Corpus Christi Bat Removal

Not all wildlife removal companies are the same. Some have experience with bat removal projects, and are familiar with the proper methods for bat exclusion. But others use incorrect techniques, such as bat traps, summer exclusions, or worse, fumigants. Do your research before you hire someone! I personally recommend our field technician for bat control in Corpus Christi.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Corpus Christi for many years, and he abides by these bat removal principles:

  • Always perform a proper live exclusion.
  • Never use poisons or fumigants or kill bats.
  • Never use traps or attempt to relocate bats.
  • Never do a removal during the maternity season.
  • Seal all entry points shut with guarantee.
  • Offer attic cleanup and decontamination.
  • Properly Texas licensed and insured.
As I discuss repeatedly on this website, bat removal projects are not easy, and not for amateurs. I have seen many horrible attempts at bat colony removal throughout the years, done both by do-it-yourself homeowners and by incompetent companies. Never hire a Corpus Christi pest control company that uses poisons for rodent or insect control. They often attempt the same approach for bats. Not only is this incredibly destructive and illegal in Texas, but it results in disaster for the homeowner, and does not actually solve the problem. It's very important that the removal of bats from the attic of your home is done in the correct manner, and there is only one correct way, with a live bat exclusion. To read more about this process, read my bats in the attic home page.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 361-356-3717, talk to them, and make sure that they understand what they are doing, and that they have experience. Be sure that they do abide by the principles I outlined above. This is not just for the sake of the bats - I'm no tree hugger - it's for the sake of doing the job correctly, for you and your property. The fact that it's good for the bats as well is a lucky coincidence. And really, bats are good animals, which I'm sure you realize. I hope you have a good experience with your Corpus Christi bat control project. You can email me personally if you have any problems with our tech, and I will talk to him, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

Hi David, My name is Merete and I live in the UK. About 6 years ago, my husband and I built our dream house on Padre Island. It has a tiled roof and a terrace facing east, partly shaded by a ca. 12 foot roof extension 'overhang'. Underneath the tiles is quite a lot of insulation material put there to mitigate the effect of the hot Mediterranean sun. We have been aware for some time that bats have taken up residence in the overhang, or at least, that is where they enter/exit. Occasionally, we have had them fluttering around inside as well. Until now it hasn't been too much of a problem, but in the last year their number, judging by the amount of droppings they leave, has grown alarmingly. When we get out there in the morning, we now have to hose down the whole terrace area, which is large, about 15 x 40 foot, as the droppings cover table, chairs, under foot etc. Not exactly appetising to have to crunch your way to the s*** covered table and chairs to have your breakfast! Basically, it requires a daily power-hosing down. This is quite untenable, and we would welcome any suggestion as to how we may deal with that. Here's hoping you can come up with something..... Regards, Merete

The best option is to seal the entry holes shut after the bats are out due to seasonal migration (or out at night), but if that is not possible, you may have to install netting over the entire area. It can be done to look very unobtrusive.
