Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Sugar Land

They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. 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 key to a proper bat removal project is to find all of these areas. While at your property, Sugar Land bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Many of the southern bats migrate to different areas as climates change. 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 have the option this is a good time to call in a professional. 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.  The maternity colony will grow with each passing season and before you know it you could have a colony ranking in the hundreds. 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. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators.

It is true that they aren’t aggressive and won’t chew up your attic. The key to a proper bat removal project is to find all of these areas. If you find that you are still not locating it at that point, then what you need to do is to start searching around the floor to see if you find where droppings from the bat may have landed. At no time is 100% of the colony out at once. They end up flying around in your living room. Any gap of 1/2 to 1 inch is especially desirable. For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. It's very rare that one just flies in. If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. If a bat would accidentally land on you, your reaction would most likely be to brush it off.

On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. In most cases, the bats have left behind a strong odor as well. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. They are able to locate very small openings into homes and buildings, and it seems churches are one of their favorites. You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway. Histoplasmosis is a disease that is caused by breathing in a fungus (Histoplasma Capsulatum). Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you don’t have to worry about those pesky bats returning. Interesting fact: the bats in your attic are actually all females! They are called a maternity colony, and they are in your attic in order to have a safe place to give birth to and raise their young. Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking.

The females live about 13 years and the males about 18. Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be. Though a bat isn’t an aggressive animal or a top carrier of rabies they can transmit the disease. Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects.
