Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bailey’s Prairie

Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be. 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. Some social bats develop maternity colonies, or colonies of females gathered to have their young. While at your property, Bailey’s Prairie bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Like any other wild animal, bats should never be handled at any time, especially when found on the ground or in a home. 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. You can hear the slight peeping and see bats swooping around. 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. It is not unusual for a person to find they have bats in their attic, garage or other outbuildings.
