Nassau Bay Texas Attic Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Nassau Bay
Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. 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. Another change that will sometimes get bats moving inside a home or building during the winter is the arrival of an arctic cold blast. While at your property, Nassau Bay bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. In addition, it can positively impact the environment by offering shelter for these harmless little creatures that are so good for the ecosystem. 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. Read about the bat exclusion process. 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. We do not play those mind games, but simply utilize the best system of exclusion and bat-proofing. 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. The holes and gaps are usually tiny, about a half-inch (yes, a half-inch), and very easy to miss.

How Can You Tell Bats Are In Your Attic?
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.
TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round.
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.
This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems.
I trained with an expert for two years, got my Bat Conservation International certification, and even then I required many jobs on my own before I truly got good at bat removal from attics and buildings.
