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 could anyone think they would run into a person?

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. Because bats have such a high metabolism and eat so many bugs they pass a lot of waste.
