Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Hockley

Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. 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. You need to set the bat exclusion devices. While at your property, Hockley bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. There are some that are sprays and some are pellets. 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. The first night after a homeowner closes all access holes becomes quite a memorable experience, as the bats usually find their way into the living quarters as they desperately seek a way out of the structure. 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.  Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. 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. We can then perform an observation after sunset to locate the access holes while we are at the site.

Can a baby bat have rabies?

  • Do bats attack people?

Yes, but it is rare. But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs. Sealing the building properly is critical to the process. Restricting access of the females to the young will prevent feeding of the young and they will die. This makes it a little easier for you to search for if the number of places in the room that the bat is in leaves only a few options. While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices. Once you have all the bats safely out of your attic you can seal off this last point of entry permanently and start the clean-up work. And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem. These bats will form huge colonies, up to several million members in some cases. Once your bats are out the mess they left behind will need to be removed. Our bat removal specialists at Attic Solutions can help you take your home back from pests.

First off, I have to say that if you know what you are doing, you can solve your bat problem permanently. Bats will sometimes appear in your home during the winter months. If there are just a few bats, and it appears that there is no colony present or if there is a solitary bat in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment. As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in. One of the first steps to getting rid of bats in the attic is to confirm they are there. They are able to locate very small openings into homes and buildings, and it seems churches are one of their favorites. Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas. One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. This prevents them from finding an alternate access point into the structure. We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing.

Seal off all points of entry with a solid seal except for one where the bats can exit. They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr). I myself trained for two years with a bat removal expert before I started my own bat removal jobs, and even then, I had a lot to learn. Sometimes people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls. We provide a detailed warranty info sheet for all exclusion programs. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make. Etc. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. I've researched this for many years. Bats are often persecuted due to the fact that most people have no understanding of bat ecology and the important role they play in controlling night-flying insects. This means that they often roost in attics.
