Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Clear Lake Shores

First off, I have to say that if you know what you are doing, you can solve your bat problem permanently. 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. Thus, with time, bat colonies can grow to enormous sizes. While at your property, Clear Lake Shores bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. 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. How To Clean Up The Guano? 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.  What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. 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. I have more in-depth info below, but you may just want to click any of the above links to answer your specific questions.

It is possible to perform exclusions in the spring, but spring exclusions must be completed by the middle of May to eliminate the possibility of stranding young bats in the structure. If you find that you are still not locating it at that point, then what you need to do is to start searching around the floor to see if you find where droppings from the bat may have landed. Exclusions can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the size of the structure, equipment required, materials for repairs, labor time for repairs and sealing, and mileage to site. If anyone in the home was unknowingly bitten or scratched, by the time rabies symptoms appear it is too late for help. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material. 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 can obviously become quite labor intensive on some structures. They are a waste of money and people shouldn’t try these as an option. Don't let the "big" name fool you, as a Big Brown only weighs about 1/2 ounce, but has a wingspan from 11 to 13 inches.

They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years. The Little Browns only weigh about 3 to 4/10ths of an ounce, and are only 3 to 3. The bat would bite only as a defensive action. There are even those that will recommend moth balls. These are usually one-day "awakenings" to get a drink. The cost of a standard BCI approved bat house ranges from $50 to $75. I trained with an expert for two years, got my Bat Conservation International certification, and even then I required many jobs on my own before I truly got good at bat removal from attics and buildings. But in the average case, there is enough to corrode wood and drywall, and to grow mold. This allows us to reach many areas not accessible by ladders, and provides a safer working environment. They usually crawl down walls and wedge into gaps behind wood beams, fascia boards, etc. A variety of materials work well, from plastic or metal screening, to caulk, to high density polyurethane, depending on the situation.

The Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. We also inspect the attic or other possible internal roost areas if possible. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. An attic is sort of like a cave - but even better, because it's protected from predators, and high off the ground, making entry and exit easy. None of these animals are actually blind, but they do use echolocation in order to aid in navigation on the wing. Though we don’t often see bats, different species inhabit every continent in America except for Antarctica because they are an animal that needs warmth. This is a process that is not only filthy, it can be downright dangerous. You should instead try to open every possible exit for the bat and allow it a chance to escape on its own. 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. Often they pick locations near water sources so the insects they feed on are plentiful and so they don’t have to travel far for water. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay.
