I have more in-depth info below, but you may just want to click any of the above links to answer your specific questions. 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. Read more about bat maternity season here. While at your property, Coady bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home. 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. Buildings, attics in particular, provide a warm, dry, safe space to live in and raise baby bat pups. 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.  This will help you know how they are getting in and you can use this knowledge when it comes time to exclude them. 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. As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it.

If Bats Are So Good For The Environment Why Not Leave Them There? Seal off all points of entry with a solid seal except for one where the bats can exit. These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. Some structures may require high-lifts or other equipment to perform a bat exclusion and bat-proofing. They are simple to construct, don’t cost much to build and can be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon teaching children about these lovely creatures. How do I clean up the bat guano in my attic? It allows access to tall inside peaks (such as churches) as it will fit through standard doorways. People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2" crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. This guano will accumulate in your home and can cause health problems as well as structural damage. We can reach about 40 feet high. Updated 2018.

When it comes to bats this is where the damage comes from. The young bats would die without their mothers, and an attic full of dead animals is much worse than having the bats roosting there. Due to the extremely poor condition of some structures and the rate of deterioration, some homes or buildings may not qualify for any bat-proofing guarantee. After 1 or 2 weeks (or sometimes late fall), the devices are removed and the access holes are repaired and sealed. Also, urine. Since they are nocturnal and for the most part very quiet animals, they often use attics for years before the odor from the build-up of droppings alerts us to their presence. Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points. 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. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. They are more abundant in rainforests and tropical climates. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing.

HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points. They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures. They sometimes find their way into basements for the winter hibernation period. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. This is not true. The next time you see a bat pass close by, you should be thankful. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. One of the major concerns is that, bats can transmit rabies to humans.
