Marietta 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 Marietta.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Marietta 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 Marietta 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 404-609-4280, 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 Marietta 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!

Hello David, thank you for the educational information about bats. I own a 2 1/2 story brick home in Marietta GA (approx 15-20 miles north west of Atlanta) and last year (2013) In August, we had a little bat problem. We had one flying around the living room, caught it and released it. Then two weeks later, woke up in the middle of the night with one flying in the bed room, couldn't catch it as it crawled under the wall and up the plaster. We found it again then next night and caught it and released it. I watched at night to see where they were coming at night and saw they were coming out where a dormer met the roof. Put a metal sheet over the opening and used spay foam around it. Then the same night found one more. After that no more problems, during that time I would go to the attic and couldn't see any or hear any or even find any bat poop. So the exact location I don't know where, just somewhere in the attic. All winter, no problems, up until tonight where we had one flying in the living room. Caught it and released. Do you think this was a fluke, or do you think there still is some living up there? I don't know what to do and now cant sleep!!! Any info would be great. Is there any thing I can put near the old entry point to deter them away, like some strong odor spray or something? Thank you for your time and thanks for reading this.
