Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Traces

Bats are very important for the environment because they eat a lot of insects. 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. Poisoning these bats can fill your attic with dead bodies that will decompose and can expose you to disease and fill your house with stench. 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. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. 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. It is true that they aren’t aggressive and won’t chew up your attic. 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.  Special netting must be set on top of the flu. 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 tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures.

First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. Our bat removal specialists at Attic Solutions can help you take your home back from pests.

Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. Many people think that they should trap the bats and get rid of them this way however this is not the best way to get rid of bats. Always use a towel or some other kind of garment that you can wrap the bat in to get rid of it.

Brown or grey streaks can be left near soffits, the roof and chimneys and are prime indicators of a bat colony. After you have been completely grossed out by the fact that a bat has made its way into your home, you are probably thinking to yourself that you have to get that thing out of your house right now! They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. In fact, some species eat up to half their body weight in insects daily and nursing mothers will eat even more than that. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. The presence of bats in your attic is a big enough inconvenience, but when you have a bat problem, it’s not just their presence that you need to worry about. In most cases, the bats have left behind a strong odor as well. Not all at once, and they make several trips in and out per night.

It is true that they aren’t aggressive and won’t chew up your attic. There is a fairly narrow "window" for exclusions, which makes it impossible to perform all sealing, repairs, and exclusion work in that limited time frame. They are more abundant in rainforests and tropical climates. This is not true. The attic and walls and other areas the bats have contaminated should be cleaned. Bats can't chew, so caulk or polyurethane sealant works great! Of course, if you already have bats in your attic, then you can't seal the holes shut yet. 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 females form large maternity colonies, often in buildings such as attics or barns. It's hard to get bats to live in a bat house. You might think this is silly or counter-intuitive, but again, I've done hundreds of bat jobs, and I've learned that the work is more effective this way. The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc.
