Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Highlands

We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. 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. They only give birth to one baby and this usually takes place in late spring. While at your property, Highlands bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The smell associated with bats is due to the accumulation of guano and urine below their roosting areas. 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. The next thing you want to do is to make sure that you are wearing heavy protective clothing. 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.  But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs. 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. You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic.

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. The best chance of hearing them is at dusk, as they are lining up to fly out of the house.

In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. The process is complex, because bats can enter such tiny areas, about 3/8 inch. In addition, access can be hard. In some instances the primary entrance/exit holes are the only access points available, and basic repairs and an exclusion may be sufficient, while others require a week or more just to perform the complete bat-proofing process. Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas. Our warranty included with total bat-proofing would apply in the event that bats locate another entry hole and return into the attic or roost area. Why even attempt poisons, when a live exclusion is so much more effective? You can read more about how to kill bats with bat poison here.
