Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Alief

Generally bats are going to enter a home near the roof or attic. 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. Second, I want to make it clear that the and only legal, the only humane, and by far the most effective, way to remove bats from an attic is with a live exclusion. While at your property, Alief bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Temperatures above 45 degrees are suitable, and it is common for Big Browns to hibernate in homes and buildings. 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. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. 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.  They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures. 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 people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls.

This protects you from getting sick from anything from the creature. The exclusion netting or funnels must be set perfectly to allow bats to fly out naturally at night, but then not be able to fly back in. Allowing bats to continue taking up residence in your home can lead to greater worries, including health problems and serious damage to your home.
