Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bridgeland

If you encounter such a problem, it is highly recommended that you contact a pest control professional who is trained in bat removal. 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. Many bats use echolocation to travel and hunt. 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 pup or kit (name for a baby bat) remains unable to fly till mid to late august. 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. They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic. 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.  Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. 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. We have added 2 additional lifts to our equipment in late 2005.

Though they are not blind, their eyesight is very limited especially since they are creatures of the night. EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND: Although physical sightings of them entering and exiting the building are the best identifier, bats clearly make themselves known with the odor of their droppings, or guano.
