Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bridgeland

There is only one way to do it right: with a live exclusion. 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. The males roost alone in solitary areas, such as trees. 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. Untreated histoplasmosis can cause the lung infection to spread to organs like the liver and spleen. 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 reach maturity at about eight months when they can start mating and raising their own young. 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.  This can involve vacuuming of droppings, insulation replacement, and fogging the attic with enzyme cleaner. 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. As a word of precaution before moving any further, ensure that you never touch the bat directly.

Cleanup: The bats have left droppings in your attic or walls, perhaps by the million. Allowing bats to continue taking up residence in your home can lead to greater worries, including health problems and serious damage to your home. In these cases you should treat the removal in much the same way as if they were in your attic. Often when they enter or exit a home they will leave droppings or urine. As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in. How Do Bats Get In? We have added 2 additional lifts to our equipment in late 2005. 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. We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings. This usually happens in the month of August, which is the high season for bat control work. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits.

BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states. In a nutshell, you have to find out how they are flying in and out, install a special one-way device (there are several different types, for different scenarios) over the exit area, and let them fly out, but not fly back in. You might think this is silly or counter-intuitive, but again, I've done hundreds of bat jobs, and I've learned that the work is more effective this way. IT IS A FATAL DISEASE. They fly out at dusk, and fly back at dawn. In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you don’t have to worry about those pesky bats returning. The other commonly found bat is the Little Brown Bat. Inspection fees are due at the time of the site inspection. One of the easiest ways to tell if you have bats is hearing their scraping, rustling or squeaking. Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing. Our estimates may include the optional clean-out costs if requested.
