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

St. Augustine 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 Expel Wildlife Solutions. Inc. for bat control in St. Augustine. 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 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 St. Augustine 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 Expel Wildlife Solutions. Inc., 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 St. Augustine bat control project, and with Expel Wildlife Solutions. Inc.. 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!

I was just informed by a professional that I have bats in my attic largely located in my dormers of my cape home. I understand the process of their exclusion but I wanted to know about their poop. I have seen one bat but that was mistaken for a bed bug. One and only one bug. I almost had my home exterminated for bed bugs until I got a second opinion. Now I'm faced with BATS. I am freaked out and grossed out by the thought of them being in my attic. I'm also in the process of selling my home as well. Could I get a free estimate from you?

I live in Saint Augustine and we have a real issue with bats here. I would like to create a service to eradicate bats from residential homes, business, schools and government buildings here in my country. Could you advise me step by step what I should do, who I should check for supplies that would allow me to become a dealer for their products in my country Trinidad W.I. and maybe the Caribbean. Your assistance and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
