Canton 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 Canton.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Canton 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 Ohio 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 Canton 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 Ohio, 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 440-527-6300, 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 Canton 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!

David: We have a bat problem at our house. They are in the attic and coming into our living area. I've removed about 6 that have gotten into our family room. Can you help? We leave for California Friday and I want to figure out where they are getting into the attic and the house asap. When are you available? We have a log cabin up in Canton OH. On the roof were indications of bats coming in under our wood roof. We hired some guys to seal those openings up last September. Now I see droppings (might be mice) and perfectly round nickel sized oily looking and feeling markings on the furniture and wood floor. Does that oily substance have anything to do with bats. It really is hard to clean up. Thanks for your time. I will take advantage this time if it is bats of your directory recommendations.

David, My name is Ben. I am currently living in Canton OH. We just had the first really warm day with temperatures rising above 55 F. My wife and I recently purchased our home so we have been living here for less than 3 months. This evening I heard a strange scrapping sound that I thought was an animal inside the wall on the second floor of my house. I retrieved a ladder and took a look in the attic. After a couple of minutes with my head stuck through the opening, I saw what I thought was a mouse scenting the air. When it raised up a bit more I could tell it was actually a bat. I closed the hatch and got online to determine what I need to do. Your website was helpful so I decided to contact you to ask if you could recommend a bat removal team in ND. Thanks for your time, Ben
