Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Fifth Street

Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. 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. The smell associated with bats is due to the accumulation of guano and urine below their roosting areas. While at your property, Fifth Street bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. 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. Sometimes people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls. 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.  The virus is found in the saliva of the animal and enters the bloodstream of any living thing it bites. 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. You may also see issues when outside around dusk or dawn.

Thus, with time, bat colonies can grow to enormous sizes. Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects. This happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. For this reason an attic, garage or barn can be an ideal space for them. Contrary to most bat research, Little Browns will also hibernate in structures. The bats must be removed from the attic, and they are protected as colonies, so they must not be killed.

Though it's unlikely, this mold can cause health problems for people, so I must mention it. 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. The exclusion netting or funnels must be set perfectly to allow bats to fly out naturally at night, but then not be able to fly back in. 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. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. Appropriate treatment has to be given to the person bitten by bats or any animals that might carry the rabies virus. Usually state universities will have sections of their websites dedicated to locally found bats and when the young are reared. Bats are very important for the environment because they eat a lot of insects. If on an eave gap, a funnel is correct. I do actually recommend that you hire a professional with bat removal experience for getting rid of bat problems. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program.

The pup or kit (name for a baby bat) remains unable to fly till mid to late august. It is also illegal to use any type of poisons or chemicals for bats. It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point.
