Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Gilchrist

The female bats usually give birth to one baby bat each summer. 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. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. While at your property, Gilchrist bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Experience is very important when it comes to bat jobs. 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. It has a wingspan up to 13 inches, and can live up to 19 years in the wild. 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.  Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. 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're still reading this?

Though they are not blind, their eyesight is very limited especially since they are creatures of the night. It is not unusual for a bat to accidentally get into your home. Performing an inspection requires every inch of the structure to be checked thoroughly, top to bottom. Remember, it is illegal to kill bats, as most are state protected and some federally protected. Bat-proofing requires any holes or cracks over ¼ inch to be repaired, sealed, caulked, screened, or otherwise eliminated. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. NEVER try to catch a bat with your bare hands! Unless you are 100% certain the bat in your home had no contact with anyone, bats found inside your home should be taken to your local health department for rabies testing. Another way to tell if you have a bat problem in a building is to look for signs of guano on the outside of a home. Why even attempt poisons, when a live exclusion is so much more effective? You can read more about how to kill bats with bat poison here. Call or e-mail for a current inspection fee for your structure (please include city & state so we can figure distance to site) Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing.

Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects. If it is not the birthing season, you can do a bat removal project. At no time is 100% of the colony out at once. It is a time when young bats are leaving the nursery colony for the first time, and sometimes "get lost" while trying to find their way outside. To most people they look like an eagle or condor when cruising around in their house. From this point use the netting over the entry but don’t seal it up. From there, they crawl to their roosting spots. If bats find your home favorable to them as a roosting site, they are already in there. I can help you hire the right company, and how to ask the right questions on the phone and in person before you commit to hire someone. Among many biological differences is the fact their teeth don’t continuously grow unless worn down. The spores for this fungus can be found in drying and dried bat dung (guano).
