Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Clear Lake Shores

Second, I want to make it clear that the and only legal, the only humane, and by far the most effective, way to remove bats from an attic is with a live exclusion. 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. The bats may fall through a damaged ceiling and a child accidently come into contact with one, unknowingly becoming infected with the deadly disease. While at your property, Clear Lake Shores bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. So if you seal at night, you will be sealing some in. 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 first night after a homeowner closes all access holes becomes quite a memorable experience, as the bats usually find their way into the living quarters as they desperately seek a way out of the structure. 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 young bats would die without their mothers, and an attic full of dead animals is much worse than having the bats roosting there. 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 they head for water and get a drink, skimming the surface on the wing.

Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. With a large colony of bats, this really adds up. If bats find your home favorable to them as a roosting site, they are already in there. If they are not able to find their way into your living quarters, they die in the attic. They will however come back year after year to roost and raise their young. The Little Browns only weigh about 3 to 4/10ths of an ounce, and are only 3 to 3. It's not easy to get right, but it's vital to get it perfect. Maternal colonies choose caves to deliver their young because they want shelter and safety from predators. This means that during the daylight hours it will do what it can to avoid any place in your home where the light is shining. But in the average case, there is enough to corrode wood and drywall, and to grow mold. They are able to locate very small openings into homes and buildings, and it seems churches are one of their favorites.

The bats may fall through a damaged ceiling and a child accidently come into contact with one, unknowingly becoming infected with the deadly disease. If the guano has contaminated the insulation you’ll need to replace this. 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. Any attempt to trap or kill the bats will only result in a failed job and frustration, (not to mention it's illegal to attempt), so never attempt anything but a proper live exclusion during the non-maternity season. 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. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion! Some bats will come out of hibernation a couple times during the winter to rehydrate, as they may sometimes be seen flying outdoors in December through February. These colonies are composed primarily of females. We added a towable boom lift to our equipment in December of 2003. On the left, you can see a group of bats swirling inside a house. They only give birth to one baby and this usually takes place in late spring.

How Do You Get Bats Out of the Attic? - The best tool is education. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins. For example, many raccoons are rabid, but they don't pass the rabies on to humans. There are about 45 species of bats in the US, but only colonizing bats live in attics. The real challenge is meticulous work, and not missing a single tiny area. 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. Bat exclusion measures should not be performed from mid-May through early-August, as there may be young bats in the colony that are still unable to fly. Hibernating bats may respond to a sudden warm-up in outside temperature, which may be a false signal that spring is near. The maternity colony will grow with each passing season and before you know it you could have a colony ranking in the hundreds. It is very common for bats to find their way into the living quarters of homes, usually during warmer summer temperatures when we use our air conditioning. It's often easy to spot where they are going in and out, because they leave brown staining from the grease and oil in their fur, at the entry point.
