Liverpool Texas Bat Extraction From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Liverpool
I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. 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. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). While at your property, Liverpool bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Bat houses do not increase the chance of having bats in your home. 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. Do Bats Carry Diseases? 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.

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. This can be one other clue to tell you where they are hiding.

Our work schedule was previously affected by equipment scheduling through rental companies.
Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas.
Not all at once, and they make several trips in and out per night.
Interesting fact: the bats in your attic are actually all females! They are called a maternity colony, and they are in your attic in order to have a safe place to give birth to and raise their young.
And you MUST NOT do it when there are baby bats present, or you will have a big problem.
Another change that will sometimes get bats moving inside a home or building during the winter is the arrival of an arctic cold blast.
Many homeowners are installing bat houses on their property to provide a natural method of insect control and reduce the need for pesticides.
Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program.
Often you will see them head toward a section of the house and even disappear.

They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic.
In actuality, the bats are diving to snatch up bugs.
We offer up to a 3-year warranty on our exclusions (depending on structure condition) if we bat-proof the structure.
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.

Bats do not attack people, and a fear of bats is caused by a lack of education about them.

I myself trained for two years with a bat removal expert before I started my own bat removal jobs, and even then, I had a lot to learn.
Bat excrement can be harmful to your health.
The maternity colony will grow with each passing season and before you know it you could have a colony ranking in the hundreds.
In a nutshell, you have to find out how they are flying in and out, install a special one-way device (there are several different types, for different scenarios) over the exit area, and let them fly out, but not fly back in.
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 best chance of hearing them is at dusk, as they are lining up to fly out of the house.
They are neither strong enough nor are they long-lasting enough to keep bats at bay.
Can I trap the bats in some sort of bat trap?
During the night they are wide-awake which puts you in greater danger.
TIME OF YEAR: If the attic is warm enough, year round.
It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed.
Seal-Up: After you are 100% certain that all the bats are out, remove the exclusion devices and seal the entry holes shut.
It's a simple numbers game.
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.
We can arrange our schedule and also pick up all the necessary materials for each job in advance.
These devices can be placed over the entry and when the bats emerge, they cannot return back to the colony.
