Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Lake Jackson

It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. 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. Call or e-mail for a current inspection fee for your structure (please include city & state so we can figure distance to site) While at your property, Lake Jackson bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking. 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. Don't let the "big" name fool you, as a Big Brown only weighs about 1/2 ounce, but has a wingspan from 11 to 13 inches. 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 it is not the birthing season, you can do a bat removal project. 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. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material.

They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements. There are many methods used to remove the bat, such as picking it up with thick leather gloves, gently smothering it in a towel, the old tupperware and paper trick, etc. One of the most simple and common ways to exclude is to use a flexible, mesh netting. In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you don’t have to worry about those pesky bats returning. Some insurance companies may cover bat exclusions, since they are not rodents. This is done on a fairly clear night, as rainy and windy conditions are not favorable for bats to locate flying insects. In addition, an adult may not consider the small animal a danger and attempt to remove it by hand. The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. 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. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this.

The bats in our neighborhoods are insectivores, which of course means they live on insects. While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices. They are generally harmless animals, they don't chew on wires like rodents do, but the main problem they cause is that they poop and pee a lot. Also, urine. If the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures. In the US, this really only means a few significant species, most commonly the Big Brown Bat and in larger numbers, the Little Brown Bat in the northern states, and in the southern states, you'll find Evening Bats, but most commonly the Brazilian, aka Mexican Free Tailed Bat. Usually state universities will have sections of their websites dedicated to locally found bats and when the young are reared. It is a small push-around unit. If the bat has been captured make sure to take it with you so the health department can discover if it is carrying rabies or not. We also have a driveable scissors lift with a 24-foot deck height. If this doesn’t work, or if the bat seems injured, sleepy or sick you will need to be more active in removal.

Bat houses do not increase the chance of having bats in your home. In central Illinois, young bats are present in nursery colonies from early May through early August. None of the bats are killed in the process. The waste has a foul odor, but it can also grow fungal spores that people can breathe in, leading to the lung disease Histoplasmosis. They end up flying around in your living room. One of the most common diseases you have to worry about with bats is histoplasmosis as well as rabies. Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house. Due to the extremely poor condition of some structures and the rate of deterioration, some homes or buildings may not qualify for any bat-proofing guarantee. The males just roost outside, in tree bark, etc. Among many biological differences is the fact their teeth don’t continuously grow unless worn down. These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July.
