Albuquerque Bat Removal

Not all wildlife removal companies are the same. Some have experience with bat removal projects, and are familiar with the proper methods for bat exclusion. But others use incorrect techniques, such as bat traps, summer exclusions, or worse, fumigants. Do your research before you hire someone! I personally recommend our field technician for bat control in Albuquerque.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Albuquerque for many years, and he abides by these bat removal principles:

  • Always perform a proper live exclusion.
  • Never use poisons or fumigants or kill bats.
  • Never use traps or attempt to relocate bats.
  • Never do a removal during the maternity season.
  • Seal all entry points shut with guarantee.
  • Offer attic cleanup and decontamination.
  • Properly New Mexico licensed and insured.
As I discuss repeatedly on this website, bat removal projects are not easy, and not for amateurs. I have seen many horrible attempts at bat colony removal throughout the years, done both by do-it-yourself homeowners and by incompetent companies. Never hire a Albuquerque pest control company that uses poisons for rodent or insect control. They often attempt the same approach for bats. Not only is this incredibly destructive and illegal in New Mexico, but it results in disaster for the homeowner, and does not actually solve the problem. It's very important that the removal of bats from the attic of your home is done in the correct manner, and there is only one correct way, with a live bat exclusion. To read more about this process, read my bats in the attic home page.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 505-273-3180, talk to them, and make sure that they understand what they are doing, and that they have experience. Be sure that they do abide by the principles I outlined above. This is not just for the sake of the bats - I'm no tree hugger - it's for the sake of doing the job correctly, for you and your property. The fact that it's good for the bats as well is a lucky coincidence. And really, bats are good animals, which I'm sure you realize. I hope you have a good experience with your Albuquerque bat control project. You can email me personally if you have any problems with our tech, and I will talk to him, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

Hi David, I've just spent time on your website and wow thank you for such great informative information. We received word last night that the folks staying in my grandparents house in saw two bats in one of the bedrooms. I've reached out to your listing in hire a pro - but haven't heard back from them yet. We were told that the bats were brown and had a wing span of 8 to 10 inches. They were behind a twin bed in the corner of the a upstairs bedroom and then started flapping around. The people in the house opened a window removed the screen and they flew out. Looks like we need an inspection as soon as possible. We have this house booked for rental until Sept 7. Do you know of any other bat removal experts in the Albuquerque or Santa Fe area? Thank you so much in advance. Feel free to call me if its easier. Best regards, Maxine

First thank you for your website, it's very well done and informative. Secondly, do you have anyone you can suggest to work with in New Mexico? We have a vacation rental home in Angel Fire with bats in the roof during the summer time. We have a local roofing contractor who can seal it up before they return this year, but I'd prefer to speak with a specialist so the guano can be removed too.

I had a small part of my second floor bathroom ceiling removed to install a fan. Last night, two bats made their way into the living room. So this must mean bats are living up above. I don't have an attic. There is a very shallow vertical space above most of the second floor, roughly about 20-24" high. Is this space still large enough to support a colony substantial enough to cause damage, odor and health risks? Should I still look into bat removal? It looks very expensive, to say the least, and I have had a spate of somewhat expensive disasters this winter. How long can it wait? I have seen only one bat in my house before this in the past 12 years.
