Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Caplen

Most homeowners policies will not cover any rodent damage or removal, but since bats are not rodents contacting your agent prior to an exclusion is suggested. 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 the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures. While at your property, Caplen bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. It has a wingspan up to 13 inches, and can live up to 19 years in the wild. 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. It is the absolute worst thing you can do, but unfortunately the most common step that is taken. 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.  There is a fairly narrow "window" for exclusions, which makes it impossible to perform all sealing, repairs, and exclusion work in that limited time frame. 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. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed.

They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. Once you have properly attired yourself so that your skin is protected, now your search can begin. Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion. They are all insectivorous, catching insects on the wing. Bats are very important for the environment because they eat a lot of insects. During the spring, summer, and early fall we often schedule inspections in the afternoon or evening. Though less than 1% of bats carry the rabies virus and transmit it, it is difficult to say if a colony of bats that is residing in the house has it or not. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. The first thing for you to do is to relax a moment. It allows access to tall inside peaks (such as churches) as it will fit through standard doorways.

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. No colony should be excluded from return until the young are capable of flying. This usually happens in the month of August, which is the high season for bat control work. They then fly back out to feed some more. It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. Depending on the architecture, this may be exclusion netting, screening, funnels, or cones. They end up flying around in your living room. In central Illinois, young bats are present in nursery colonies from early May through early August. When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. The observation night can be at any time during the spring, summer, or fall. These bats are small, with a wingspan of 8 inches, and a weight of less than half an ounce.

Burning bats will flood your living room. The smell associated with bats is due to the accumulation of guano and urine below their roosting areas. This is a process that is not only filthy, it can be downright dangerous. You can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so. Many bat problems happen when the young start to crawl around and fly, and sometimes the inexperienced young crawl down into the house. After the bats have left, the holes can be sealed. Releasing them usually sends them right back to your home and trapping is difficult and dangerous for the person and the bat. Good question, but no. 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. Though we don’t often see bats, different species inhabit every continent in America except for Antarctica because they are an animal that needs warmth. The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc.
