Silverlake Texas Bat Extermination From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Silverlake
We have a single-man lift with a 24-foot platform height which can be used outside or inside buildings. 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. Sealing the building properly is critical to the process. While at your property, Silverlake bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Once your bats are out the mess they left behind will need to be removed. 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. Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. 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. I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask. 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. Our warranty included with total bat-proofing would apply in the event that bats locate another entry hole and return into the attic or roost area.
