During these months the bats in your attic are either delivering their baby or taking care of the flightless pup. 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. Call or e-mail for a current inspection fee for your structure (please include city & state so we can figure distance to site) 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. There are several ways to get rid of bats in an attic. 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. We can arrange our schedule and also pick up all the necessary materials for each job in advance. 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.  We also have a driveable scissors lift with a 24-foot deck height. 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. They mate in the fall, but delay fertilization, and one pup is born in early June, and can fly about eight weeks later.

One of the easiest ways to tell if you have bats is hearing their scraping, rustling or squeaking. 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. One of the easiest ways to tell if you have bats is hearing their scraping, rustling or squeaking. Can't I just seal the entry holes shut at night when the bats are 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. The bat exclusion process requires several steps. Some structures may require high-lifts or other equipment to perform a bat exclusion and bat-proofing. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example. First of all, wear protective gear. These are usually one-day "awakenings" to get a drink. Bats sleep during the daylight, which makes it easier to find them.

In these cases you should treat the removal in much the same way as if they were in your attic. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal. They fly out at dusk, and fly back at dawn. Our warranty included with total bat-proofing would apply in the event that bats locate another entry hole and return into the attic or roost area. 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. Never seal your home without performing an exclusion! Bats actually don’t need much space to enter your home. Working in the wildlife control business has allowed me to see this first hand. If you mess it up, you've got a big problem on your hands. 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.

You might think this is silly or counter-intuitive, but again, I've done hundreds of bat jobs, and I've learned that the work is more effective this way. These spaces can be found in siding, under roof shingles, near paneling, near attic fans and by soffits. Often they pick locations near water sources so the insects they feed on are plentiful and so they don’t have to travel far for water. As I said, I trained for many years and did dozens of jobs before I got good at it. We spend an evening watching all sides of the structure to locate the primary exit points. In very small amounts it's not a huge deal. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing. Bats are not blind, and they do not intentionally get tangled in your hair. One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. Many homeowners are installing bat houses on their property to provide a natural method of insect control and reduce the need for pesticides. Never seal a primary entry/exit spot before an exclusion.
