Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Fort Worth 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 Fort Worth 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 817-945-3371, 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 Fort Worth 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!

I'm so glad you posted your expert advice on bats. I wish you lived in my area so you could deal with my bat problem. We've been living on a farm north of Fort Worth TX for 20 years. We've never seen any bats inside our home. We have seen 2 in the last 2 weeks. The first was on July 1st. We thought it must have flown in by accident. We removed it and thought that was over with. It was a small completely black bat. We found it dead the next morning in our yard where we released it. This past Sunday, July 12th there was a bat in our laundry room. We closed the door and put a towel under. We went in the room during the day and opened the window so hopefully it has flown out on its own. Its now Wednesday. We need to get professionals in to find out where they're getting in from and then find out where they're living. Is it true that we can't install screens or 1-way doors until the end of August? I've read some info about that online due to the pups' inability to fly yet. Since we've seen 2 in 2 weeks and its now extremely warm in our area, is this definitely a case of a colony of mother bats living somewhere in our home? What are the other possibilities? Do you know of any good companies in our area? Please let me know if you have any recommendations on this current situation.
