Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Kemah

A quick tip: If a company claiming to do bat work shows up for an inspection without a ladder, be cautious. 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. Above are some photos I've taken at various bat jobs. While at your property, Kemah bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Most people get quite concerned about having a bat in their home because of how dangerous these animals can be. 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. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. 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.  Another way to tell if you have a bat problem in a building is to look for signs of guano on the outside of a home. 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. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies.

Always use personal protection when cleaning up guano or urine. It is a time when young bats are leaving the nursery colony for the first time, and sometimes "get lost" while trying to find their way outside. They are simply opportunists. Bats sleep by hanging from their feet above the ground below. 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. Though it's unlikely, this mold can cause health problems for people, so I must mention it. It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point. But the numbers are very low. After 1 or 2 weeks (or sometimes late fall), the devices are removed and the access holes are repaired and sealed. 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.

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. You can read more about bat repellent here. When bats take shelter in a home it is almost always an all-female maternity colony setting up house to have their babies. It is absolutely critical this isn’t done during between May and the end of August. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. Read more about bats in the chimney here.

Hibernating bats may respond to a sudden warm-up in outside temperature, which may be a false signal that spring is near. We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. This makes them look much bigger, especially if one is flying around inside your home. The summer observations allow us to be prepared for exclusions when the proper time comes. Bat removal is not easy, especially if you want to get rid of bats in the attic. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. NUISANCE CONCERNS: The primary concern involves large colonies.
