Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Lynchburg

The next time you see a bat pass close by, you should be thankful. 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 Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus) is also common in the northern areas. While at your property, Lynchburg bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. It was previously believed bats migrated to caves or mines for hibernation, but we now know many will hibernate inside homes and buildings. 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. Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them. 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.  These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July. 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 males roost alone in solitary areas, such as trees.

What Kind Of Damage Can Bats Cause? Though it's unlikely, this mold can cause health problems for people, so I must mention it. 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. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). They have tiny little teeth, but are still able to inflict a bite to human skin. It’s critical if bitten by a bat that you or your child seeks medical treatment immediately. The methods used for bat removal have nothing in common with the methods normally used for animals such as raccoons, opossums, squirrels, groundhogs, and others. But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs. I've researched this for many years. Bats are protected by Illinois state wildlife code, and no chemicals or poisons can be used. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make.

Seal-Up: After you are 100% certain that all the bats are out, remove the exclusion devices and seal the entry holes shut. Second, if they do eat the poison you are going to have to deal with dead bats. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. People seldom notice small cracks or gaps on higher buildings, but a 1/2" crack in a mortar joint 30 or 40 feet off the ground becomes a superhighway for bats to enter a structure. We have added 2 additional lifts to our equipment in late 2005. It can accumulate in huge amounts, contaminating an attic and potentially causing lung disease for the people in the house. The bat would bite only as a defensive action. Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. If there are just a few bats, and it appears that there is no colony present or if there is a solitary bat in the attic, they can be physically removed by a trained professional who has proper protective equipment. A person will suffer lung scarring and lasting damage as well as damage to internal organs and blood vessels. Housing bats on your property is an effective and natural means of insect control.

Most people notice the odor first. The first thing for you to do is to relax a moment. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. None of these animals are actually blind, but they do use echolocation in order to aid in navigation on the wing. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. It is also illegal to use any type of poisons or chemicals for bats. The next step is to shovel the bulk of the waste away and finish by vacuuming up the rest.
