Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Snipe

Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. 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 Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. While at your property, Snipe bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We offer up to a 3-year warranty on our exclusions (depending on structure condition) if we bat-proof the structure. 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. Not only is this cruel it is illegal almost everywhere as bats are protected. 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.  Bats actually don’t need much space to enter your home. 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 incubation period is highly variable in animals and people.

Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house. The bulk of the droppings can be shoveled out into plastic garbage bags, then loose droppings can be vacuumed up with an industrial vacuum with filter. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. You can waste your money on any of a wide range of marketed devices or you can spend your time excluding the bats from your house and insuring they don’t reenter. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. The Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. It's not easy to get right, but it's vital to get it perfect. So, one day you were coming into your home in the early evening and you notice a bat either working its way through some loose board in the siding of your house or maybe it even swoops writing through the doorway and into your home.

  3. Do bats attack people?

Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. Most people notice the odor first. They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. The presence of a bat in your home during the winter could be an indication you have a colony of bats living in your home. Studies have shown bats have returned from distances of up to 150 miles, so trapping and "moving" bats only creates a false sense of security for homeowners who see the bats "caught and hauled away". Some of the most common species only need an inch by half inch to get in. A bat that is out in the daylight, not active or easy to catch can be sick and quite easily with rabies. If you are careful everything will be fine. EVIDENCE LEFT BEHIND: Although physical sightings of them entering and exiting the building are the best identifier, bats clearly make themselves known with the odor of their droppings, or guano. 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. The next step is to shovel the bulk of the waste away and finish by vacuuming up the rest.

Holes along TV cables, water pipes, and cracks in drywall or gaps in ceiling tiles are all possible entrance points. The bat exclusion process requires several steps. As a word of precaution before moving any further, ensure that you never touch the bat directly. People tend to be terrified of them but it’s important to note they are not aggressive and will not choose to attack a person. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. It would actually be very nice, because then we could remove bats easily (and harmlessly, just like a real exclusion). It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. Can I kill the bats with some sort of poison or fumigant? Bats can get into your walls, roof or chimney. Some of the most common species only need an inch by half inch to get in. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion!
