Bat Control and Removal

Bat Control and Removal

Breeding season for bats begins in early spring. During this time, bats will look for places to nest and have their babies. Often time, attic or chimney spaces in your home can be the perfect spot for bats to call home. However, it is not the ideal spot for homeowners. When considering Houston bat control and removal services, it is important to note that bats and federally protected and so the Texas Parks and Wildlife has restrictions for bat removal. It is required that service technicians or homeowners get special exemptions. For this reason, it is vital that you call Masters Services for immediate bat control and removal in Houston as soon as you suspect you have a bat colony somewhere in your home. Should a bat colony have already set up residence and began to breed, it is necessary for experienced wildlife technicians to seal up the area where the bats are located until they can be properly removed so that they won’t spread to other parts of the house. Taking the necessary precautions is important to protecting your home from bat infestation.

How Did a Bat Get Inside My Home?

Bats are nocturnal animals that are relatively inactive during the day when humans would notice. However, once winter comes, bats seek shelter wherever they can find it, including inside attics and chimneys. They are masters at squeezing into any small opening in order to find a warm place to roost. They can even squeeze into openings that are only a quarter of an inch in diameter. Vents, window cracks, and even pipes that lead inside give bats a way into the home. Masters Services, the professional Houston bat control and removal company, has years of expertise finding ways into your home and sealing them up to prevent a bat infestation.

What Are the Potential Threats of Bats In the Home?

While bats are quite helpful creatures that will eat bugs such as mosquitoes, they can also carry bacteria and diseases that are harmful to humans. This is the primary reason why it is not safe to have bats flying about inside the home. Although bats rarely bit unless threatened, they are still carriers of rabies, which is a risk homeowners don’t want to take. Furthermore, histoplasmosis is a fungus for which bat feces can act as a catalyst. When humans inhale the spores, they can become infected. Bats are also carriers of other unwanted pests such as fleas, mites, and ticks. While bats outside the home can be a positive thing, inside the home is another story. Masters Services understands this and works hard on your behalf for bat control and removal in Houston.
