Friendswood Texas Bat Extermination From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Friendswood
We sometimes inspect structures during the late fall or winter season, but it may only allow us to provide a rough estimate if poor weather conditions prevent us from climbing on the structure or using ladders. 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 sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. While at your property, Friendswood bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. 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. One of the first steps to getting rid of bats in the attic is to confirm they are there. 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. Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. 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. Very similar to the Mexican free-tail, the Little Brown Bat is also nocturnal, hibernates and feeds on large amounts of insects.

Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are out?
