Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bacliff

Some structures may require high-lifts or other equipment to perform a bat 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. This happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. While at your property, Bacliff bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We offer up to a 3-year warranty on our exclusions (depending on structure condition) if we bat-proof the structure. 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. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. 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 go out in groups and shifts, and return back and forth all night. 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. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems.

NEVER try to catch a bat with your bare hands! Unless you are 100% certain the bat in your home had no contact with anyone, bats found inside your home should be taken to your local health department for rabies testing. Bats may use caves or old mining shafts for roosts, but many of those areas are becoming scarce. The key to a proper bat removal project is to find all of these areas. Bats are adapting by using man-made structures for roosting and nursery colonies. In short, it requires a lot of meticulous sealing and wide area netting. There are even those that will recommend moth balls. Do bats carry rabies and transmit them to humans? Bats will sometimes appear in your home during the winter months. The attic and walls and other areas the bats have contaminated should be cleaned. In these cases you should treat the removal in much the same way as if they were in your attic. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe.

The methods used for bat removal have nothing in common with the methods normally used for animals such as raccoons, opossums, squirrels, groundhogs, and others. If there are just a few bats, and it appears that there is no colony present or if there is a solitary bat in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment. Now instead of an odor problem, you have a colony of stressed-out bats flying around in your house. They usually crawl down walls and wedge into gaps behind wood beams, fascia boards, etc. Quite the contrary, as less than 1% ever contract rabies, and it is highly unusual for a bat to contact a person, through a sick bat may have no fear of a human or other animals. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. But because they can enter via dozens of other non-primary, you want to seal off potential entry holes beforehand, so that excluded bats don't find an alternate way in. You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing. There are several ways to get rid of bats in an attic. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately.

Exact exclusion costs are impossible to quote without a thorough inspection of the structure. This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion. More bats = better chance of being noticed. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. The waste has a foul odor, but it can also grow fungal spores that people can breathe in, leading to the lung disease Histoplasmosis. Bats can get into your walls, roof or chimney. But they are fragile animals, and they can't claw or chew their way back in, so if you do your job right, you'll never have bats inside again. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. I've researched this for many years. One of the most common diseases you have to worry about with bats is histoplasmosis as well as rabies. Due to the extremely poor condition of some structures and the rate of deterioration, some homes or buildings may not qualify for any bat-proofing guarantee.
