These bats are small, with a wingspan of 8 inches, and a weight of less than half an ounce. 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 expert can easily tell the difference. While at your property, League City bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Appropriate treatment has to be given to the person bitten by bats or any animals that might carry the rabies virus. 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. From there, they crawl to their roosting spots. 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. As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it. 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. There are several different approaches to remedying a bat infestation in an attic.
