Bats in our Houston Community


Hello Houstonians bat season is upon us again. If you have not been outside to enjoy our great weather you may not have noticed. We have an enormous bat population here in our city. Don’t be alarmed they don’t all carry rabies. Bats are actually a great benefit to our community.  They keep the insect population regulated naturally.

Bats in Houston are a big concern for a lot of residents. Houston Bats consist of thirteen different species. The most common is the Mexican Free Tailed bat. Some of our bats migrate and some are constant residents. Their gestation period (baby season) is from May 15th  – August 1st. During this period of time the babies are unable to fly which limits Houston Wildlife Removal the ability to remove from homes and business’s.

Bats do take up residence in our homes and business’s very frequently. They may go unnoticed for an extended period of time which gives them the ability to grow the colony within the structure. Once The Critter Team conducts our inspection of the building we develop a plan of action to start the removal process. We first locate the entry and exit points for the bat colony. The second step is to seal the entire building to ensure that they do not make any

new entry points.  The Critter Team  installs bat removal devices at this point to get them out and keep them out. We leave the device installed until all bats are out. All our bat removal work is backed up with a written guarantee.

Once the bat removal is complete, you may need some attic restoration depending on the size of the colony and the length of time they were present. Houston Wildlife Removal will remove all contaminated insulation, disinfect, sanitize, and deodorize. Then we install new insulation to meet or exceed our areas code (R30).
