Barker Texas Bat Extraction From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Barker
It's hard to get bats to live in a bat house. 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. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. While at your property, Barker bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. What problems do bats cause when they live in a building? 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. This may explain the sporadic incidents of bats in your home during the winter. 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. If the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures. 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. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out.

How Do You Get Bats Out of the Attic? - The best tool is education.
A quick tip: If a company claiming to do bat work shows up for an inspection without a ladder, be cautious.
Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease.
These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July.
It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air.
First of all, DO NOT START A FIRE.
They have tiny little teeth, but are still able to inflict a bite to human skin.
Generally bats are going to enter a home near the roof or attic.
You absolutely do not want to remove the bats during the maternity season, when there are young, flightless bats in the attic.
Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points.
This will help you know how they are getting in and you can use this knowledge when it comes time to exclude them.
Once they have slipped out of the netting they won’t be able to reenter.
The exclusion netting or funnels must be set perfectly to allow bats to fly out naturally at night, but then not be able to fly back in.
What if I have bats in my chimney?
They hibernate in the winter.
The Mexican Free-Tail Bat Tadarida brasiliensis is common in the south.
As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in.
They then fly back out to feed some more.
Thus, the colony size roughly doubles at birth, and when the baby bats start to fly, you notice twice as many bats.
They consume a tremendous number of night flying insects every night during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home.
Exclusions are usually performed in late summer and early fall.
Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion.
Remember, it's not like I prefer to be working in the middle of the night! It's just that it helps get the job done perfectly, and perfection is required.
Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in.
Some bats will come out of hibernation a couple times during the winter to rehydrate, as they may sometimes be seen flying outdoors in December through February.
Under no circumstances should you consider fumigating or poisoning to remove bats from your home.
If it is not the birthing season, you can do a bat removal project.
