Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Duke

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. 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. While at your property, Duke bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. You can read more about bat repellent here. 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. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed. 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.  Having our own lift allows us to respond to jobs in a more timely manner, and the towable lift is easier on lawns as compared to bucket trucks. 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. 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.

Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months. Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in. As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in. For this reason an attic, garage or barn can be an ideal space for them.
