Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bolivar Peninsula

There are times they may actually get trapped in the wall and if this happens you are going to have to do your best to locate where in the wall the bat is, create a hole and carefully remove the bat. 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. If they are not able to find their way into your living quarters, they die in the attic. While at your property, Bolivar Peninsula bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. 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. 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. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. 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.  We provide a detailed warranty info sheet for all exclusion programs. 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. We also inspect the attic or other possible internal roost areas if possible.

Attach it to create a funnel, which will guide the bats out. So how do you find a bat that is hiding in your home? The holes and gaps are usually tiny, about a half-inch (yes, a half-inch), and very easy to miss. This service requires specialized equipment, such as a HEPA-vac, full-face respirators, and disposable protective clothing. Releasing them usually sends them right back to your home and trapping is difficult and dangerous for the person and the bat. You can then bring it outside and watch it flutter away. They do not want to be in your home, but are simply reacting to cool air currents on instinct. They reach maturity at about eight months when they can start mating and raising their own young. The other commonly found bat is the Little Brown Bat. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. If the bat gets into your home during the nighttime then the best thing you can do is to shut off the room that you believe that it is in and wait till the day.

How To Clean Up The Guano? Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease. If the bat has been captured make sure to take it with you so the health department can discover if it is carrying rabies or not. This makes it a little easier for you to search for if the number of places in the room that the bat is in leaves only a few options. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. If a bat would accidentally land on you, your reaction would most likely be to brush it off. METHOD OF CONTROL: Mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights. They are able to locate very small openings into homes and buildings, and it seems churches are one of their favorites. In addition, an adult may not consider the small animal a danger and attempt to remove it by hand. In a nutshell, you have to find out how they are flying in and out, install a special one-way device (there are several different types, for different scenarios) over the exit area, and let them fly out, but not fly back in.

  • How dangerous are bats?

First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. The spores for this fungus can be found in drying and dried bat dung (guano). The presence of a bat in your home during the winter could be an indication you have a colony of bats living in your home. 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. Interesting fact: the bats in your attic are actually all females! They are called a maternity colony, and they are in your attic in order to have a safe place to give birth to and raise their young. After a while they get full and head back to the roost in order to rest. If you have any special questions, feel free to email me. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. The observation night can be at any time during the spring, summer, or fall. In addition to being important for the environment, bats only have one baby a year and it takes several months before this pup can fly about and be fully mobile.
