Waco 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 Waco.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Waco 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 Waco 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 254-534-6170, 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 Waco 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, We live in an old two -story house (approx. 1200SF) in the countrynear Waco TX. Original structure built in late 1800's, with several additions up to about 1960. We have lived here about 20 years. Apparently when the old wooden siding became too weathered, former owners added insulated panel siding on top of the wooden siding. The house was really looking tacky, it was drafty, and had drafty windows, so after the extreme cold last winter we decided to install new windows, strip off all the old siding down to the studs, then put in batt insulation and OSB sheeting. We did not get the vinyl siding on last fall, so are planning on putting it on this spring. There are three 'separate' attics in the various additions (all are fairly small) and we know we have bats overwintering in at least one of those attics. Probably for many years. The questions: Should we cut exit holes (for exclusion netting) in the gables of all the attics? or just the one we know that has bats? When should we cut the holes and install the netting? How long should the netting hang below the exit holes? We do want to install a few gable attic vents anyway, so the exit holes can be used later for that. Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your site. I thought it was very helpful. My question: could i prevent bats in my attic by leaving lights on all night? I have been doing this since August. It appears to be working because I do not see droppings. Will this work in the long run and can I stop putting on the lights in the winter (I live in Waco TX- but it's cold!).
