Friendswood Texas Bat Extermination From Attics By The Critter Squad
Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Friendswood
How Can You Tell Bats Are In Your Attic? 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. It's hard to get bats to live in a bat house. While at your property, Friendswood bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. 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 inspect the building/home which allows us to provide a quote for the exclusion and bat-proofing. 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 time period also happens to be the time when we receive most bat calls, due to a couple factors. 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. Another way to tell if you have a bat problem in a building is to look for signs of guano on the outside of a home.

They fly out at dusk, and fly back at dawn.
Until an exclusion can be performed, the problem of bats entering the living quarters can be solved or minimized by sealing all holes and cracks leading from the attic into your living areas.
It’s good to keep the guano damp so less of the spores drift into the air.
One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found.
Many of the southern bats migrate to different areas as climates change.
It's not easy to get right, but it's vital to get it perfect.

An attic is sort of like a cave - but even better, because it's protected from predators, and high off the ground, making entry and exit easy.
HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch.
Young are born in June, and can fly by August.
They are about 4.
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.
It is totally optional, but we often suggest installing a bat house near the site where they are currently roosting.
They can leave millions of droppings (guano) all over your attic.
The only good way to get rid of bats in your attic is to perform exclusion.
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.
These bats will form huge colonies, up to several million members in some cases.
Once you have spent the time confirming bats are in your home you’ll want to look for ways they are getting in.
I myself trained for two years with a bat removal expert before I started my own bat removal jobs, and even then, I had a lot to learn.
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.
Bats only become a problem when they decide to use an attic or other section of a home or building for a roosting or nursery colony.
They sleep in roosts during the daytime, and emerge at dusk.
Though it's unlikely, this mold can cause health problems for people, so I must mention it.
Another factor is the high concentration of bats present in a nursery colony during that period.
The cost for bat-proofing varies greatly depending on the combination of the previous factors.
The bats most commonly found using homes for roosts are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat.
You don't want to kill a beneficial bat anyway.

Inspection: You have to find out how the bats are getting in and out of the building, where they are living, what species they are, and what damage they have caused.
They have to discover and adopt it on their own, and some bat houses lay dormant for many years.
