Richmond Texas Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Richmond
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. As a word of precaution before moving any further, ensure that you never touch the bat directly. While at your property, Richmond bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The warranty does not cover maintenance oversights such as broken windows or storm damage, and does not apply if other animals chew holes into the structure that bats discover. 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. How Do Bats Get In? 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 have to discover and adopt it on their own, and some bat houses lay dormant for many years. 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. Most people do not tolerate that idea very well, and it becomes necessary to evict the bats and repair the structure as needed to prevent them from entering in the future.

One of the first steps to getting rid of bats in the attic is to confirm they are there.
Why do bats like to live in attics?
It allows access to tall inside peaks (such as churches) as it will fit through standard doorways.
This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding.
All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes.
IT IS A FATAL DISEASE.
The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc.
They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements.
In very small amounts it's not a huge deal.
So if you seal at night, you will be sealing some in.
How To Remove Bats From The Attic?
Once you have all the bats safely out of your attic you can seal off this last point of entry permanently and start the clean-up work.
This allows us to determine what equipment would be necessary for an exclusion and repair program.
We offer up to a 3-year warranty on our exclusions (depending on structure condition) if we bat-proof the structure.
We sometimes inspect structures during the late fall or winter season, but it may only allow us to provide a rough estimate if poor weather conditions prevent us from climbing on the structure or using ladders.
Perhaps for the next few seasons.
Finally, in almost every state in America there are laws against poisoning these very beneficial animals.
If the disease is left untreated it can get far worse.
Brown or grey streaks can be left near soffits, the roof and chimneys and are prime indicators of a bat colony.
This makes it a little easier for you to search for if the number of places in the room that the bat is in leaves only a few options.

In most cases, the bats have left behind a strong odor as well.
After 1 or 2 weeks (or sometimes late fall), the devices are removed and the access holes are repaired and sealed.
What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies.
In addition to being important for the environment, bats only have one baby a year and it takes several months before this pup can fly about and be fully mobile.
Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing.
I also compare it to the squeaking sound made by quickly rubbing pieces of styrofoam together.
Seal off all points of entry with a solid seal except for one where the bats can exit.
Another way to tell if you have a bat problem in a building is to look for signs of guano on the outside of a home.
What if I have bats in my chimney?
Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out?
