Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Dickinson
Read about the bat exclusion process. 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. Like any other wild animal, bats should never be handled at any time, especially when found on the ground or in a home. While at your property, Dickinson bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. People tend to be terrified of them but it’s important to note they are not aggressive and will not choose to attack a person. 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. 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. 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. Not only is this cruel it is illegal almost everywhere as bats are protected. 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. Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them.
