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. The first step usually requires an observation of the structure shortly after sunset to locate the entrance/exit holes. 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. 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. 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. It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air. 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. Pre-Sealing: The bats usually have several entry holes and gaps leading into the house.
