Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Caplen
What Kind Of Bats Are There? 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. Bat houses are not a solution for a bat problem in a structure. 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. They consume a tremendous number of night flying insects every night during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. 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. Medical council recommends that the person bit by an animal be given appropriate treatment by a professional practitioner within 12 hours from the time of the bite. 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 are not filthy little critters. 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. But for some reason, some of the strains in bats are transferable to people, and thus most cases of rabies in the United States are due to bats.

This unit is great for working on long outside walls or other projects such as installing bird netting in loading docks, parking garages, or other canopy-type structures.
If bat houses are installed before the exclusion, there is a chance they may start using the bat houses after the exclusion devices are installed.
