Macon 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 Macon.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Macon 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 Georgia 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 Macon 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 Georgia, 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 478-488-3003, 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 Macon 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!

Very interesting site, and thanks for the very informative write-ups. Just found out this AM that we have a bat stuck inside a hanging light fixture in the attic. We live in a big, old Victorian house, so there are MANY ways this bat could have gotten in. My question is--do you know of anyone in Vermont who can check out our home? I noticed you had most of the states covered in your list, but not Macon. Also, you mentioned that none of the preventative measures are 100% effective, but is there a good deterrent instead? We're afraid that the cost to "seal" our old home will run into the thousands! Thanks!

Your website is terrific! Easy to navigate and very well written! I have bats. Surprise! Today I hired my pest control company, and they are following all the rules you mention on your site; essentially I will have a brown bat nursery until mid August or so! Luckily I am a huge animal lover so I am not freaking out. In the next week or so, the pest company will seal off the secondary access points. Now I am about to add MD to your name with my question. In the last two months, I keep getting rash-like red bumps that take forever to go away. My dermatologist said it is dermatitis and gave me a cream, but my primary physician thinks it is bugs/bite related. I saw that bats do carry, could it be that some of these "bat bugs" are in my house and gnawing on me?! Would love your opinion so I can have some knowledge when I call my MD. The bats are safe until the fall even if I have red spots here and there all summer in any case.
