Riverstone Texas Bat Extraction From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Riverstone
The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. 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. And, in addition to those hazards, they often leave behind an offensive odor that can be difficult to remove. While at your property, Riverstone bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. 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. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. 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. What species of bats typically live in attics? 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. Among many biological differences is the fact their teeth don’t continuously grow unless worn down.

We observe the structure as the bats exit for their nightly feeding.
Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing.
Once they have slipped out of the netting they won’t be able to reenter.
They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects.
For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry.
These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits.
If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this.
Bat houses do not increase the chance of having bats in your home.
You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway.
They end up flying around in your living room.
They are simply opportunists.
METHOD OF CONTROL: Mothballs or ammonia won't make them leave, nor will ultrasonic sound emitters or strobe lights.
After the bats have left, the holes can be sealed.
The technicians at Attic Solutions can help you confront this problem.
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.
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.
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.
This would be pointless, not to mention very harmful to the bats, and usually resulting in a failed exclusion.
When it comes to bats this is where the damage comes from.
The observation night can be at any time during the spring, summer, or fall.
It can accumulate in huge amounts, contaminating an attic and potentially causing lung disease for the people in the house.
Every state has different protocol regarding bats found in homes, so before releasing them outside call your local health department or animal control for information.
They are a waste of money and people shouldn’t try these as an option.
The summer observations allow us to be prepared for exclusions when the proper time comes.
A bat house will NOT lure the bats out.
What Is The Natural Habitat Of Bats?
We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points.
We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs.
Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points.
I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask.
Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times.
