Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Simonton

No colony should be excluded from return until the young are capable of flying. 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. Where you want to start is by looking for places where the bat can hang. 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. Their echolocation system enables them to locate a tiny insect flying in total darkness. 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. Many people seem to think that all bats have rabies. 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.  Thus, the colony size roughly doubles at birth, and when the baby bats start to fly, you notice twice as many bats. 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. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects.

Can I just use some sort of repellent product to get bats out of the attic? Like a powder or spray? What about a natural home remedy? Will a bright light or noises work?

Bats are often persecuted due to the fact that most people have no understanding of bat ecology and the important role they play in controlling night-flying insects. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. This leaves no way for them to easily get out and will end up causing these important little creatures to die in your attic. It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. Some insurance companies may cover bat exclusions, since they are not rodents. Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. Simple in concept, but very hard to get right! And it is crucial that it is done perfectly, or you'll have a big problem on your hands.
