Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Port Bolivar

The Rabies virus is called a Neurotropic Virus. 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 are adapting by using man-made structures for roosting and nursery colonies. While at your property, Port Bolivar bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. There are even those that will recommend moth balls. 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. And, in addition to those hazards, they often leave behind an offensive odor that can be difficult to remove. 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.  We will prepare and send (e-mail, fax, or mail) a price quote for the exclusion program, which will include a detailed summary of the entire process. 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. Bats may use caves or old mining shafts for roosts, but many of those areas are becoming scarce.

There are many methods used to remove the bat, such as picking it up with thick leather gloves, gently smothering it in a towel, the old tupperware and paper trick, etc. Among many biological differences is the fact their teeth don’t continuously grow unless worn down. If the colony is large enough, people also notice the noise they make. 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. Those that have emphysema, pneumonia, or bronchitis are also particularly prone. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home.

It is a time when young bats are leaving the nursery colony for the first time, and sometimes "get lost" while trying to find their way outside. 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. The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. The virus is found in the saliva of the animal and enters the bloodstream of any living thing it bites. If this doesn’t work, or if the bat seems injured, sleepy or sick you will need to be more active in removal. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal.
