Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Kinwood

We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. 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. An attic is sort of like a cave - but even better, because it's protected from predators, and high off the ground, making entry and exit easy. While at your property, Kinwood bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. 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. However, it is important to note that many states have laws or regulations that address bat control and which provide specific requirements and protections for these animals. 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.  The young are born in late April - early June depending on species, and the young are growing and flightless until some time in August. 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 devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony.

Check the local bat species to determine when it is safe to exclude the colony. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. 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. The virus is found in the saliva of the animal and enters the bloodstream of any living thing it bites. We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. Some social bats develop maternity colonies, or colonies of females gathered to have their young. Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing. None of the bats are killed in the process. Experience is very important when it comes to bat jobs. Bat-proofing requires any holes or cracks over ¼ inch to be repaired, sealed, caulked, screened, or otherwise eliminated. Bat houses do not increase the chance of having bats in your home.

They end up flying around in your living room. They are able to locate very small openings into homes and buildings, and it seems churches are one of their favorites. In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. They are simply opportunists. Bats are not filthy little critters. You can hear the slight peeping and see bats swooping around. Appropriate treatment has to be given to the person bitten by bats or any animals that might carry the rabies virus. However, bats in the north hibernate in colder weather. Medical council recommends that the person bit by an animal be given appropriate treatment by a professional practitioner within 12 hours from the time of the bite. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed. They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually.

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. I've researched this for many years. Read more about the bat guano cleanup process here. I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask. Buildings, attics in particular, provide a warm, dry, safe space to live in and raise baby bat pups. From there, they crawl to their roosting spots. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately. They can live up to 30 years apparently, though average lifespan in the wild may be about 7 years.
