Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Coady

Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. 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. This classification is due to the fact it replicates in the nerve tissues and then infects the brain. While at your property, Coady bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. 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. 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. Perhaps for the next few seasons. 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.  Most people will panic when they discover bats are living in their home. 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. Getting rid of bats in your attic can be tricky and time consuming but it can be done.

Exact exclusion costs are impossible to quote without a thorough inspection of the structure. Exclusions are usually performed in late summer and early fall. The first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure. What about the lights, sounds and sound emitting devices you can find on the market? There are many different types of electrical devices being sold as bat repellents and the truth to this is that they are generally ineffective as well. I do highly recommend that you hire a professional with experience to solve your bat problem.

The exact species of bat is very important in performing the exclusion properly, because of different sizes, behaviors, and most of all birthing seasons. Bats are very sensitive to air currents, and the cool air which enters an attic after sunset is what triggers the bats to exit the structure and feed each night. Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs.

Each bat can poop 20 pellets per day, and if you multiply that number times hundreds of bats over a couple of years, you get an attic full of bat guano! It smells bad, it corrodes wood and drywall, and it can grow mold. After the bats are removed, it is best to clean up any guano or urine to prevent spread of disease. What if a bat has gotten into the living quarters of my house, like bedroom or living room? We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings.

  • Can a baby bat have rabies?

One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. After a while large piles of droppings form. Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. As an attic cools down, cool outside air is drawn into any cracks or holes, and the bats follow the air currents to the exit holes. In addition to histoplasmosis bats can also carry rabies. You can waste your money on any of a wide range of marketed devices or you can spend your time excluding the bats from your house and insuring they don’t reenter. If this doesn’t work, or if the bat seems injured, sleepy or sick you will need to be more active in removal. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. This makes it a little easier for you to search for if the number of places in the room that the bat is in leaves only a few options. Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic! If the disease is left untreated it can get far worse.
