Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in McNair

They end up flying around in your living room. 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 very sensitive to air currents, and the cool air which enters an attic after sunset is what triggers the bats to exit the structure and feed each night. While at your property, McNair bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. 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. 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. What Kind Of Damage Can Bats Cause? 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 females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc. 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. First of all, DO NOT START A FIRE.

Good question, but no. If a bat is weak, sick looking and found during the day there is a good likelihood it could be carrying rabies. They don’t really nest which means they will not tear at insulation, shred wires or chew through wood and pipe. People who fail to research the subject will usually seal the holes during the day when the bats are roosting inside. Sometimes people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls. The best way to do this is to use a specially made enzyme-based microbial cleaner that can eliminate organic material. They usually roost in tight, hot areas in the structure. Close the door to whatever room they are in and protect yourself. A quick tip: If a company claiming to do bat work shows up for an inspection without a ladder, be cautious. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. Bats are often persecuted due to the fact that most people have no understanding of bat ecology and the important role they play in controlling night-flying insects.

Female bats give birth to only one baby bat per year, and raise it well. We do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in. If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands. This is the final step in the exclusion process. In this group females give birth to one pup and take care of it until it can fly and fend for itself which takes several months. This time period also happens to be the time when we receive most bat calls, due to a couple factors. This will only escalate the situation and can cause more problems. This can involve vacuuming of droppings, insulation replacement, and fogging the attic with enzyme cleaner. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points.
