Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Taylor Lake Village

Inspection fees are due at the time of the site inspection. 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. It may be wise to arrange for an inspection in the spring. While at your property, Taylor Lake Village bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Why? Because it's so much easier to spot all the gaps and crack at night while focusing a high-beam headlamp on the building. 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. Though in very few cases symptoms are seen immediately, in many instances it is not recognizable for even months. These cases usually result in death. 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.  The young bats would die without their mothers, and an attic full of dead animals is much worse than having the bats roosting there. 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. If you hear this peeping and see bats it’s good to pay attention to where they go.

  • What does bat guano do?

The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. This guano will accumulate in your home and can cause health problems as well as structural damage. We can then perform an observation after sunset to locate the access holes while we are at the site. Bats will sometimes appear in your home during the winter months. Bats are not going to "move" from your home into a bat house. I do highly recommend that you hire a professional with experience to solve your bat problem. One of the most common diseases you have to worry about with bats is histoplasmosis as well as rabies. They then feast on flying insects, primarily moths and beetles. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal. 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. It's a simple numbers game.

But because they can enter via dozens of other non-primary, you want to seal off potential entry holes beforehand, so that excluded bats don't find an alternate way in. I do actually recommend that you hire a professional with bat removal experience for getting rid of bat problems. The question becomes, how do you go about doing that? If you are not exactly sure where the bat went you have some work ahead of you. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. They do not want to be in your home, but are simply reacting to cool air currents on instinct. Once people find that repellents aren’t going to work for their bat problem they will often turn to trying to use poison. The piles of urine and feces can contaminate insulation, rot wood and ruin ceilings. When this happens it can be a natural reaction to try chasing the animal out with a racket or a broom. One of the most common diseases you have to worry about with bats is histoplasmosis as well as rabies. It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air.

For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. The Mexican Free-Tail Bat Tadarida brasiliensis is common in the south. There is a fairly narrow "window" for exclusions, which makes it impossible to perform all sealing, repairs, and exclusion work in that limited time frame. We offer up to a 3-year warranty on our exclusions (depending on structure condition) if we bat-proof the structure. Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. At no time is 100% of the colony out at once. NEVER try to catch a bat with your bare hands! Unless you are 100% certain the bat in your home had no contact with anyone, bats found inside your home should be taken to your local health department for rabies testing. The process is complex, because bats can enter such tiny areas, about 3/8 inch. You can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so. I also compare it to the squeaking sound made by quickly rubbing pieces of styrofoam together.
