Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Katy

Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects. 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. We will prepare and send (e-mail, fax, or mail) a price quote for the exclusion program, which will include a detailed summary of the entire process. 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. This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding. 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. Read more about bat trapping here. 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.  Performing an inspection can be time consuming, as we closely inspect the entire outer structure. 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. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits.

One of the most simple and common ways to exclude is to use a flexible, mesh netting. The Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. We can reach about 40 feet high. I can't count the number of bat jobs I have performed "following up" companies that didn't use ladders, claiming they can "solve the problem" from the inside. When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies. You need to set the bat exclusion devices. Your attic is much better. These stains are left by the oil on their skin and/or urine. Attach it to create a funnel, which will guide the bats out. If you want to attract bats to your property and offer them shelter, then by all means do so.

This is done on a fairly clear night, as rainy and windy conditions are not favorable for bats to locate flying insects. Chances are, once you realize you have a bat problem there is a colony in your home which could be as many as forty or more mother bats. Exclusion: Install one-way exclusion devices on the primary entry/exit areas. We can reach about 40 feet high. The exact species of bat is very important in performing the exclusion properly, because of different sizes, behaviors, and most of all birthing seasons. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion. If on an eave gap, a funnel is correct. Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure. In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. 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.

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. Most people notice the odor first. I have more in-depth info below, but you may just want to click any of the above links to answer your specific questions. Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. Special netting must be set on top of the flu. This means that they often roost in attics. This protects you from getting sick from anything from the creature. We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003. Bats actually don’t need much space to enter your home.
