Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Cypress

You may see staining around areas a bat can use to enter your home. 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. During the spring, summer, and early fall we often schedule inspections in the afternoon or evening. While at your property, Cypress bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. 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. 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. Appropriate treatment has to be given to the person bitten by bats or any animals that might carry the rabies virus. 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.  This will help you know how they are getting in and you can use this knowledge when it comes time to exclude them. 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. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind.

Sometimes people will hear them rustling and fluttering above the ceiling or in the walls. When they hibernate they seek a cave that doesn’t dip below forty degrees Fahrenheit and in southern, warm climates they may not hibernate at all. Even though all warm-blooded mammals can carry rabies, for some reason there are different strains, and humans aren't susceptible to many of them. Simple in concept, but very hard to get right! And it is crucial that it is done perfectly, or you'll have a big problem on your hands. Even more critical is the important role bats play in the environment and ecosystems. There are quite a few different species of bats in North America; however the ones that are known for colonizing are the species that most often cause problems. This will help you know how they are getting in and you can use this knowledge when it comes time to exclude them. The problems associated with a large number of dead animals in a structure can be serious, so waiting until the young bats can fly is the sensible method. All of these bats often roost in man-made buildings, and love the attics of homes. Every building is different, and the bats relate to the architecture in very specific ways that require selecting the proper device(s). Most people do not tolerate that idea very well, and it becomes necessary to evict the bats and repair the structure as needed to prevent them from entering in the future.
