Bats are nocturnal creatures, so you’ll likely spot them flying around your home at night. If there’s a colony living in your attic or walls and leaving droppings behind, it can be pretty disturbing to see them flying around your house. Plus, they carry diseases that could potentially hurt people and spread through their waste products, like bat guano.

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

It can be frightening to discover bats living in your home. Your first instinct may be to call the pest control company. However, Texas law prohibits killing bats. Texas law protects bats. They can’t be killed unless they pose a danger to human health and safety. It is essential that you consult a licensed bat removal company. This will ensure that the bats are safely and humanely removed from your home.

Bat Damage

Bat guano and urine can compromise the integrity of your house’s structure – It can cause wood rot and lead to structural damage. It can also cause stains on ceilings and walls, which can be very unsightly. In addition, the weight of guano build up can also cause ceiling cave ins, which can lead to expensive repairs. It is important to get rid of bat guano as soon as possible. The longer they wait, the more damage they will do to your home.

Bat Exclusion

The best method of bat removal in Kingwood 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 may include chimneys, vents, gaps under garage doors or beneath eaves, even holes as tiny as a half inch. Once these locations have been identified by our bat removal specialist we will take steps to ensure that they are sealed off so no other bats can get inside your home.

Removing Bats in the Attic

Removing bats from Kingwood homes requires attention to detail and expertise. It’s important to know how much damage is being caused by the bats roosting in your attic and just as crucial, knowing what species of bat you’re dealing with so that you know how to safely and humanely remove them.

Our team has extensive experience with wild animals and is licensed to handle bat removals in Kingwood 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.

The first step we take is to spend a great deal of time identifying bat entry points. Ensuring that there aren’t any other points of entry is essential to prevent future infestations. Next, you will need to install one-way doors that allow bats to exit your home but not return in. This is a humane and safe way to get rid of bats.

To prevent any accidental contact with bats, we double-check that all bats have left your home. We seal all entrance points with steel wool and mesh screens to stop bats from entering again.

Next is to do a thorough clean-up using professional grade cleaners and sanitizers for any fecal matters left behind by the bats in your home’s floor and insulation. We go through great lengths to ensure that your home is free of any odors and 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. We’ll fix any damage they may have done inside or outside of your home to make your house look like new again.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are are known reservoirs of deadly viruses like rabies, leptospirosis, Tioman virus, Nipah Virus and corona virus among others. Their guano is also toxic and can infect humans with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis, which is more common than rabies, can be fatal to bat-related diseases. It’s especially dangerous for people with compromised immune systems, such as young children, the elderly, and pregnant women. This is why it is not recommended to attempt to remove bats by yourself.
