There are significant health risks associated with removing bat guano, bird or animal dropping accumulations. While at your property, Missouri City bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. 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". 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. This happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. 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.  Exclusions can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the size of the structure, equipment required, materials for repairs, labor time for repairs and sealing, and mileage to site. 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. 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? How about those high-pitch sound machines?

This could even be areas such as between seat cushions, underneath entertainment centers, behind cabinets, or other areas that allow the bat to be virtually invisible. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. Taller structures are more likely to receive less maintenance due to a lack of access for repairs. If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there. Though they are not blind, their eyesight is very limited especially since they are creatures of the night. None of the bats are killed in the process. A person will suffer lung scarring and lasting damage as well as damage to internal organs and blood vessels.

IT IS A FATAL DISEASE. If the bat gets into your home during the nighttime then the best thing you can do is to shut off the room that you believe that it is in and wait till the day. 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. They are not aggressive.

They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. The summer observations allow us to be prepared for exclusions when the proper time comes. They sometimes find their way into basements for the winter hibernation period.
