Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Lakeside Wildlife Removal Tip: Should You Ever Trap A Bat In A Cage?

When it comes to dealing with bats, trapping them in a cage is not a trusted solution. Indeed, there is no professional trapping procedure for bats that can be used by frustrated homeowners. So, the time when bats start creating roosts in the human premises, people start searching for some practical solutions to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Actually, the true fact is that even if you call professionals from animal removal company, they will also not trap the bats because as per state laws it is an illegal and inhumane way to treat with infestation issue. Even if you plan a humane way to trap them, it will not be executed safely, because bats cannot sit calm in the cage. These fragile creatures will become panic so soon and will end up causing injury to their own body. Or they may get aggressive to bite your fingers when you touch the cage to relocate it. Also, they have high metabolism rate so if you keep them in a cage so long; they may start starving with loss of energy and water or in the worst case, they may die soon. Even if you somehow become successful in trapping them and trying to release them at a far distance, these insane creatures will return within very less time even from hundreds of miles. But don't get nervous, there are few other methods that you can think of using to keep your living space safe from bat attacks.

In case if you are in trouble due to bat infestation and want to find some trusted method to get rid of these creatures, we advise you to follow exclusion process. It is the only proven method to get rid of bats in human habitat. In order to execute the exclusion process, first, you need to determine how big colony of bats exists in your premises. In case if they are all adult bats and move out for food search during night hours, you can easily become successful with your exclusion method, but in case if these bats have small babies in the colonies, you may have to wait for few months to become them able to come out. After birth, the babies are completely dependent on mothers for food and care. If you exclude mothers out, the babies may die inside without food, and their dead body will soon start releasing terrible odor in your premises. Hence, professionals advise using exclusion methods either before the mating or breeding season of bats or right after their babies become able to fly.

Note that, bats need very tiny holes or cracks to enter your home. So, in order to ensure complete relief from these terrible creatures, you need to do a very careful inspection before executing the exclusion method. All points must be properly sealed to keep them away forever. Also, prefer to use some good quality repellents and deterrents after installing funnels or netting arrangements. They may help you to scare bats away when they try to return to their old home. It is the best way to force the bats automatically to leave the premises.
