About Waco Bat Removal

Welcome to wacobat.com. We are the only qualified bat removal company in Waco, Texas. We're a licensed wildlife control company with expertise in removing bats legally and in a 100% effective manner. Whether these pests are hiding in your attic, have made their home in the walls of your home, have infested the basement and garage, or are just swarming in your property, bats are a nuisance. Apart from the fact that these animals are quite spooky, they also cause damage to your property with the bat guano and their droppings that leave ugly stains everywhere. But when it comes to getting rid of bats, the task isn't that easy and must be done by an expert only. That's because killing or poisoning any species of bats is illegal. We provide professional bat removal services for homes, offices, apartment buildings, and any type of residential or commercial property that's infested with bats. Our bat removal experts have years of experience in clearing properties infested with bats without harming the animals in any way at all. Plus, we do not trap the bats as well. If any wildlife animal is captured during the process, our team of experts ensures that the creature is safely transported to its natural habitat where it may spend the rest of its life in peace. In addition to this, after removing the entire bat colony from your property, we'd also decontaminate the space and clean all the surfaces filled with bat guano. After our experts have finished the job, you'd be left with a home that isn't just free of bats, but also clean, fresh, and without any lingering smell of bats! We operate 24-7-365, so don't hesitate to call us at 254-343-1612 to discuss your bat problem and schedule a fast appointment.


We are experts at removing bats from residential properties. Whether you have a single bat trapped in your house, a colony roosting in your attic, and/or various other problems, there is no need to worry! During our removal process, we make sure to inspect your entire home carefully, tracking down all the entrypoints bats are using to invade your place. Next, we perform a process called live exclusion (where no bats are harmed and all exit your property), then seal all entry holes completely shut. We also take care of the cleanup process after, so your home is safe and clean!

Besides residential areas, we also have a wealth of experience removing bats from commercial properties! We begin by investigating the area for possible bat entrances, covering holes even as small as 1/4 of an inch. Through our live exclusion process, bats leave the building through one-way exits, and we seal up every hole afterward. Once the bats have been removed, we perform a cleanup process. This includes dealing with guano, replacing damaged insulation, and decontaminating the place.

What Our Customers Say

What if you are bitten by a bat

One of the most common fears associated with bats is that of getting bitten by one. This has less to do with the whole Dracula vampire myth, and a lot more to do with the fact that some bats are carriers of the deadly rabies virus. Ignored or left untreated for too long, the virus can wreak havoc on your central nervous system and will eventually prove fatal. While it's rare for humans to develop rabies (usually because they are treated in time), bats are considered the number one reason why people get rabies in the first place, in the United States.

And since bats are quite a common visitor to human dwellings, the smart thing to do is educate yourself on the appropriate steps to follow if you get bitten by a bat.

First of all, you need to understand the relationship between bats and rabies.

It's a common misconception that all bats are carriers of the infamous rabies virus. That is not, in fact, the case. Actually, the large majority of bats are not infected with rabies, studies have found. If a bat is infected, it will display some obvious signs which you need to look out for:

  • Foaming at the mouth - easily one of the most common signs of rabid animals, but by no means the only one to look for.

  • Unusually aggressive behavior - bats are generally shy, reclusive creatures. They do not favor direct confrontation and will avoid humans whenever possible, largely because of their difference in size. If a bat displays clearly aggressive behavior, it can be a sign that it has rabies.

  • Unusual flying patterns or inability to fly - since the virus affects the central nervous system, bats that fly in weird patterns or have trouble flying altogether may be affected.

  • Strange locations - as largely nocturnal and shy creatures, bats prefer dark, cool areas, where they aren't likely to come across other creatures. If, on the other hand, you see a bat out in an open location such as your front room, lawn, etc., usually during the daytime, it may be a sign of rabies infection.

If you have even the slightest suspicion that a bat on your property is infected with rabies, do not attempt to capture or handle the creature yourself. Rather call a professional wildlife removal service and inform them of your suspicion.

It's quite common for people to get bitten by weak bats they found lying on the ground and attempt to pick up. Never, ever handle a bat without wearing appropriate protection. 

So what do you do if you get bitten by a bat?

The first thing to do, if bitten, is take it seriously, regardless if the bat in question is infected or not. You can't really know if a bat has rabies or not unless it's tested in a laboratory, so always assume the worst, and follow these steps:

  1. First, wash the wound thoroughly (but gently) with soap and water.

  2. If there is heavy or moderate bleeding, apply pressure so as to stop the blood from flowing.

  3. Seek immediate medical assistance. The bat (once dead) will need to be tested by taking a small sample from its brain to determine whether or not it's infected with rabies. If you've previously been vaccinated against rabies, the doctor will still need to inject the bitten area twice with the anti-rabies vaccine. If you've never been vaccinated, the doctor will first administer a shot of Human Rabies Immunoglobin antibody directly to the wound, and then shoot up the muscle around the wound five times with the vaccine. 

If you're not sure you've been bitten, you'll still want to seek medical assistance. Of course, the above doesn't apply if the bat tests negative for rabies. Still, as a preventive measure, it's recommended to have the vaccine if you live in an area where bats are a common sighting. This is also true for your family and pets.
