Springfield 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 Springfield.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Springfield 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 Massachusetts 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 Springfield 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 Massachusetts, 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 413-240-2848, 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 Springfield 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 have bats in our attic and live in Springfield MA (about 70 miles from Worcester). I was wondering if you know anything about " Bat-o-Pest. " company. They are a local company. I know your website recommends Bitty Bat Varmint Control in Massachusetts, but they charge a $200 service call for an estimate (due to the distance here) and I thought a local company would save us some money. However I want it done right...--I thought I would see if you've heard anything about Bat-o-Pest.

David, Hello, we have recently sealed up the attic and excluded the bats from the attic. Most of the guano (and all of the insulation) has been removed, but there is a lingering odor. What is the enzyme-based product that you recommend to spray around the attic? Do you recommend the atomizer to distribute the enzyme-based product, or will any spray device work? Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

David, I have had trouble finding help in removing bats from my attic. I live in the Springfield, MA area and there is not a professional company you recommend here. I am having to resort to using a pest control company. The only one I have found that appears to be able to deal with this is Orkin. I have just made initial inquiries, so I thought I would ask for your help in knowing what I should be asking and/or looking for before committing to hiring Orkin. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. One other question: will the bats winter in my attic or will they seek a warmer place? Thank you for your time.
