Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Damon

If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands. 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. Holes along TV cables, water pipes, and cracks in drywall or gaps in ceiling tiles are all possible entrance points. While at your property, Damon bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. If you decide to purchase a bat house, we offer to install it at no cost. 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. If you are careful everything will be fine. 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 happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. 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. This is a process that is not only filthy, it can be downright dangerous.

Buildings, attics in particular, provide a warm, dry, safe space to live in and raise baby bat pups. They fly out at dusk, and fly back at dawn. TYPE & TIME OF NOISE: Bats are nocturnal, but they are pretty quiet in small numbers, and most people don't notice any noise. If you find that you are still not locating it at that point, then what you need to do is to start searching around the floor to see if you find where droppings from the bat may have landed. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people. Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around. Releasing them usually sends them right back to your home and trapping is difficult and dangerous for the person and the bat. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. The exact species of bat is very important in performing the exclusion properly, because of different sizes, behaviors, and most of all birthing seasons. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. Some of the most common species only need an inch by half inch to get in.

First of all, DO NOT START A FIRE. The piles of urine and feces can contaminate insulation, rot wood and ruin ceilings.
