Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bridgeland

I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask. 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. Here are tips about bats in the attic. While at your property, Bridgeland bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The Little Browns only weigh about 3 to 4/10ths of an ounce, and are only 3 to 3. 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. 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. 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.  These can include large populations of disease carrying mosquitoes, beetles, gnats, moths and flies. 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. 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?

During these months the bats in your attic are either delivering their baby or taking care of the flightless pup.

Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence.

Wear a pair of thick, leather gloves. However, if you've got a typical maternity colony of bats in your home or building, it can be a big problem. They only give birth to one baby and this usually takes place in late spring. Most people do not tolerate that idea very well, and it becomes necessary to evict the bats and repair the structure as needed to prevent them from entering in the future.

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. This is the final step in the exclusion process. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits.
