Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Cinco Ranch

How Do Bats Get In? 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 sound is similar to a cricket or katydid noise. While at your property, Cinco Ranch bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. 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. Inspection fees are due at the time of the site inspection. 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.  Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly. 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. These can include large populations of disease carrying mosquitoes, beetles, gnats, moths and flies.

Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points. If the bats are going to fly right back to their established roost site area, why not just evict them from the structure and save them the hassle of flying back. There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out? We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings. There are a couple factors that may cause these winter appearances in a home. They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually. Also check for air currents which may disclose other access points. If it is not the birthing season, you can do a bat removal project. Thus, the colony size roughly doubles at birth, and when the baby bats start to fly, you notice twice as many bats. They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months.

But for some reason, some of the strains in bats are transferable to people, and thus most cases of rabies in the United States are due to bats. It's very rare that one just flies in. What problems do bats cause when they live in a building? 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. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure. The virus usually attaches itself to the nervous system and works its way along to the brain. Like any other wild animal, bats should never be handled at any time, especially when found on the ground or in a home. Also check for air currents which may disclose other access points. Every state has different protocol regarding bats found in homes, so before releasing them outside call your local health department or animal control for information. But the numbers are very low.

But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. They sleep in roosts during the daytime, and emerge at dusk. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. If anyone in the home was unknowingly bitten or scratched, by the time rabies symptoms appear it is too late for help. We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. Though a bat isn’t an aggressive animal or a top carrier of rabies they can transmit the disease. Or, you an just watch the house at dusk and see where they are coming out. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. Our inspection costs reflect time, travel, and preparation of the exclusion program details.
