Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Cypress

It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. 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. They may make several trips per night. 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. Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time. 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. Generally bats are going to enter a home near the roof or attic. 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 do not use any type of traps, as bats can die from stress while in traps and relocation efforts are not successful. 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. Bat colonies want to roost in a safe place - a cave, for example.

The young are born in late April - early June depending on species, and the young are growing and flightless until some time in August. Though in very few cases symptoms are seen immediately, in many instances it is not recognizable for even months. These cases usually result in death. Bat excrement can be harmful to your health. The first reaction is to immediately seal all the holes on the structure. They are all insectivorous, catching insects on the wing.

Bats are very important for the environment because they eat a lot of insects.

Remember, it's not like I prefer to be working in the middle of the night! It's just that it helps get the job done perfectly, and perfection is required. On many structures we will perform much of the sealing and repairs (secondary gaps and holes) before the exclusion season begins.

The cost for bat-proofing varies greatly depending on the combination of the previous factors. What about the lights, sounds and sound emitting devices you can find on the market? There are many different types of electrical devices being sold as bat repellents and the truth to this is that they are generally ineffective as well.
