Atascocita Bat Removal

Bats are nocturnal creatures, so you’ll likely spot them flying around your home at night. It can be quite disturbing to see bats flying around your home if they are living in your attic, walls or leaving droppings. They can also transmit diseases such as bat guano, which could cause serious health problems to people.

Once you’ve confirmed a bat problem, it’s time to call for help from experts; if left untreated, these animals can cause serious damage and pose health risks. Although bats look harmless, their guano can be full of harmful spores. This infection can cause histoplasmosis. It is a condition that often causes flu-like symptoms and worsens over time. If you have any questions about bat control or handling of a bat problem, contact AAAC Wildlife Removal for information and assistance.

Bat Extermination vs. Bat Removal

Learning of bats in your home can be unnerving and your first instinct might be to call the nearest pest control available, However, killing bats is illegal in Texas. Bats are protected under Texas law, which means that they can’t be killed unless there’s a threat to human health or safety. So, it is important that a licensed and experienced bat removal company is consulted. This will ensure that the bats are safely and humanely removed from your home.

Bat Damage

Bat guano or urine can damage the structure of your house. It can lead to wood rot, and structural damage. It also causes stains on walls and ceilings, which can be unsightly. In addition, the weight of guano build up can also cause ceiling cave ins, which can lead to expensive repairs. This is why it’s important to deal with bat guano right away; the longer you wait, the more damage they’ll do to your home.

Bat Exclusion

The best method of bat removal in Atascocita is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. This is known as exclusion. It ensures that bats won’t return to your home after they have been removed from their existing roosting areas. Bat exclusion can be a complex process that requires a thorough inspection of all areas where bats may be entering your home.

These entry points could include vents, chimneys, gaps beneath garage doors, or under eaves. Even tiny holes as small as a quarter inch. After these areas have been identified by our bat specialist, we will take steps for sealing them off to prevent other bats from entering your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Bat removal from Atascocita homes is a complex task that requires expertise and attention to detail. Knowing how many bats are roosting in your Houston home is important. It is also crucial to identify the species of bats you have so you can safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has extensive experience with wild animals and is licensed to handle bat removals in Atascocita homes. Bats need to be removed by experienced professionals who know how best to handle them: they’re not like other pests that can just be swatted away or poisoned without consequence. AAAC Wildlife Removal is available to help you if you have a bat problem.

This is how we handle bat exclusions:

  • We spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points and then sealing them shut
  • We set up one-way doors so that bats can exit but not reenter the building
  • Double check that all bats are excluded and out of your home
  • We then seal all entry points with steel wool or mesh screens to prevent re-entry
  • After this, we go through and do a thorough clean-up of any guano left in the attic or walls.
  • Proceed with replacement of soiled insulation.
  • Repair of wildlife damage, both inside and outside of the home.

First, we spend a lot of time looking for entry points to bats. To prevent future infestations, it is important to ensure that there are no other entry points. The next step involves the installation of one-way doors to allow the bats out, but not back in again – this is a safe and humane method of removing the bats from your house without harming them.

We then double check that all bats are out of your home to prevent accidental contact with any bat that may have been missed. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next, clean up with professional-grade cleaners and sanitizers any fecal matter left behind by bats in your insulation and floor. We will go to great lengths in order to make sure your home is free from odors or guano. Fogging with enzyme cleaner is also done after the insulation has been removed to make sure every nook and cranny is disinfected.

Once attic is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, we look at wildlife damage. To make your house look new again, we’ll repair any damage they might have caused.
