Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Piney Point Village

You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic. 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. There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. While at your property, Piney Point Village bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. This protects you from getting sick from anything from the creature. 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. That is the main principle. 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.  In most cases, the bats have left behind a strong odor as well. 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 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.

How Do You Get Bats Out of the Attic? - The best tool is education. They are more abundant in rainforests and tropical climates. They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually. 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. You can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make. Bat-proofing requires any holes or cracks over ¼ inch to be repaired, sealed, caulked, screened, or otherwise eliminated. Thus, the colony size roughly doubles at birth, and when the baby bats start to fly, you notice twice as many bats. Burning bats will flood your living room. If a bat is weak, sick looking and found during the day there is a good likelihood it could be carrying rabies. Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be.

Our bat removal specialists at Attic Solutions can help you take your home back from pests. You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost.

Certain bat species may hibernate in groups or "clusters", so a single bat appearing in your home during the winter could possibly indicate there are more bats hibernating in the structure. Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking. Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. Bats are extremely beneficial for insect control, as they offer an environmentally friendly method of insect control instead of using poisons and chemicals.

In addition to the above reasons one of the biggest reasons to not use poison is the fact it is inhumane. They are not. I've researched this for many years. Don't let the "big" name fool you, as a Big Brown only weighs about 1/2 ounce, but has a wingspan from 11 to 13 inches. They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr). A light mist of an enzyme-based microbial solvent will help keep the fungal spores from going airborne. If you hear this peeping and see bats it’s good to pay attention to where they go. This usually happens in the month of August, which is the high season for bat control work. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area. Our estimates may include the optional clean-out costs if requested.
