First off, I have to say that if you know what you are doing, you can solve your bat problem permanently. Trapping and removal of a bat in Texas can be tricky and should never be attempted if the bat was found in a room where people were sleeping. Can I kill the bats with some sort of poison or fumigant?

Bat-proofing requires any holes or cracks over ¼ inch to be repaired, sealed, caulked, screened, or otherwise eliminated. Nuisance bats suspected of having rabies should always be left for professionals to remove.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. These creatures not only fly well, but because of how small they are they know how to burrow into areas or find places that allow them to be nearly invisible. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely.  Exclusion: Install one-way exclusion devices on the primary entry/exit areas. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home. The other commonly found bat is the Little Brown Bat.

What if I have bats living under Spanish Barrel Tiles on my roof? They like to fly into homes at small architectural gaps near the edge of the roofline, usually. For this reason you will likely need a ladder if you are going to hunt for their point of entry. If not then make sure to wear protective clothing and a very well-made mask. This can be in the form of piles of guano (bat waste) building up on the floor. We observe the structure as the bats exit for their nightly feeding. Performing an inspection requires every inch of the structure to be checked thoroughly, top to bottom.
