Bat Trapping and Removal Companies in Cypress

Sometimes the bats that enter the home are young ones trying to find their way outside for the first time. 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 is not unusual for a bat to accidentally get into your home. 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. Pay particular attention to the roof lines - fascia boards, gable vents, dormer peaks, soffit eave gaps, etc. 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. It's a very challenging scenario, but one that I have solved dozens of times. 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.  Bats aren’t like rodents. 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. Bats are extremely beneficial for insect control, as they offer an environmentally friendly method of insect control instead of using poisons and chemicals.

Many people seem to think that all bats have rabies. Most homeowners policies will not cover any rodent damage or removal, but since bats are not rodents contacting your agent prior to an exclusion is suggested. Though they are not blind, their eyesight is very limited especially since they are creatures of the night. The piles of urine and feces can contaminate insulation, rot wood and ruin ceilings. In truth, none of these repellents will help rid your attic of a bat colony. The presence of bats in your attic is a big enough inconvenience, but when you have a bat problem, it’s not just their presence that you need to worry about. If bat houses are installed before the exclusion, there is a chance they may start using the bat houses after the exclusion devices are installed. They hibernate from late fall (Oct/Nov) until spring arrives (Mar/Apr). 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. It may be wise to arrange for an inspection in the spring. At no time is 100% of the colony out at once.

The presence of bats in your attic is a big enough inconvenience, but when you have a bat problem, it’s not just their presence that you need to worry about. Many people seem to think that all bats have rabies. A light mist of an enzyme-based microbial solvent will help keep the fungal spores from going airborne. In central Illinois, young bats are present in nursery colonies from early May through early August. As said before, guano can carry histoplasmosis spores which are very dangerous to your health when breathed in.

Bats sleep by hanging from their feet above the ground below. You can guess how pleasant that becomes after a week or so. Gaps under doors leading to attics and closets are common entry points. This protects you from getting sick from anything from the creature. The most common species in North America that people may find in a colony on their property are the Little Brown Bat and the Mexican Free-tailed bat. Instead bats are more closely related to primates and shrews. It is absolutely critical this isn’t done during between May and the end of August. Like any other wild animal, bats should never be handled at any time, especially when found on the ground or in a home. It is the absolute worst thing you can do, but unfortunately the most common step that is taken.
