Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Klein

Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around. 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. Roosting preference depends on the species and even gender of the bats, but we are only concerned with colonizing bats such as the three mentioned above. While at your property, Klein bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Chimneys are a different architecture than an attic, of course. 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. The waste has a foul odor, but it can also grow fungal spores that people can breathe in, leading to the lung disease Histoplasmosis. 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.  They are going to locate a new roost site in the area anyway, so it makes no sense to haul them away first. 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. Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out?

You'd be amazed at the holes you see at night that escape you by day, and the bat behaviors you see that ensure 100% success. You may also see issues when outside around dusk or dawn. Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. Often they pick locations near water sources so the insects they feed on are plentiful and so they don’t have to travel far for water. A fully infested bat attic is one of the biggest and most challenging problems in the field of problem wildlife removal. Chimneys are a different architecture than an attic, of course. Sometimes people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls. Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible. They then fly back out to feed some more. Seal-Up: After you are 100% certain that all the bats are out, remove the exclusion devices and seal the entry holes shut. But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs.

This means that they often roost in attics. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. If a bat would accidentally land on you, your reaction would most likely be to brush it off. The holes and gaps are usually tiny, about a half-inch (yes, a half-inch), and very easy to miss. Depending on the architecture, this may be exclusion netting, screening, funnels, or cones. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. But they are fragile animals, and they can't claw or chew their way back in, so if you do your job right, you'll never have bats inside again. They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr). We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003. Bats live a very long time, and they stay in the same place year-round, conditions permitting, or they migrate and return each summer.

Do bat droppings look like?

  • Can bat droppings cause disease?

  • What do bat droppings smell like?

  • What are the signs and symptoms of histoplasmosis?

This guano will accumulate in your home and can cause health problems as well as structural damage. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence. This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding. Untreated histoplasmosis can cause the lung infection to spread to organs like the liver and spleen. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points. Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time.

Buildings, attics in particular, provide a warm, dry, safe space to live in and raise baby bat pups. There are a couple factors that may cause these winter appearances in a home. It would actually be very nice, because then we could remove bats easily (and harmlessly, just like a real exclusion). Having our own lift allows us to respond to jobs in a more timely manner, and the towable lift is easier on lawns as compared to bucket trucks.
