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. 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. Bats may look harmless, but their guano is full of dangerous spores that can lead to histoplasmosis – an infection which often leads to flu-like symptoms at first with more severe respiratory issues later on down the road. 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. 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 bats are removed safely and humanely 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 also causes stains on walls and ceilings, which can be unsightly. Ceiling cave-ins can be caused by guano buildup, which can result in costly 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

Bat removal Missouri City is best done by sealing up any entry points that bats may be using. 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 is quite a thorough process which requires an inspection of the exterior and interior areas where bats might be getting in.

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

Bat removal from Missouri City homes is a complex task that requires expertise and attention to detail. 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 years of experience dealing with all sorts of wild animals, and we are fully licensed to remove bats in Missouri City homes. Bats should be handled by professionals who are experienced in dealing with them. They are not like other pests that can be killed or swatted away without consequences. 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. 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.

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 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. To make your house look new again, we’ll repair any damage they might have caused.

Dangers of DIY Bat Removal

Bats are known to be carriers of deadly viruses such as rabies and leptospirosis. Their guano can also be toxic and infect people with histoplasmosis.

Histoplasmosis is the most common disease (besides rabies) associated with bats and can be fatal if contracted by people – especially those with compromised immune systems – which includes young children, elderly people, and pregnant women. One should never attempt to remove bats from on their own because of this reason.

FAQs

Are bats protected in the great State of Texas?

Yes. Bats are protected by Texas state laws as well as federal laws. According to the Texas parks and wildlife code, It is illegal to kill any species of bat without a permit unless it is an imminent threat to human health and safety. They can, however, be removed from a home or building.

What is guano?

Guano is bat faeces, or droppings. These droppings can cause Histoplasmosis, a disease that is caused by breathing in dried guano dust. Ceilings can be stained if bats have lived there for a while.

Is guano harmful?

Yes. Yes. If left untreated, histoplasmosis can lead to death from breathing in dust made up of dried bat feces. It is not advised to remove them yourself as you could contract the disease.

Is it safe for me to remove bats?

Most people will try removing these creatures themselves due to cost – please don’t do this as it’s incredibly dangerous; bats are known carriers of rabies and other zoonotic diseases(human transferable). It’s not worth the risk to try and remove them on your own as the health risks are too great. Also, one must remember that one does need permits for handling these animals for any kind of relocation. It is better to have a professional do the job than attempt it yourself. The time required is much less than the medical costs and other costs associated with bat-related diseases.
