What do I do if I find bats in my house?
If you find a bat in your house of in your bedroom, the first thing you need to do is call 936-707-5579 and tell me about the bat infestation problem you are having so I can advise you on what to do to eradicate and remove bats from your house. The secret to getting rid of any bat problem in a home like bats in the walls or bats in the attic is first solved by a detailed bat inspection and having a bat exclusion performed. If you simply get rid of the bats in the attic and fail to CORRECTLY seal up your home, you will end up with the same bats in your home or end up with a new bat colony. Bat extermination is not the answer! Bats are Protected! There is no such thing as a “legal” bat exterminator. We don’t trap or relocate bats unless at the request of the local authorities for disease testing. The correct way to control them is by removing the bats and bat proofing the house.
Bat Exclusions Seal Up Attics and Keep Bats Out!
Bats in Lufkin, Center, Nacogdoches, Texarkana, Flint, Dallas, Garland and Longview TX spend over half of their lives roosting so where and why bats roost is important to understand our many diverse bat species we have in East Texas. Do you blame them for just loving Lake Cherokee, Lake Palestine and Wright Patman Lake? They offer plenty of water, mosquitoes and beautiful homes for shelter! Bats are regularly found in hollow trees, caves, under bridges, vacant buildings and around the attic eave vents of homes. Bats require a safe roosting location away from predators and severe weather including extreme high and low temperatures. The bat roost always becomes a communication place between bats and where a bat colony would live together to raise their young bat pups, rest, digest their food and hibernate together. Main Diseases the bats are facing are White Nose Syndrome and rabies. White Nose Syndrome is typically a cave dweller disease but it seems to be moving across the country and migrating. It is the worse news for bat health in years.
Why Are Bats In My Attic?
Bats need a place to live and are important to our environment. Imagine the last time you bought a house. You drove around and looked at several houses, right. Any of them could have provided you with shelter, but you picked the one you bought because you liked it. It not only provided adequate shelter, but you liked the surroundings and the way it felt. It had adequate ventilation, the temperature was just right, you didn’t feel threatened so you felt safe there; so you bought it and moved in to set up housekeeping. The same goes for bat colonies. They look around, find a place that is safe and comfortable, it is close to water and food, the “front door” was open so they moved in. What they missed doing is paying the mortgage. Since you are the one paying the mortgage, you need to move the bats out of YOUR attic. There are plenty of placed for bats to roost in NATURE so you don’t need to feel bad for them. They will adapt and survive. Bats have both day and night roosting places. The day roosting place is for extended rest periods and the night roosting places are used for brief resting while eating. Over the course of a night bats may rest more than once at different roosting locations. Some bat species use their night roosts to hunt for prey and in tropical regions bats species may use them to call potential mates. Bats may change roosts daily when threatened by predators or have different summer (ie: homes or attics) and winter roosting locations (caves). Bat roosts are chosen because of favorable protection against wind, temperature and moisture amounts in the roosting area. A variety of older buildings such as one would find in Town Square in Center TX or attics in Lufkin and Nacogdoches Texas offers bats an almost unlimited roosting area. It is close to water and with the lights around the square attracting insects, it offers plenty of food on the menu! An area like this would be a great place to position several bat boxes in the courtyard to provide alternate roosting places for the bats and still be able to enjoy the benifits of having bats around the area but not inside the buildings. If you have a bat problem in your home and are ready to reclaim the property that is rightfully yours, call me today to discuss a bat removal/bat control plan that will fit your needs.
