Simonton Texas Attic Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Simonton
The bats most commonly found using homes for roosts are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. 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. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. While at your property, Simonton bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We can then perform an observation after sunset to locate the access holes while we are at the site. 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. If you go into the attic often you may see signs of their residency more quickly. 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. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. 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. In addition to being important for the environment, bats only have one baby a year and it takes several months before this pup can fly about and be fully mobile.

First of all, it's probably there because it was part of a colony living in your attic or walls, and it accidentally crawled into the living area.

This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted.
Certain bat species may hibernate in groups or "clusters", so a single bat appearing in your home during the winter could possibly indicate there are more bats hibernating in the structure.
During these months the bats in your attic are either delivering their baby or taking care of the flightless pup.
Thus, the colony size roughly doubles at birth, and when the baby bats start to fly, you notice twice as many bats.
They are more abundant in rainforests and tropical climates.
Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected.
Studies have shown bats have returned from distances of up to 150 miles, so trapping and "moving" bats only creates a false sense of security for homeowners who see the bats "caught and hauled away".

This makes them look much bigger, especially if one is flying around inside your home.
Quite the contrary, as less than 1% ever contract rabies, and it is highly unusual for a bat to contact a person, through a sick bat may have no fear of a human or other animals.
You must do a 100% effective sealup job, with no mess-ups, and the exclusion devices must be the correct kind.
We also have a driveable scissors lift with a 24-foot deck height.
People who fail to research the subject will usually seal the holes during the day when the bats are roosting inside.
If you find that the bat is not hanging from anyplace, then your next option is to search for areas in the home where the bat could crawl into something.
These are usually one-day "awakenings" to get a drink.
