Huntsville 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 Huntsville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Huntsville 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 Alabama 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 Huntsville 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 Alabama, 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 256-517-7870, 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 Huntsville 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: Thanks for your website and for your humane approach to removing wildlife from homes! I came across your website while trying to find ideas for a bat problem. I saw a bat flying in a basement bedroom. Then it crawled into the space where the joists of the floor above me meet the top of the concrete block that form the basement walls. (There apparently is no sill plate.) Now I smell what I suspect is a dead bat. I can't saw through concrete blocks to find it and remove it. Any ideas? It's my living space and I'd hate to think I'm condemned to smelling this poor little deceased guy. (By the way, I'm the only person in my family who live traps bats to remove them as opposed to killing them. But this one crawled out of reach before I could get it.) Thanks for your suggestions, thanks for your work, and have a happy new year! From a fellow animal lover, Allison

My response: So you surely have a colony of bats living in the attic/walls. You need to address that issue, so no more bats get in your basement.

I have someone that contacted me about removing bats from a building and they want no harm to come to the bats. I am a supporter of the Bat Sanctuary in Texas. I have contacted them as well. The building is in Alabama. I will be referring your website to them. Thank you for such comprehensive info! I hope I can contact you in the future! Im slowly raising awareness of these little guys! Again, Thanks!
