Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Sugar Land

I wear a biohazard suit and rubber gloves, but most importantly, a HEPA air filter mask. 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 bats must be removed from the attic, and they are protected as colonies, so they must not be killed. While at your property, Sugar Land bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. There are quite a few different species of bats in North America; however the ones that are known for colonizing are the species that most often cause problems. 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. Our estimates may include the optional clean-out costs if requested. 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 trained with an expert for two years, got my Bat Conservation International certification, and even then I required many jobs on my own before I truly got good at bat removal from attics and buildings. 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. This is not true.
