Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Alvin

Check the local bat species to determine when it is safe to exclude the colony. 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. Certain bat species may hibernate in groups or "clusters", so a single bat appearing in your home during the winter could possibly indicate there are more bats hibernating in the structure. 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. The methods for removal are different. 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. The infection starts in the lungs and generally hits people who have a weak immune system such as the elderly, already ill or young children. 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.  There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. 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. Most of the do-it-yourself bat removal attempts that I see have ended in disaster, before I was called out.

Poisoning these bats can fill your attic with dead bodies that will decompose and can expose you to disease and fill your house with stench. Depending on the architecture, this may be exclusion netting, screening, funnels, or cones. Some social bats develop maternity colonies, or colonies of females gathered to have their young. First make sure to keep safety in mind. In addition to the above reasons one of the biggest reasons to not use poison is the fact it is inhumane.
