Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Barker

Etc. 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. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence. 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. The young are dependent on their mothers for some time. 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'd be amazed at the holes you see at night that escape you by day, and the bat behaviors you see that ensure 100% success. 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.  Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out? 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. You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway.

You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost. 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. Though in very few cases symptoms are seen immediately, in many instances it is not recognizable for even months. These cases usually result in death. It would actually be very nice, because then we could remove bats easily (and harmlessly, just like a real exclusion). If you encounter such a problem, it is highly recommended that you contact a pest control professional who is trained in bat removal. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. Some people prefer to place bat houses nearby but the likelihood of the displaced bats roosting there is limited. None of the bats are killed in the process. We will prepare and send (e-mail, fax, or mail) a price quote for the exclusion program, which will include a detailed summary of the entire process. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points.

The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area. They then feast on flying insects, primarily moths and beetles. Some people prefer to place bat houses nearby but the likelihood of the displaced bats roosting there is limited. What about the lights, sounds and sound emitting devices you can find on the market? There are many different types of electrical devices being sold as bat repellents and the truth to this is that they are generally ineffective as well. We sometimes inspect structures during the late fall or winter season, but it may only allow us to provide a rough estimate if poor weather conditions prevent us from climbing on the structure or using ladders. Bats aren’t like rodents. If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there. One of the most simple and common ways to exclude is to use a flexible, mesh netting. Brown or grey streaks can be left near soffits, the roof and chimneys and are prime indicators of a bat colony. Check the local bat species to determine when it is safe to exclude the colony. There are quite a few different species of bats in North America; however the ones that are known for colonizing are the species that most often cause problems.

You should instead try to open every possible exit for the bat and allow it a chance to escape on its own. When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. 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. They then fly back out to feed some more. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. 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. 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. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed. We have added 2 additional lifts to our equipment in late 2005. The other commonly found bat is the Little Brown Bat. This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding.
