Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Port Bolivar

Can I trap the bats in some sort of bat trap? 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.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. 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. 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 it is possible to locate the access point(s) by performing a detailed inspection of the outer structure. 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. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make.
