Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Kemah

Seal off all points of entry with a solid seal except for one where the bats can exit. 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. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. 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. These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony. 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. In addition to the above reasons one of the biggest reasons to not use poison is the fact it is inhumane. 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 recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs.

Contrary to most bat research, Little Browns will also hibernate in structures. None of the bats are killed in the process. Exclusions are usually performed in late summer and early fall. One of the first steps to getting rid of bats in the attic is to confirm they are there. I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. We sometimes inspect structures during the late fall or winter season, but it may only allow us to provide a rough estimate if poor weather conditions prevent us from climbing on the structure or using ladders. You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway. If across a large fascia board, polynet is correct. Allowing bats to continue taking up residence in your home can lead to greater worries, including health problems and serious damage to your home. The first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure.

So, one day you were coming into your home in the early evening and you notice a bat either working its way through some loose board in the siding of your house or maybe it even swoops writing through the doorway and into your home. For this reason you need to get the bats out safely and as quickly as possible. None of the bats are killed in the process. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. 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. If the bats are going to fly right back to their established roost site area, why not just evict them from the structure and save them the hassle of flying back. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material. It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area. The best chance of hearing them is at dusk, as they are lining up to fly out of the house. Updated 2018.

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. The bats most commonly found using homes for roosts are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. This service requires specialized equipment, such as a HEPA-vac, full-face respirators, and disposable protective clothing. Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly. Even more critical is the important role bats play in the environment and ecosystems. Read more about bat guano, aka bat poop here. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. People tend to be terrified of them but it’s important to note they are not aggressive and will not choose to attack a person.
