Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bayview

Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. 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. Because bats have such a high metabolism and eat so many bugs they pass a lot of waste. While at your property, Bayview bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. SECRET PRO TIP FOR GETTING RID OF BATS IN THE ATTIC: I often do the bat exclusion and seal-up work at night! Yes, I'm high on a ladder and crawling all over a roof at night. 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. 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. 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.  The presence of a bat in your home during the winter could be an indication you have a colony of bats living in your home. 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. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion!
