Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in La Porte

The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. 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. Your attic is much better. While at your property, La Porte bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. 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. On the right is a photo inside an attic with a large bat infestation. 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.  Their echolocation system enables them to locate a tiny insect flying in total darkness. 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. What if I have bats in my chimney?

People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2" crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. If on an eave gap, a funnel is correct. 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. Can I just use some sort of repellent product to get bats out of the attic? Like a powder or spray? What about a natural home remedy? Will a bright light or noises work? How about those high-pitch sound machines? In the US, this really only means a few significant species, most commonly the Big Brown Bat and in larger numbers, the Little Brown Bat in the northern states, and in the southern states, you'll find Evening Bats, but most commonly the Brazilian, aka Mexican Free Tailed Bat. If you hear this peeping and see bats it’s good to pay attention to where they go. There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. No colony should be excluded from return until the young are capable of flying.

They usually roost in tight, hot areas in the structure. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. The cost for bat-proofing varies greatly depending on the combination of the previous factors. Temperatures above 45 degrees are suitable, and it is common for Big Browns to hibernate in homes and buildings. Not all at once, and they make several trips in and out per night. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. If a bat would accidentally land on you, your reaction would most likely be to brush it off. Restricting access of the females to the young will prevent feeding of the young and they will die. I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. 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. Most people will panic when they discover bats are living in their home.

This unit is great for working on long outside walls or other projects such as installing bird netting in loading docks, parking garages, or other canopy-type structures. Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. There are a couple factors that may cause these winter appearances in a home. And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team. Contrary to most bat research, Little Browns will also hibernate in structures. Some people prefer to place bat houses nearby but the likelihood of the displaced bats roosting there is limited. This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion. So how do you find a bat that is hiding in your home? When they hibernate they seek a cave that doesn’t dip below forty degrees Fahrenheit and in southern, warm climates they may not hibernate at all. It is absolutely critical this isn’t done during between May and the end of August.
