Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bayou Vista

Simple in concept, but very hard to get right! And it is crucial that it is done perfectly, or you'll have a big problem on your hands. 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. Their wingspan is from 8. While at your property, Bayou Vista bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The next time you see a bat pass close by, you should be thankful. 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 a bat is weak, sick looking and found during the day there is a good likelihood it could be carrying rabies. 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.  As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it. 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. This leaves no way for them to easily get out and will end up causing these important little creatures to die in your attic.

That is the main principle. During the night they are wide-awake which puts you in greater danger. This means that during the daylight hours it will do what it can to avoid any place in your home where the light is shining. Working in the wildlife control business has allowed me to see this first hand. They then fly back out to feed some more. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. These stains are left by the oil on their skin and/or urine. Bat excrement can be harmful to your health. They sometimes find their way into basements for the winter hibernation period. In a nutshell, you have to find out how they are flying in and out, install a special one-way device (there are several different types, for different scenarios) over the exit area, and let them fly out, but not fly back in. Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure.

This can be in the form of piles of guano (bat waste) building up on the floor. If a bat is found in your home and you are not able to contact a wildlife control operator, always wear thick leather gloves and use a net, towel, plastic container, or other method for capturing. Bats usually begin leaving the structures about 15 minutes after sunset. They will however come back year after year to roost and raise their young. The problems associated with a large number of dead animals in a structure can be serious, so waiting until the young bats can fly is the sensible method. First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. At this time one egg is fertilized and then the female joins a maternity group. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. After 1 or 2 weeks (or sometimes late fall), the devices are removed and the access holes are repaired and sealed. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. And it's illegal to kill them.

They are generally harmless animals, they don't chew on wires like rodents do, but the main problem they cause is that they poop and pee a lot. TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. Bats can get into your walls, roof or chimney. The summer observations allow us to be prepared for exclusions when the proper time comes. Not all at once, and they make several trips in and out per night. The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. It is totally optional, but we often suggest installing a bat house near the site where they are currently roosting. You're still reading this?
