Dallas 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 Dallas.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Dallas 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 Dallas 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 214-504-3587, 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 Dallas 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 my name is bethany you can email me back. So here's the deal. we live in a old farm house in Plano TX. we have added an addition a few years ago. we used to get maybe two bats a year. now we get one bat EVERY night! so we went looking to see if we could figure it out on where they were getting in. we know they were getting in two places and completely closed that off. but they keep coming in every night. I'm very afraid of them. but my dad catches them in a collapsible hamper and then sets them free out side. but they keep coming every night i wake up to the flutter of their wings and i get VERY scared of them. if you can help my family is at a very critical point. with gas and all we don't want to pay some body to come and try to do it. we were wondering if you have had experience like this and what they did. its to the point where tonight i will not be sleeping in my room anymore. please help us. much appreciated! love bethany

Dear David, I don't want to waste your time and this isn't a joke, but I have a bat problem in Dallas TX. I am the director of a Christian medical mission organization based in the USA, but we have a guesthouse that we use for short term medical mission teams which is in the Amazon Jungle. At this time, the house is used infrequently (3 -5 times per year for a week or 2) to house short term mission teams. We have had the roof removed twice to remove bats and guano. Local resources only know to put down naphthalene and cypermethrin... in other words, mothballs and insecticide... which I'm sure you know doesn't work. I am not an expert, but in researching this problem, I have learned this much. I'm wondering if you've ever had a desire to join a short-term mission team or know someone in your profession who might like to use their specialized skills for missions? I realize this is an unusual "cold-call" and if you are not interested, no need to reply, but if you think you might be able to help or know someone who might, I'd be interested to learn more and my contact information is below. Blessings, Lisa

My response: Depending on the architecture, it may not be hard to do the job yourself. Just get some netting, and drape it over all the open holes in the roof. Staple it in, or glue it, etc. Make sure you don't trap any bats inside - I often do such work at night.
