Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Timber Meadows

First make sure to keep safety in mind. 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. Bats, being a protected species, must be handled by trained professionals like our team. While at your property, Timber Meadows bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. What about the lights, sounds and sound emitting devices you can find on the market? There are many different types of electrical devices being sold as bat repellents and the truth to this is that they are generally ineffective as well. 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. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. 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.  Bats can't chew, so caulk or polyurethane sealant works great! Of course, if you already have bats in your attic, then you can't seal the holes shut yet. 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. I have found scratch marks from bats (in the dust) inside furnace and air conditioning ductwork in a home and also an apartment complex, and both sites had experienced bats "appearing" from the register vents in mid-winter.

Contrary to most bat research, Little Browns will also hibernate in structures. They end up flying around in your living room. First of all, it's probably there because it was part of a colony living in your attic or walls, and it accidentally crawled into the living area. Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. 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. 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. You can't do an exclusion while the young are flightless, because they'll all either die or crawl down the walls of your house and many will find a way inside your rooms.

Though they are not blind, their eyesight is very limited especially since they are creatures of the night. Though a bat isn’t an aggressive animal or a top carrier of rabies they can transmit the disease. Since bats consume extremely high numbers of mosquitoes and other night-flying insects, they are very beneficial to have around. Bats are adapting by using man-made structures for roosting and nursery colonies. Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony. 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. It is the absolute worst thing you can do, but unfortunately the most common step that is taken. But the attic of a home will do quite nicely. The exact species of bat is very important in performing the exclusion properly, because of different sizes, behaviors, and most of all birthing seasons. It may have just eaten a West Nile Virus infected mosquito that was about to bite you! The bats are usually excluded through one-way exclusion devices.
