If you're having a problem with bats, most likely your property is located within a narrow but long migratory flight path. Some structures have bats year-round, some only seasonally as bats migrate. There is a good probability that once bats find your structure, they will stay or at least return there often.
Bats are generally beneficial because they eat insects such as mosquitoes; however, their odor, noise, fecal droppings, and staining pose significant problems in human occupied structures. Plus, no matter how beneficial they are, most people fear them immensely. In rare cases, bats can carry rabies and can transmit them to humans by contact. Additionally, their droppings (guano) can pose respiratory health risks, especially in large amounts and in confined spaces.
Texas Bird Services avoids physical contact with all bats, both for their safety and for ours. Typically we will locate all crevices and voids where bats reside or will reside, then we will wait for them to leave at night and permanently seal up the areas. Sometimes we will need to help them leave by using noise, vibration, air and lights, but no contact is made and no harm is done to them during the bat removal process. In some other cases, a one-way exit device is used for several nights so that when bats leave, they are not able to return. In any case, bats simply continue their migration or relocate. Texas Bird Services then removes the bat guano and implements a full-scale clean-up and deodorization of the areas.
