Port Bolivar Texas Bat Exclusion From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Port Bolivar
The Mexican Free-Tail Bat Tadarida brasiliensis is common in the south. 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. The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. While at your property, Port Bolivar bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings. 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. As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it. 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 females form large maternity colonies, often in buildings such as attics or barns. 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. However, they are not out in the open.
