Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Katy

Whatever the issue, Attic Solutions can fix the damage. 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. When feeding, the flight pattern of a Big Brown is fairly straight, and they usually fly from 20 to 30 feet high, often emitting a chatter while flying. While at your property, Katy bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. 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. 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. 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.  Our work schedule was previously affected by equipment scheduling through rental companies. 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 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.

They have very keen hearing and use a form of sonar to pick up on food and obstacles, helping to guide them through darkness. And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem. Bat excrement can be harmful to your health. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately. The reason bats sometimes appear to be swooping towards us is due to the fact they are simply zoning in on the insects we attract. This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion. Also, urine.

Bats may use caves or old mining shafts for roosts, but many of those areas are becoming scarce. 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. Some of the most common species only need an inch by half inch to get in. Female bats give birth to only one baby bat per year, and raise it well. We provide a detailed warranty info sheet for all exclusion programs. The cost for bat-proofing varies greatly depending on the combination of the previous factors.

It may have just eaten a West Nile Virus infected mosquito that was about to bite you! For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. You can also get this in a fogger or mister and it’s a good idea to use a cleaner like this as well. One of the easiest ways to tell if you have bats is hearing their scraping, rustling or squeaking. Though it's unlikely, this mold can cause health problems for people, so I must mention it.
