Wildlife Education - Information and Advice for the Safe Removal of Bats from Attics

Peoria 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 THIS SPACE AVAILABLE for bat control in Peoria. I have communicated with this company for many years, and they abide 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 Illinois 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 Peoria 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 Illinois, 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 THIS SPACE AVAILABLE, 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 Peoria bat control project, and with THIS SPACE AVAILABLE. You can email me personally if you have any problems with this company, and I will talk to them, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

Hi David - Great website! I have a rather large colony in my house in central Illinois of at least 200-300 little brown bats. They are awesome little creatures and I want to keep them, but they are out of control and crawling down into the walls, making a lot of noise, etc. I have put up bat houses and sealed all small openings, and planned to do the exclusion when they left this winter. However, they are also comfortable enough that they don't appear to be migrating in the winter anymore, so I am not sure what to do. Where are you located? Would it be possible for you to give me a call to discuss the particulars of my colony? I am tired of reading the same general info over and over online, and have not found anyone who seems more knowledgeable than you.
