Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in East Columbia
If you have any special questions, feel free to email me. 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. Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be. While at your property, East Columbia bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. 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 a bat would accidentally land on you, your reaction would most likely be to brush it off. 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. First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. 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. Each bat can poop 20 pellets per day, and if you multiply that number times hundreds of bats over a couple of years, you get an attic full of bat guano! It smells bad, it corrodes wood and drywall, and it can grow mold.

They fly out at dusk, and fly back at dawn.
They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements.
They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic.
Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic!
There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics.
If Bats Are So Good For The Environment Why Not Leave Them There?
Bats usually begin leaving the structures about 15 minutes after sunset.
These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits.
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.
The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area.
We can then perform an observation after sunset to locate the access holes while we are at the site.
We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing.
They are a waste of money and people shouldn’t try these as an option.
If it's just a few bats, it may not be a big deal.
Exclusion: Install one-way exclusion devices on the primary entry/exit areas.
If the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures.
There is only one way to do it right: with a live exclusion.
How to Get Rid of Bats in the Attic: The process is definitely not simple.
Because bats have such a high metabolism and eat so many bugs they pass a lot of waste.
While this may come as a relief it’s important not to underestimate the damage they can do.
The next thing you want to do is to make sure that you are wearing heavy protective clothing.
Performing an inspection can be time consuming, as we closely inspect the entire outer structure.
When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies.
But in the average case, there is enough to corrode wood and drywall, and to grow mold.
Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it.
They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr).
So how do you find a bat that is hiding in your home?
A bite from a bat can be so small that a child might not realize it’s what happened.
They are meticulous about keeping their fur clean and groomed.
Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected.
But the attic of a home will do quite nicely.
