Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Caplen

Oddly enough, we have found many insurance companies will not cover the exclusion cost, but will cover the guano removal and clean-up program. 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. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people. While at your property, Caplen bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. They carry germs and diseases that are considered toxic to humans and allow the growth of fungus spores that can lead to serious lung problems. 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. Read more about bat guano, aka bat poop here. 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 may even accidentally find their way into your living quarters during the winter months.
