We observe the structure as the bats exit for their nightly feeding. 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. First make sure to keep safety in mind. While at your property, Bellaire bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. Their outdoor flying pattern when feeding is a very erratic pattern, usually darting back and forth and making quick direction changes. 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. They often crawl down between walls or down along plumbing or wiring, and commonly find their way into basements. 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.  I have seen MANY people install a bat house in their yard thinking the bats will move from their attic into the bat house. 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. 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.

How Do Bats Get In? The spores for this fungus can be found in drying and dried bat dung (guano). One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. Once they have slipped out of the netting they won’t be able to reenter. And it's illegal to kill them. Bats actually don’t need much space to enter your home. Due to the drastic rises taking place in the cost of gasoline, inspection costs must now be determined by distance and fuel prices. When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points. You may see staining around areas a bat can use to enter your home. If this doesn’t work, or if the bat seems injured, sleepy or sick you will need to be more active in removal. Note: Installing a bat house is NOT going to solve a bat problem in your home.

This guano will accumulate in your home and can cause health problems as well as structural damage. Bats are nocturnal and enjoy roosting in very warm areas. You can also get this in a fogger or mister and it’s a good idea to use a cleaner like this as well. Repellent products and devices have a 0% success rate. Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic! Brown or grey streaks can be left near soffits, the roof and chimneys and are prime indicators of a bat colony. You can hear the slight peeping and see bats swooping around. 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. A bat house will NOT lure the bats out. Excluding the mother bats during that period would create a problem even worse than having the bats in your attic, as the young bats would die without their mother to feed and care for them. But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs.

The females live about 13 years and the males about 18. Performing an inspection can be time consuming, as we closely inspect the entire outer structure. Some people prefer to place bat houses nearby but the likelihood of the displaced bats roosting there is limited. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. The bat exclusion process requires several steps. If there are bats in your home, then you will want get them out. Temperatures above 45 degrees are suitable, and it is common for Big Browns to hibernate in homes and buildings. It is most common for us to perform observations in the summer months during the time period when exclusions should not be performed. First, as stated above, the bats are unlikely to actually consume the poison. Bat removal is not easy, especially if you want to get rid of bats in the attic. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material.
