I have communicated with our bat expert in Grand Rapids 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.
Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 616-591-5641, 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 Grand Rapids 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!

I saw a bat in my home 2 nights ago; I swooshed it into a small room, shut the door, and sealed the bottom of it. I didn't know how to catch the bat, plus I was scared of it. I've since been told to get a net, which I did.............I went into that room shutting the door behind me..............but now, I can't find the bat. I went in there during daylight, and when it's dark..........I didn't see or hear any bat. I've checked some of the items in that room (not many in there), and pulled the ones out that I checked........I still haven't seen or heard any bat. Not in that room, nor the rest of the house. Do you think that bat is still in the house??? I've heard nor seen absolutely nothing. Should I get a trap for the inside of my home? Thank you.
Well, as fate would have it, while I was leaving at dawn for the airport I saw my usual 2 bats flying around (I always only see 2 bats) as I was watching them fly around, I saw my 2 bats fly into the corner of the attic... Then I saw another and another...at first, I thought they were the same bats but, close to daybreak, it seems many more flew in... I am in Grand Rapids MI. Can you tell me what type of bats I have and the best company that can get them out of my attic? I would love for them to stay on my property if possible just not in my attic!! Can you give me so e suggestions?
