The sound is similar to a cricket or katydid noise. 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. 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. 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. If the temperature drops rapidly to a level much below about 45 degrees where the bats are hibernating (attic, etc), they will attempt to locate an area inside the home or building with more favorable temperatures. 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 then feast on flying insects, primarily moths and beetles. 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.  On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. 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. One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found.

In addition to being important for the environment, bats only have one baby a year and it takes several months before this pup can fly about and be fully mobile. We recently (Aug/05) added a HEPA-vac to our equipment, and are now able to offer attic or other clean-outs. The Rabies virus is called a Neurotropic Virus. If they are not able to find their way into your living quarters, they die in the attic. Read more about bats in a barrel tile roof here.

Of course! Seal every gap, crack, and hole in your house. Many bat problems happen when the young start to crawl around and fly, and sometimes the inexperienced young crawl down into the house. Buildings, attics in particular, provide a warm, dry, safe space to live in and raise baby bat pups. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. They do not want to be in your home, but are simply reacting to cool air currents on instinct. However, bats in the north hibernate in colder weather.

You can't relocate bats, because they will migrate hundreds of miles back to their roost. Almost every person who gets bit does so because they pick up a sick or injured bat. Why? Because it's so much easier to spot all the gaps and crack at night while focusing a high-beam headlamp on the building. Special netting must be set on top of the flu.
