Jersey Village Texas Bat Removal From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Jersey Village
NEVER try to catch a bat with your bare hands! Unless you are 100% certain the bat in your home had no contact with anyone, bats found inside your home should be taken to your local health department for rabies testing. 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. Their fragile ability to reproduce and their importance to the ecosystem is why it’s important that these animals aren’t harmed senselessly and is the reason they are usually protected. While at your property, Jersey Village bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. If it was that easy to solve bat problems, I would not be working 70+ hours a week from April through October. 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. Plus you'd be breaking the law, but that's the least of your concerns, compared to potentially hundreds of stranded baby bats now crawling down your walls, into your house, and eventually dying and rotting & stinking. 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. But most of all, the traps that do exist are cumbersome and the bats don't enter them very well, so they result in failed jobs. 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. When exclusion work is to be done, observing the structure at dusk will give an indication as to the entry and exit points.

BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states.
They gather to mate before hibernating and the females store the sperm inside of their body until after hibernation.
