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.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. There are times they may actually get trapped in the wall and if this happens you are going to have to do your best to locate where in the wall the bat is, create a hole and carefully remove the bat. 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.  You may also see issues when outside around dusk or dawn. 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. It is also illegal to use any type of poisons or chemicals for bats.
