McNair Texas Attic Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in McNair
This happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. 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 are extremely beneficial for insect control, as they offer an environmentally friendly method of insect control instead of using poisons and chemicals. While at your property, McNair bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay. 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. Can I trap the bats in some sort of bat trap? 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. They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months. 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. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins.

You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway.
The females live about 13 years and the males about 18.
For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry.
Step 3 is to install one-way exclusion devices that allow the bats to leave their roost site but not return into the structure.
This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding.
A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind.
The technicians at Attic Solutions can help you confront this problem.
Bats are very important for the environment because they eat a lot of insects.
These are usually one-day "awakenings" to get a drink.
The next step is to shovel the bulk of the waste away and finish by vacuuming up the rest.
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.
They are simple to construct, don’t cost much to build and can be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon teaching children about these lovely creatures.
Some are packaged as bat removal products while some people try a wider range repellent.
In addition, an adult may not consider the small animal a danger and attempt to remove it by hand.
Most homeowners policies will not cover any rodent damage or removal, but since bats are not rodents contacting your agent prior to an exclusion is suggested.
Prior to this, the adults return each morning and feed the young.
If anyone in the home was unknowingly bitten or scratched, by the time rabies symptoms appear it is too late for help.
There are some that are sprays and some are pellets.
Can I just use some sort of repellent product to get bats out of the attic? Like a powder or spray? What about a natural home remedy? Will a bright light or noises work? How about those high-pitch sound machines?
You can also get this in a fogger or mister and it’s a good idea to use a cleaner like this as well.
Each bat can poop 20 pellets per day, and if you multiply that number times hundreds of bats over a couple of years, you get an attic full of bat guano! It smells bad, it corrodes wood and drywall, and it can grow mold.
Never seal your home without performing an exclusion!
It is not unusual for a person to find they have bats in their attic, garage or other outbuildings.
These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July.
We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003.
They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June.
First they head for water and get a drink, skimming the surface on the wing.
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.
Cleanup: The bats have left droppings in your attic or walls, perhaps by the million.
If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this.
Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s).
The maternity colony will grow with each passing season and before you know it you could have a colony ranking in the hundreds.
