Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Traces

After the bats have left, the holes can be sealed. 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. Bats do not chew their way into structures!They only use gaps and holes that already exist, and locate them by sensing air currents and temperature. While at your property, Traces bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. One of the first steps to getting rid of bats in the attic is to confirm they are there. 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. Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out? 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 are great to have in the neighborhood, just not in 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. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe.

Also check for air currents which may disclose other access points. The young bats would die without their mothers, and an attic full of dead animals is much worse than having the bats roosting there. They have tiny little teeth, but are still able to inflict a bite to human skin. This is done on a fairly clear night, as rainy and windy conditions are not favorable for bats to locate flying insects. Burning bats will flood your living room. They reach maturity at about eight months when they can start mating and raising their own young. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. It is also illegal to use any type of poisons or chemicals for bats. Many bats use echolocation to travel and hunt. They may make several trips per night. The most common species in North America that people may find in a colony on their property are the Little Brown Bat and the Mexican Free-tailed bat.

The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc. Many bats use echolocation to travel and hunt. Bats are very sensitive to air currents, and the cool air which enters an attic after sunset is what triggers the bats to exit the structure and feed each night. Not all of the bats leave at the same time. This is done on a fairly clear night, as rainy and windy conditions are not favorable for bats to locate flying insects. Can I trap the bats in some sort of bat trap? Each bat can poop 20 pellets per day, and if you multiply that number times hundreds of bats over a couple of years, you get an attic full of bat guano! It smells bad, it corrodes wood and drywall, and it can grow mold. In some instances the primary entrance/exit holes are the only access points available, and basic repairs and an exclusion may be sufficient, while others require a week or more just to perform the complete bat-proofing process. First make sure to keep safety in mind. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems.

While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices. Bat houses are not a solution for a bat problem in a structure. Chances are, once you realize you have a bat problem there is a colony in your home which could be as many as forty or more mother bats. Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points. Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around. If you encounter such a problem, it is highly recommended that you contact a pest control professional who is trained in bat removal. We also have a driveable scissors lift with a 24-foot deck height. Call or e-mail for a current inspection fee for your structure (please include city & state so we can figure distance to site) This will help you know how they are getting in and you can use this knowledge when it comes time to exclude them. S. Many bat problems happen when the young start to crawl around and fly, and sometimes the inexperienced young crawl down into the house.
