Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Cloverleaf

In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. 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. We also have a driveable scissors lift with a 24-foot deck height. While at your property, Cloverleaf bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The bats are usually excluded through one-way exclusion devices. 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. Inspection fees are due at the time of the site inspection. 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.  All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. 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. Another popular mistake is sealing up the entrance where the bats are getting in.

Many bats use echolocation to travel and hunt. This is not true. A bat house will NOT lure the bats out. However, it is important to note that many states have laws or regulations that address bat control and which provide specific requirements and protections for these animals. They sleep in roosts during the daytime, and emerge at dusk. The only good way to get rid of bats in your attic is to perform exclusion. Generally bats are going to enter a home near the roof or attic. The exclusion netting or funnels must be set perfectly to allow bats to fly out naturally at night, but then not be able to fly back in. If a bat is weak, sick looking and found during the day there is a good likelihood it could be carrying rabies. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. The female bats usually give birth to one baby bat each summer.

BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states. 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. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion! A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. At this time one egg is fertilized and then the female joins a maternity group. Bat houses are not a solution for a bat problem in a structure. A bite from a bat can be so small that a child might not realize it’s what happened. It would actually be very nice, because then we could remove bats easily (and harmlessly, just like a real exclusion). You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost. Understanding basic bat behavior helps us realize what causes them to enter the living quarters of our homes.

You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic. First off, I have to say that if you know what you are doing, you can solve your bat problem permanently. It is possible to perform exclusions in the spring, but spring exclusions must be completed by the middle of May to eliminate the possibility of stranding young bats in the structure. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). It is important to avoid using any home remedies to control bats, including those which involve mixing chemicals. 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. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. What species of bats typically live in attics? Holes along TV cables, water pipes, and cracks in drywall or gaps in ceiling tiles are all possible entrance points. If you decide to purchase a bat house, we offer to install it at no cost. Bats are often persecuted due to the fact that most people have no understanding of bat ecology and the important role they play in controlling night-flying insects.
