Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Hedwig Village

When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points. 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. Bats sleep by hanging from their feet above the ground below. While at your property, Hedwig Village bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The bats are usually excluded through one-way exclusion devices. 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. The piles of urine and feces can contaminate insulation, rot wood and ruin ceilings. 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.  Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. 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. So, one day you were coming into your home in the early evening and you notice a bat either working its way through some loose board in the siding of your house or maybe it even swoops writing through the doorway and into your home.

Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. Your attic is much better. None of the bats are killed in the process. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. You can read more about bat repellent here. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. There are some that are sprays and some are pellets. This can obviously become quite labor intensive on some structures. You can't do an exclusion while the young are flightless, because they'll all either die or crawl down the walls of your house and many will find a way inside your rooms. If there is a bat colony in the attic, it is best to exclude the bats from returning. However, a large swarm of thousands of bats makes a hell of a ruckus, what with the crawling and flying and squeaking of the whole bunch.

If it's just a few bats, it may not be a big deal. However, it is important to note that many states have laws or regulations that address bat control and which provide specific requirements and protections for these animals. If you find that the bat is not hanging from anyplace, then your next option is to search for areas in the home where the bat could crawl into something. Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. Bat removal is not easy, especially if you want to get rid of bats in the attic. Bats use echolocation in order to aid in navigation and feeding on the wing. You may also see issues when outside around dusk or dawn. They usually roost in tight, hot areas in the structure.

Even though all warm-blooded mammals can carry rabies, for some reason there are different strains, and humans aren't susceptible to many of them. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. If you exclude the mothers now you can end up with a bunch of babies dying in your attic. None of the bats are killed in the process. Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around. This means that they often roost in attics. This is done on a fairly clear night, as rainy and windy conditions are not favorable for bats to locate flying insects. Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease. Bats are not filthy little critters.
