Austin Bat Control & Removal
|About Bats: The most common colonizing bat species in Texas is the Mexican Free Tail Bat. These bats have a habit of living inside the attics of homes, and can form very large groups of maternal
colonies. Bats are good animals, and they eat a lot of insects, but when they roost inside buildings, they can leave a huge mess with their bat poop (guano), which can cause lung diseases in humans. We
are experts at humane bat control, and never harm a single one of these winged wonders.
Nuisance Concerns: The main concern is when they roost in large numbers inside a building, due to the noise and odor problems, as well as mold growth and health problems for humans. Plus, once bats establish a residence, they never leave,
and the colony only grows larger with time.
Bats are a common nuisance animal in central Texas. In Austin and Travis County, bat have become a particularly common problem, as they have invaded many
homes in the area. If you need a professional solution for your Austin bat problem, give us at A Wildlife Pro a call. We are experts at bat control and removal, and have been working with Texas

A Wildlife Pro of Austin TX,
Thank you for the time you took to write the guide. This morning we heard a sound in the attic and it turns out it is a colony of bats with babies. We called a professional company
that came out and looked the situation saying that it appears they are confining themselves to one area. They did set a trap in an area that we can easily see, and asked us to watch
the trap and let them know if we see anything. They would also check the trap for us every few days. Once they removed, they would fix the areas on our house where the bats got in.
It appears from the information you provided that squirrels can live in the attic a long time before people realize it. According to the individuals we hired, they believe the squirrels have not been up there that long. Today was the first time we had heard anything.
Here is my question: My fear is the wiring. The company did search the attic and spent a great deal of time looking around and at the wiring and stated that they didn't see anything that would cause concern.
But basically I was thinking I am about to go to bed and what if they decided to chew on a wire tonight! Generally if we have caught them early own, do you think the odds are in our favor that they will not the wiring? I know that is impossibly to answer.
A Wildlife Pro of Austin TX,
Your site was very helpful..
I have someone who could help me mount a repeater trap for bats over the access point under my soffit (where the soffit netting is). Could you tell me where I could purchase a trap for bats like the one in your photo that can be mounted under the soffit?
We already tried putting additional wood and a heavy duty metal grid over the old opening, but whatever was in the attic just pulled the netting back adjacent to the first hole. We had inserted some loose grid in this adjacent area behind the
net and it is now nowhere in sight. I can't tell if the bats got out or back in, but there was a huge racket at that corner of the attic yesterday afternoon; we had only installed the grid less than 24 hours before.
I'm pretty sure the problem is squirrels. I see two very active grey ones nearby in the day, starting at 7 am. I'm sending you a picture of the small turds that were on top of the vapor barrier over the attic access panel
to see if you can help identify the type of bats. The animal had removed the entire fiberglass batting that had been attached to this vapor barrier. There were three other areas where fiberglass had been removed leaving a cavity that looked like a sleeping area.
Also attached is a photo of the temporary fix that we attempted. I tried putting a Havahart trap in the attic with peanut butter and apples and sunflower seeds, but not a nibble. I now have it on the ground outside.
I've also thrown amonia soaked sock balls into the attic to try to encourage the animal(s) to leave. And ran a talk tv show under the access door as loud as the speaker would go all afternoon and evening. Do you think this would scare them off?
Do you have any other suggestions, including how to close the netting and whether to vacuum out all the blown in fiberglass insulation and replace it with batting?
Hi A Wildlife Pro of Austin TX, I recently had a group of bats removed from my attic and am looking into stripping all of my insullation and putting new one like you mention on your website. I'm looking for a ballpark figure on what you would charge or
what is considered a good rate for that kind of job per square foot. Appreciate your time.
I am pretty certain I have a colony of bats in my chimney. I actually had a chimney cleaner look at it when he was here. He thought that it was perhaps in the side false chimney and not in the one that has access to the house. Also, my chimneys are not capped.
What is your price range for removal?
What is your procedure for this type of thing?
