Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Aldine

But the attic of a home will do quite nicely. 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 usually roost in tight, hot areas in the structure. While at your property, Aldine bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. I can help you hire the right company, and how to ask the right questions on the phone and in person before you commit to hire someone. 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 go out in groups and shifts, and return back and forth all night. 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.  Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected. 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. None of these animals are actually blind, but they do use echolocation in order to aid in navigation on the wing.

Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. Cover your skin with heavy clothing, wear protective goggles, and make sure that you wear a surgical mask over your nose and mouth. I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). A variety of materials work well, from plastic or metal screening, to caulk, to high density polyurethane, depending on the situation. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. 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. This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding. We inspect the rooftop and check the lower rooflines, along with all dormers, window frames, and other potential bat entry points. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. 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.

As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. If Bats Are So Good For The Environment Why Not Leave Them There? Bats can get into your walls, roof or chimney. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. This leaves no way for them to easily get out and will end up causing these important little creatures to die in your attic. The presence of a bat in your home during the winter could be an indication you have a colony of bats living in your home. Whatever the issue, Attic Solutions can fix the damage. There is a fairly narrow "window" for exclusions, which makes it impossible to perform all sealing, repairs, and exclusion work in that limited time frame. There are several different approaches to remedying a bat infestation in an attic.

If across a large fascia board, polynet is correct. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. Read about bat prevention here. A bat house will NOT lure the bats out. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. None of the bats are killed in the process. The observation night can be at any time during the spring, summer, or fall. In these cases you should treat the removal in much the same way as if they were in your attic. During the night they are wide-awake which puts you in greater danger. There is a fairly narrow "window" for exclusions, which makes it impossible to perform all sealing, repairs, and exclusion work in that limited time frame. Some insurance companies may cover bat exclusions, since they are not rodents.
