They form some of the largest colonies with numbers as high as 20,000. 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. 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. While at your property, Caplen bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. This virus affects the immune system, mainly the nervous system very quickly. 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. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. 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.  Bats live a very long time, and they stay in the same place year-round, conditions permitting, or they migrate and return each summer. 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. If given the opportunity they will quickly sneak into your home and set up shop there.
