Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Chocolate Bayou

If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there. 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. Bats are protected by Illinois state wildlife code, and no chemicals or poisons can be used. While at your property, Chocolate Bayou bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The cost of a standard BCI approved bat house ranges from $50 to $75. 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. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. 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.  As an attic cools down, cool outside air is drawn into any cracks or holes, and the bats follow the air currents to the exit holes. 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. It is the absolute worst thing you can do, but unfortunately the most common step that is taken.

Experience is very important when it comes to bat jobs. Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. Do bats carry rabies and transmit them to humans? EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND: Although physical sightings of them entering and exiting the building are the best identifier, bats clearly make themselves known with the odor of their droppings, or guano. I myself trained for two years with a bat removal expert before I started my own bat removal jobs, and even then, I had a lot to learn. It is possible to perform exclusions in the spring, but spring exclusions must be completed by the middle of May to eliminate the possibility of stranding young bats in the structure. Untreated histoplasmosis can cause the lung infection to spread to organs like the liver and spleen. Unfortunately, no repellent of any kind has been shown to work in the slightest. Wear a pair of thick, leather gloves. And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem. This is why you need to make your search in places where it could be in the dark as the sun shines into your living room, bedroom, or attic.

Now instead of an odor problem, you have a colony of stressed-out bats flying around in your house. The warranty does not cover maintenance oversights such as broken windows or storm damage, and does not apply if other animals chew holes into the structure that bats discover. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion! The first thing for you to do is to relax a moment. How Do Bats Get In? Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. In the US, this really only means a few significant species, most commonly the Big Brown Bat and in larger numbers, the Little Brown Bat in the northern states, and in the southern states, you'll find Evening Bats, but most commonly the Brazilian, aka Mexican Free Tailed Bat. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. In actuality, the bats are diving to snatch up bugs. People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2" crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. The bulk of the droppings can be shoveled out into plastic garbage bags, then loose droppings can be vacuumed up with an industrial vacuum with filter.

It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits. The bats must be removed from the attic, and they are protected as colonies, so they must not be killed.
