate at all. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies. They gather to mate before hibernating and the females store the sperm inside of their body until after hibernation. Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material. If the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s).
