Ocala 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 Ocala.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Ocala 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 Florida 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 Ocala 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 Florida, 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 352-415-9031, 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 Ocala 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!

We recently noticed bat droppings in a back section of our house. They are in a building that is attached to the house, but the space has a dirt floor and is unheated. The bats are between 2 roofs. (A new roof of a different pitch was constructed over the original roof) Our house is 200 years old and just full of places where nature finds its way in. We have only been there a little over a year and we are doing our best to reseal and repair all the areas that need attention. Realistically, it will take us years before we can say nature is kept safely out of our home. We can't possibly pay someone to do this all around our house to keep the bats out. The work is too extensive and unaffordable for us. I just don't know what to do. I don't think there are many bats there. We literally just noticed the droppings 4 days ago. Please, if you can offer us any advice I am willing to listen. I think bats are great to have around - just not in my house. Thank you and have a good day, Carole
