Fall Creek Texas Attic Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Fall Creek
If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. 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. Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic! While at your property, Fall Creek bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. It is a general misconception that bats are related to mice or considered flying rodents. 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. During the spring, summer, and early fall we often schedule inspections in the afternoon or evening. 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. If you have the option this is a good time to call in a professional. 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. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season.

The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area.
