Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in La Marque

Cover your skin with heavy clothing, wear protective goggles, and make sure that you wear a surgical mask over your nose and mouth. 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. This can be in the form of piles of guano (bat waste) building up on the floor. While at your property, La Marque bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. If there are just a few bats, and it appears that there is no colony present or if there is a solitary bat in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment. 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. The attic and walls and other areas the bats have contaminated should be cleaned. 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.  Read more about how to catch bats inside the house here. 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 truth, none of these repellents will help rid your attic of a bat colony.

It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air. What problems do bats cause when they live in a building? In addition to histoplasmosis bats can also carry rabies. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits. The process is complex, because bats can enter such tiny areas, about 3/8 inch. In most cases, the bats have left behind a strong odor as well. Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing. 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. They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. TYPE & TIME OF NOISE: Bats are nocturnal, but they are pretty quiet in small numbers, and most people don't notice any noise.

What if I have bats living under Spanish Barrel Tiles on my roof? This virus affects the immune system, mainly the nervous system very quickly. They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic. This may explain the sporadic incidents of bats in your home during the winter. In addition to histoplasmosis bats can also carry rabies. They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June. They then fly back out to feed some more. They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures. Most people do not tolerate that idea very well, and it becomes necessary to evict the bats and repair the structure as needed to prevent them from entering in the future. If the bat has been captured make sure to take it with you so the health department can discover if it is carrying rabies or not. It is a small push-around unit.

Performing an inspection requires every inch of the structure to be checked thoroughly, top to bottom. One of the most common diseases you have to worry about with bats is histoplasmosis as well as rabies. The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. Another change that will sometimes get bats moving inside a home or building during the winter is the arrival of an arctic cold blast. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. Untreated histoplasmosis can cause the lung infection to spread to organs like the liver and spleen. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home. 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. 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. Once it dries it can release toxic fungal spores into the air.
