Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Bayview
Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. 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. Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly. While at your property, Bayview bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. The cool air from your home can escape into the attic through very small cracks and holes, and the bats simply follow the currents to the source, accidentally ending up in your living area. 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. You can read more about bat repellent here. 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. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. 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. Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time.

And before you hire anyone, it's best to be educated on the subject, so browse this site and especially read the below advice.
They only give birth to one baby and this usually takes place in late spring.
They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements.
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.
If you go into the attic often you may see signs of their residency more quickly.
The pup or kit (name for a baby bat) remains unable to fly till mid to late august.
While poison can be very effective in getting rid of any bats in your home that actually eat the poison (bats feed off live insects so nibbling on a block of poison is unlikely) it is one of the worst choices.
Keep in mind that a bat will avoid sunlight if at all possible.
Don't let the "big" name fool you, as a Big Brown only weighs about 1/2 ounce, but has a wingspan from 11 to 13 inches.
Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas.

Inspection: You have to find out how the bats are getting in and out of the building, where they are living, what species they are, and what damage they have caused.
If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands.
When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points.
Studies have shown bats have returned from distances of up to 150 miles, so trapping and "moving" bats only creates a false sense of security for homeowners who see the bats "caught and hauled away".
The bats may fall through a damaged ceiling and a child accidently come into contact with one, unknowingly becoming infected with the deadly disease.
Excluding the mother bats during that period would create a problem even worse than having the bats in your attic, as the young bats would die without their mother to feed and care for them.
If the bat gets into your home during the nighttime then the best thing you can do is to shut off the room that you believe that it is in and wait till the day.
The bats are usually excluded through one-way exclusion devices.
So if you seal at night, you will be sealing some in.
Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion.
They are simply opportunists.
Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them.
Exclusions can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on the size of the structure, equipment required, materials for repairs, labor time for repairs and sealing, and mileage to site.
You must do a 100% effective sealup job, with no mess-ups, and the exclusion devices must be the correct kind.
Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house.
Performing an inspection requires every inch of the structure to be checked thoroughly, top to bottom.
They may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months.
