Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Hillcrest

But it is not an easy task, especially if you are not experienced. 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. TYPE & TIME OF NOISE: Bats are nocturnal, but they are pretty quiet in small numbers, and most people don't notice any noise. While at your property, Hillcrest bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Because of my experience, and knowing what it takes to do it right, and the consequences of failure, I highly recommend hiring a professional who has a lot of experience. 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. Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects. 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.  Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. 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. A variety of materials work well, from plastic or metal screening, to caulk, to high density polyurethane, depending on the situation.

They end up flying around in your living room. We observe the structure as the bats exit for their nightly feeding. The real challenge is meticulous work, and not missing a single tiny area. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. Gently carry the bat out and lay in grass near a tree or shrub. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. A fully infested bat attic is one of the biggest and most challenging problems in the field of problem wildlife removal. Bats may use caves or old mining shafts for roosts, but many of those areas are becoming scarce. Even though all warm-blooded mammals can carry rabies, for some reason there are different strains, and humans aren't susceptible to many of them. These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July.

How to Get Rid of Bats in the Attic: The process is definitely not simple. But the attic of a home will do quite nicely.

It was previously believed bats migrated to caves or mines for hibernation, but we now know many will hibernate inside homes and buildings.

Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. Excluding the mother bats during that period would create a problem even worse than having the bats in your attic, as the young bats would die without their mother to feed and care for them. They are simply opportunists. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed.
