Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Tiki Island

To most people they look like an eagle or condor when cruising around in their house. 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. Cover your skin with heavy clothing, wear protective goggles, and make sure that you wear a surgical mask over your nose and mouth. While at your property, Tiki Island bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. If a bat is found in your home and you are not able to contact a wildlife control operator, always wear thick leather gloves and use a net, towel, plastic container, or other method for capturing. 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. In addition to the above reasons one of the biggest reasons to not use poison is the fact it is inhumane. 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.  Getting rid of bats in your attic can be tricky and time consuming but it can be done. 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. Bat removal is not easy, especially if you want to get rid of bats in the attic.

It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point. For this reason an attic, garage or barn can be an ideal space for them. The process is complex, because bats can enter such tiny areas, about 3/8 inch. The males just roost outside, in tree bark, etc. When they can they will choose hollow trees, caves and similar areas for shelters. They are generally harmless animals, they don't chew on wires like rodents do, but the main problem they cause is that they poop and pee a lot. They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr). Though we don’t often see bats, different species inhabit every continent in America except for Antarctica because they are an animal that needs warmth. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. Read more about how to catch bats inside the house here. This allows us to reach many areas not accessible by ladders, and provides a safer working environment.

The smell associated with bats is due to the accumulation of guano and urine below their roosting areas. These are very effective. Once you have properly attired yourself so that your skin is protected, now your search can begin. First of all, it's probably there because it was part of a colony living in your attic or walls, and it accidentally crawled into the living area. They do not want to be in your home, but are simply reacting to cool air currents on instinct. Bats aren’t like rodents. In actuality, the bats are diving to snatch up bugs. In addition, an adult may not consider the small animal a danger and attempt to remove it by hand. After the bats are removed, it is best to clean up any guano or urine to prevent spread of disease. Many people seem to think that all bats have rabies. Bats usually begin leaving the structures about 15 minutes after sunset.

Many bat problems happen when the young start to crawl around and fly, and sometimes the inexperienced young crawl down into the house. They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. This would occur when a bat is picked up or otherwise mistakenly contacted. The males just roost outside, in tree bark, etc. It is a time when young bats are leaving the nursery colony for the first time, and sometimes "get lost" while trying to find their way outside. When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. The pup or kit (name for a baby bat) remains unable to fly till mid to late august. Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic! TYPE & TIME OF NOISE: Bats are nocturnal, but they are pretty quiet in small numbers, and most people don't notice any noise. The Little Browns only weigh about 3 to 4/10ths of an ounce, and are only 3 to 3. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately.
