Battle Creek 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 Battle Creek.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Battle Creek 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 Michigan 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 Battle Creek 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 Michigan, 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 269-216-7394, 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 Battle Creek 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!

Do All Bats Carry Rabies?

No. Bats are known to be carriers of rabies but the majority do not. In fact, bats carry rabies far less compared to many other species and the likelihood of contracting rabies from a bat is very very low, but it does happen. There are about one or two human deaths reported each year that happen because of bat rabies in the United States. So, your likelihood of catching the plague or some other disease are much higher than getting rabies from a bat. If you are bitten by a bat, seek medical attention and have the bat tested if possible. The bite of a bat feels like sharp needles piercing through your skin. Rabies is mostly transmitted via a bite which is related to careless handling of bats. Seek professional help if you have a bat infestation in your house.
