What problems do bats cause when they live in a building? 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. This happens a lot, particularly in southern states, where these roofs are more common. While at your property, Caplen bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The bats most commonly found using homes for roosts are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. 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. What Is Rabies? Rabies is a disease that is caused by the virus Lyssavirus Rabies. 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.  These bats reach maturity between 6 and 9 months and babies are born between mid-June and July. 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. Most homeowners policies will not cover any rodent damage or removal, but since bats are not rodents contacting your agent prior to an exclusion is suggested.
