Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Hitchcock
Bats are adapting by using man-made structures for roosting and nursery colonies. 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. During the spring, summer, and early fall we often schedule inspections in the afternoon or evening. While at your property, Hitchcock bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003. 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 prevents them from finding an alternate access point into the structure. 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. Cover the bat with a thick towel by using a netting motion. 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. Until an exclusion can be performed, the problem of bats entering the living quarters can be solved or minimized by sealing all holes and cracks leading from the attic into your living areas.
Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes.

These are usually one-day "awakenings" to get a drink.
You can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so.
The key to a proper bat removal project is to find all of these areas.
In these cases you should treat the removal in much the same way as if they were in your attic.
Due to the extremely poor condition of some structures and the rate of deterioration, some homes or buildings may not qualify for any bat-proofing guarantee.
Once you have all the bats safely out of your attic you can seal off this last point of entry permanently and start the clean-up work.
They are simply opportunists.
Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time.
What if a bat has gotten into the living quarters of my house, like bedroom or living room?
All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes.
Releasing them usually sends them right back to your home and trapping is difficult and dangerous for the person and the bat.
The first night after a homeowner closes all access holes becomes quite a memorable experience, as the bats usually find their way into the living quarters as they desperately seek a way out of the structure.
Read about the bat exclusion process.
You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost.
But because they can enter via dozens of other non-primary, you want to seal off potential entry holes beforehand, so that excluded bats don't find an alternate way in.
One of the easiest ways to tell if you have bats is hearing their scraping, rustling or squeaking.
If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there.
Of course! Seal every gap, crack, and hole in your house.
You can't do an exclusion while the young are flightless, because they'll all either die or crawl down the walls of your house and many will find a way inside your rooms.
Restricting access of the females to the young will prevent feeding of the young and they will die.
The female bats usually give birth to one baby bat each summer.
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.
They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements.
That is the main principle.
How could anyone think they would run into a person? When people are outdoors at night, insects are attracted to us by heat and smell.
Histoplasmosis is a disease that is caused by breathing in a fungus (Histoplasma Capsulatum).
Some bats will come out of hibernation a couple times during the winter to rehydrate, as they may sometimes be seen flying outdoors in December through February.
EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND: Although physical sightings of them entering and exiting the building are the best identifier, bats clearly make themselves known with the odor of their droppings, or guano.
They will however come back year after year to roost and raise their young.
It may be wise to arrange for an inspection in the spring.
Taller structures are more likely to receive less maintenance due to a lack of access for repairs.
