Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Alvin

Bats carry a large number of diseases and parasites that can be quite dangerous to you. 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. People who fail to research the subject will usually seal the holes during the day when the bats are roosting inside. While at your property, Alvin bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. 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. On many structures it is possible to locate the access point(s) by performing a detailed inspection of the outer structure. 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 are more abundant in rainforests and tropical climates. 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. Read my Hiring Advice - What to Ask guide here.

These tactics have been ruled fraudulent by the FTC, and they DO NOT WORK. I myself trained for two years with a bat removal expert before I started my own bat removal jobs, and even then, I had a lot to learn. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. Holes along TV cables, water pipes, and cracks in drywall or gaps in ceiling tiles are all possible entrance points. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make. In a nutshell, you have to find out how they are flying in and out, install a special one-way device (there are several different types, for different scenarios) over the exit area, and let them fly out, but not fly back in. Why do bats like to live in attics? If it's just a few bats, it may not be a big deal. Not all of the bats leave at the same time. Untreated histoplasmosis can cause the lung infection to spread to organs like the liver and spleen. This is why you need to make your search in places where it could be in the dark as the sun shines into your living room, bedroom, or attic.

Normally these devices are not installed until mid-August. Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. Some insurance companies may cover bat exclusions, since they are not rodents. In central Illinois, young bats are present in nursery colonies from early May through early August. Bats are adapting by using man-made structures for roosting and nursery colonies. They gather to mate before hibernating and the females store the sperm inside of their body until after hibernation. The biggest problem that comes with bats is the guano. One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. This makes it a little easier for you to search for if the number of places in the room that the bat is in leaves only a few options. The holes and gaps are usually tiny, about a half-inch (yes, a half-inch), and very easy to miss.

The Rabies virus is called a Neurotropic Virus. If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands. If it's a colony of bats living in a building, they crawl to the edge, and fly out. Your attic is much better. After the bats are removed, it is best to clean up any guano or urine to prevent spread of disease. Above are some photos I've taken at various bat jobs. The cost of a standard BCI approved bat house ranges from $50 to $75. 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. Instead of using traps, bat control is done by using a systematic exclusion program. Some are packaged as bat removal products while some people try a wider range repellent. It is totally optional, but we often suggest installing a bat house near the site where they are currently roosting.
