Bat Trapping: How To Trap a Bat
There are several types of Stamford animal control traps to catch a bat. Some of them are proved to be effective and humane – others not so much.
We will discuss these methods and their necessity here.
Some Stamford pest control people use boxes, cage traps and nets to catch bats. People catch bats when they come out from their shelters and then
the bats are trapped in nets or containers. It creates a problem of how to release those bats into the wildness and how not
to hurt them. Bats are secured species and they cannot be killed or injured. It is very hard not to injure them as they have
very sensitive wings. Also, if you will find a way to release bats without injuring, another Stamford wildlife removal problem will occur. Bats sense
their roosts from five hundred miles so it is very likely that they will come back.
To trap bats, people are also using glued traps. Glued surfaces like cardboard, plastic sheets and wooden pallets are used.
Glued pads are installed on the floors or walls. Once glued, a bat cannot move and if not rescued dies from the lack of food
and water. This method is highly inhumane and in most states illegal as killing bats is forbidden.
Another way of trapping a bat is using a body-gripping trap. It kills the bat in a second with a strong mechanical blow. Even
though, the bat will not be suffering for a long time, it is very inhumane way to kill any mammal and again one should remember
that in most states it is illegal to kill bats.
Stores may suggest more products for catching bats. They usually work in a similar Stamford animal trapping way: allures bat to enter and it shuts the
mammal in. However, these kinds of traps would catch around 40 bats in one time, while most probably there are hundreds of bats
in your house. So, it is important to know how will you act and where will you release the bats.
All in all, trapping bats is time consuming, expensive and not entirely effective. As already known, bats are protected species
and killing them in most of the states is illegal. One should also remember that bats are very easily injured. There are other
ways to keep the premises protected from bats invasions. Using netting, funneling and sealing of the entrances of the house is
known to be effective Stamford exterminator ways in getting rid of the bats.
