Bat Removal: SAFE & HUMANE

We have years of experience in pest removal, including bats, mice and squirrels. The intent of these animals is never to get inside your home to harm you. They are survivalists, and your home offers them safety and a food source. 

Flying animals are particularly difficult to remove from a home because they can go where we can’t, and their movements are more sporadic than a 4-legged creature. That’s why you’re better off calling a professional rather than trying to get a bat out of your home yourself. 

About our bat removal service in Austin Texas: 

  • Our teams are trained in humane, non-threatening removal techniques so no one (not even the bats) is harmed during removal. We can also relocate the bat so it can rejoin its colony. 
  • We can assist you in getting rabies testing if a family member or pet has come in contact with the bat or its waste.
  • We are fast and professional. Working quickly gives us the best chance of removing the animal with little stress, which makes the job a whole lot easier! 
  • We can offer prevention tips to keep your home free of bats. Make no mistake, if a bat is insistent upon coming into your home, it will find a way. But we have years of experience with bat behavior, so or teams can tell you what to do to reduce the risk.

COMMON BAT PROBLEMS.

Besides being horrified by the mere presence of a bat, there are several legitimate reasons to fear a bat in your home:  

  • Bat droppings, called guano. Bats produce lots of it. Not only is guano full of disease and parasites, it’s also acidic, so it will erode building materials. Since bats hang in one location all day, guano can become a major issue in a very short time. 
  • Potentially dangerous. Bats aren’t likely to attack humans in the wild. However, it’s entirely possible that they will scratch or bite to defend themselves. This could lead to rabies, but more commonly a bad infection. 
  • A bat will hide in a dark, warm place. This could be your chimney, attic, or the eaves of your roof. Not knowing that bats have taken up residence in your home could result in injury for both of you. 
  • Scratching noises are one of the most common complaints of homeowners with a bat problem. They move around during the day and hunt at night, so there’s no relief from the sound of their feet gripping the wood or plastic where they have found refuge.

BAT SAFETY TIPS

Buy a Bat House

Build or buy a bat house. Having a bat house gives the bats a better alternative than your home. Place it on the south or southeast side of your home, but don’t hang it on a tree where predators can get to it.

Scaring Bats

Don’t attempt to scare them with noise. Bats aren’t really intimidated by sounds, since they use echolocation to sense prey and predators. You’re going to frighten them more by being in close proximity.

Chimney Fire

Don’t start a fire if you suspect bats in your chimney. This is not a humane method of bat removal and we do not recommend it. Let a professional wildlife removal company remove them safely instead.

DON'T TRY DIY!

Even after knowing the facts about bats, that doesn’t mean that homeowners are qualified to do their own bat removal. This is a process that should be given the upmost seriousness and safety, due to the health risks associated with bats.
