Arlington Bat Email:

Good afternoon, I recently moved in with a friend who purchased an old house in east side Arlington TX. We have already had two nights (out of 4 nights we've stayed there) with a bat flying around the house. I woke up this morning at 1:00am to a bat flying around and making noises in my bedroom. We talked to the neighbors this morning and they mentioned that it has happened a few times to the previous home owners also. I was just wondering if you could ballpark a figure of how much it would cost for you guys to get rid of and bat-proof the house? I know this is pretty vague but it is a smaller duplex house with an upper unit (no attic) and we need Fort Worth bat removal services. Thank you! Thomas

We have a 3 story queen Anne Victorian home in Fort Worth Texas. We have always had a bat now and then but lately we seem to have problems every night. The evidence shows up in the morning. And it seems to be getting worse every night. We have pocket doors in every room on the first floor. We have tried the water in the bucket trick now for a week and no success. We have to keep all the bedroom doors closed as we have an open stair way. We need to know what to do. We have 4 chimneys that have bird screens on them but I suppose the small bat might be getting in there. I have a friend whose home has bat guano seeping through the eaves into the house. He believes the attic is full (between roof and ceiling) with bat guano. His house is in Sherman PA, near the NY border. Do you have any info about who he could call in the area to assess abatement possibilities? Thanks for any assistance with names or solutions. Donita

Arlington Texas Bat prevention tips:
Bats end up residing in one’s house due to many reasons. May be one has left his door open for them to enter or a window of the house was open or 90% of the chances are that they end up entering from the small gaps in the building structure. They reside in areas such as chimneys, vents, attics or wall etc. After sometime they might end up crawling into the living area of the house. The reason of it crawling there might be it feeling trapped inside the house and wants to leave the place. So it keeps on flying fast in circles and then rest for a while and repeats the action. One can leave a window open so that bat can leave through that one when it realizes that it is open. The same thing can be done with the door. Secondly other option could be one capturing the bat with a butterfly net and releasing it outside the house. Same thing can be applied with the jar. Capture it in it and then release it outside the house. Blanked can also be used for this purpose that is capturing and releasing it. Now this is a solution when bats end up entering the house. One should take prevention tips in the first place for not letting it enter the house.

House
Now the question is how one can keep the bats away from the house when they are commonly found in the neighborhood. One starts with checking the whole structure of the building for any gaps as small as 3/8 inch. Before bats can easily squeeze into this gap and ends up residing in that area. So through inspection of the structure is the first step to eliminate the threat of bats residing in the house. Once you have checked all the places especially the roof and its bricks chimney or the attic for that matter start filling the gaps with the simple caulk. One can also use hardening foam for filling the gaps in the structure. Because both of the materials are good for the job, that is sealing the gaps properly so that no bats end up residing in the house through these gaps. Netting the areas also helps in preventing the bats to enter the place.

Pool
One can only prevent bats from the pool is by installing a screened in enclosure. The screen around the pool will help in preventing the bats to enter the pool. Otherwise there is no other solution for this Arlington TX bat control problem.

Porch
If one sees a flying bat near the porch one should straight away check for bat colony in the porch or they should completely survey the building for bats colony. The colony might be residing in the walls or in the attic of the building. Bats are not a favored by majority of the people so they despise the idea of them being around in their houses. So if one finds the colony in the house trap it with the help of a professional and remove it from there.

Repellents
There are two types of repellents to prevents bats from entering ones house, commercial and natural repellents. The commercial repellents are available in the main store of the residing areas. But problem with these repellents is that they might not work all the time so a bat might leave the place for a while and then come back again to reside there. Naphthalene is also used as a repellent for bats and surveys on it has shown better results as compared to others commercially available repellents. One has to use a specific amount of this in order to make the bats stay away from the house the hindrance with this would be that the amount also becomes dangerous for human too. Since its smell is strong and that causing the bats to stay away when a person enters that close space where it is being used he or she ends up getting exposed to it so the individual needs to be cautious about this problem while using this technique to keep the bats away.

Bright light
If one places a bright light at the entry points of the bats they work as repellents for them and thus keep them away from residing in that area may it be the attic or the house. The problem with this is it ends up attracting other insects such as mosquitoes. One should keep this is mind while going for this kind of measures to keep the bats away from the building.

Natural repellents
There are no natural repellents for Fort Worth bat control that can keep the bats away from your structure so one needs to rely on the commercial ones available at hand.
