Bats are night-flying creatures so they will likely be visible 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

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 or urine can damage the structure of your house. It can lead to wood rot, and 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 Montgomery is to seal up any areas that the bats might be using as entry points. This process is called exclusion and it ensures that no more bats will come into your home once they’ve been removed from their current roosting spots. 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

Bat removal from Montgomery 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 extensive experience with wild animals and is licensed to handle bat removals in Montgomery 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. 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. After insulation is removed, it is necessary to fog with enzyme cleaner in order to disinfect every corner.

After the attic has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected we can begin to 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 are known reservoirs of deadly viruses like rabies, leptospirosis, Tioman virus, Nipah Virus and corona virus among others. Their guano can also be toxic and infect people 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.
