Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Kendleton

Unlike larger nuisance animals like raccoons, it can be difficult to know you have a colony of bats until you have many. 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 can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so. While at your property, Kendleton bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. 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. 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. 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.  Usually state universities will have sections of their websites dedicated to locally found bats and when the young are reared. 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. Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison.

For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. These can include large populations of disease carrying mosquitoes, beetles, gnats, moths and flies. I have more in-depth info below, but you may just want to click any of the above links to answer your specific questions. One of the most simple and common ways to exclude is to use a flexible, mesh netting. To most people they look like an eagle or condor when cruising around in their house. We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. An expert can easily tell the difference. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). It is totally optional, but we often suggest installing a bat house near the site where they are currently roosting. You should instead try to open every possible exit for the bat and allow it a chance to escape on its own.

  1. Do bat droppings look like?

  2. Do bats poop while hanging upside down?

  3. Can bats bite people?

This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. The most common species in North America that people may find in a colony on their property are the Little Brown Bat and the Mexican Free-tailed bat. EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND: Although physical sightings of them entering and exiting the building are the best identifier, bats clearly make themselves known with the odor of their droppings, or guano. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. In addition, access can be hard. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings. I've researched this for many years. If a bat is found in your home and you are not able to contact a wildlife control operator, always wear thick leather gloves and use a net, towel, plastic container, or other method for capturing. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately.

Cover your skin with heavy clothing, wear protective goggles, and make sure that you wear a surgical mask over your nose and mouth. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. 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. There is only one way to do it right: with a live exclusion. The exact species of bat is very important in performing the exclusion properly, because of different sizes, behaviors, and most of all birthing seasons. The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. Bats carry a large number of diseases and parasites that can be quite dangerous to you. You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway. We inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing. Sealing the building properly is critical to the process. Often people with histoplasmosis don’t realize they are suffering from the disease because the symptoms look quite a bit like flu symptoms.
