Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Algoa

On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. 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. Housing bats on your property is an effective and natural means of insect control. While at your property, Algoa bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Often you will see them head toward a section of the house and even disappear. 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. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home. 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.  They do not want to be in your home, but are simply reacting to cool air currents on instinct. 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. If it is not the birthing season, you can do a bat removal project.

There are no vampire bats in the United States, although they can be found in South America and there are a few in Central America. We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. The female bats usually give birth to one baby bat each summer. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material. The cost of a standard BCI approved bat house ranges from $50 to $75. We can now safely remove bat droppings, bird droppings, and other animal waste accumulations from structures. The incubation period is highly variable in animals and people.

It is very common for bats to find their way into the living quarters of homes, usually during warmer summer temperatures when we use our air conditioning. From this point use the netting over the entry but don’t seal it up. It is a small push-around unit. Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. In the US, this really only means a few significant species, most commonly the Big Brown Bat and in larger numbers, the Little Brown Bat in the northern states, and in the southern states, you'll find Evening Bats, but most commonly the Brazilian, aka Mexican Free Tailed Bat. Performing an inspection can be time consuming, as we closely inspect the entire outer structure. If you exclude the mothers now you can end up with a bunch of babies dying in your attic. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. It has a wingspan up to 13 inches, and can live up to 19 years in the wild.

Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. In fact, some species eat up to half their body weight in insects daily and nursing mothers will eat even more than that. They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). 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. They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months.
