Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Anchor

Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. 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. They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements. While at your property, Anchor bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. They may make several trips per night. 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. Among many biological differences is the fact their teeth don’t continuously grow unless worn down. 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.  Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time. 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 waste has a foul odor, but it can also grow fungal spores that people can breathe in, leading to the lung disease Histoplasmosis.

We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points. Exclusions can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the size of the structure, equipment required, materials for repairs, labor time for repairs and sealing, and mileage to site. The reason bats sometimes appear to be swooping towards us is due to the fact they are simply zoning in on the insects we attract. The colonies of bats are usually composed entirely of female bats, and are called a maternity colony. 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. A bat that is out in the daylight, not active or easy to catch can be sick and quite easily with rabies. As a word of precaution before moving any further, ensure that you never touch the bat directly. Simple in concept, but very hard to get right!

It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed. This leaves no way for them to easily get out and will end up causing these important little creatures to die in your attic. The only good way to get rid of bats in your attic is to perform exclusion. You must do a 100% effective sealup job, with no mess-ups, and the exclusion devices must be the correct kind. One of the most simple and common ways to exclude is to use a flexible, mesh netting. Then it's important to fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that will eat away at remaining organic matter and kill pathogens. Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in. The incubation period is highly variable in animals and people. And, in addition to those hazards, they often leave behind an offensive odor that can be difficult to remove. This guano will accumulate in your home and can cause health problems as well as structural damage. After a while they get full and head back to the roost in order to rest.
