The question becomes, how do you go about doing that? If you are not exactly sure where the bat went you have some work ahead of you. 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. With a large colony of bats, this really adds up. While at your property, Bolivar Peninsula bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. 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. Don't let the "big" name fool you, as a Big Brown only weighs about 1/2 ounce, but has a wingspan from 11 to 13 inches. 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.  Prior to this, the adults return each morning and feed the young. 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. Often people with histoplasmosis don’t realize they are suffering from the disease because the symptoms look quite a bit like flu symptoms.

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. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter. These can include large populations of disease carrying mosquitoes, beetles, gnats, moths and flies. Until an exclusion can be performed, the problem of bats entering the living quarters can be solved or minimized by sealing all holes and cracks leading from the attic into your living areas. These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July. Unlike larger nuisance animals like raccoons, it can be difficult to know you have a colony of bats until you have many. 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. There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. If the bat gets into your home during the nighttime then the best thing you can do is to shut off the room that you believe that it is in and wait till the day.

Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion. Roosting preference depends on the species and even gender of the bats, but we are only concerned with colonizing bats such as the three mentioned above. What if I have bats in my chimney?

The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this.
