Snipe Texas Attic Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Snipe
If you decide to purchase a bat house, we offer to install it at no cost. 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 males just roost outside, in tree bark, etc. While at your property, Snipe bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. 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. They are going to locate a new roost site in the area anyway, so it makes no sense to haul them away first. 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. Our work schedule was previously affected by equipment scheduling through rental companies. 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. Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house.

This is the final step in the exclusion process.
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.
What if I have bats living under Spanish Barrel Tiles on my roof?
Depending on the architecture, this may be exclusion netting, screening, funnels, or cones.
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.
Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected.
Even though rabies in bats is not common on a statistical basis, rabies is a deadly disease.
People tend to be terrified of them but it’s important to note they are not aggressive and will not choose to attack a person.
Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team.
In addition to bat removal, we can handle repairs to your property and take preventative measures so you donâ€™t have to worry about those pesky bats returning.
The bats may fall through a damaged ceiling and a child accidently come into contact with one, unknowingly becoming infected with the deadly disease.
They then feast on flying insects, primarily moths and beetles.
On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins.
While this may come as a relief it’s important not to underestimate the damage they can do.
An attic is sort of like a cave - but even better, because it's protected from predators, and high off the ground, making entry and exit easy.
They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic.
Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly.
How do I clean up the bat guano in my attic?
There are a couple factors that may cause these winter appearances in a home.
When feeding, the flight pattern of a Big Brown is fairly straight, and they usually fly from 20 to 30 feet high, often emitting a chatter while flying.
As an attic cools down, cool outside air is drawn into any cracks or holes, and the bats follow the air currents to the exit holes.
It is not unusual for a person to find they have bats in their attic, garage or other outbuildings.
This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding.
You can waste your money on any of a wide range of marketed devices or you can spend your time excluding the bats from your house and insuring they don’t reenter.
During these months the bats in your attic are either delivering their baby or taking care of the flightless pup.
Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times.

They are not aggressive.
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.
After the bats are removed, it is best to clean up any guano or urine to prevent spread of disease.
You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost.
The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc.
The second step involves sealing all gaps, cracks, and holes, leaving the primary access hole(s) open.
