Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Pittsburgh 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 Pennsylvania 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 Pittsburgh 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 Pennsylvania, 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 724.858.6181, 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 Pittsburgh 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!

The information that I've gathered, so far, is that I cannot build, & install a "Bat House" within the Pittsburgh area. These would be great mammal's to have around, due to the insect's that we have to suffer, & deal with, once the sun-set's. Our area is especially bad, & they fog the area quite a few times through the summer months. Still doesn't seem to work all that well. We have to stay inside, or get ate-alive, by going out after dark. Any change, or positive actions on the rule ? I live in the Ridge Ave. area, & would love to build, & be able to install at least one of these houses, on my property....Thank's for any info...Rex.

David, I loved your article: "What Kind of Damage Do Bats Cause". Thank you so much for your hard work. My fiance' and I own a biohazard remediation company. We had a friend opening a restaurant that was in a building that had not been used for about 15 years. She knew we had biohazard equipment and asked us to handle the job. She said other companies would tear her building apart and destroy a 100 year old tin ceiling that she had refurbished. We investigated and found no bats currently inside the attic space because the contractor's before us had already sealed them out. Thank God, that it was in early August and the babies were already gone. We found no bodies or anything which pleased us very much. We read all about bats, breeding cycles, endangered species, and guano and the dangers and agreed to do the job. We were using vacuum hoses in a 36 inch crawlspace in the attic area which was extremely hot work. But, we got the entire attic remediated, then sprayed disinfectant, and also ran an ozone machine in the building to remove all forms of mold and fungi the disinfectant might have missed. We wanted to ensure quality because this building was going to be used for food service. I checked your website and saw that you had no one listed for our area for bat remediation services. How can we be listed? Again, Great job on the article and thanks so much!
