Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee 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 850-252-1720, 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 Tallahassee 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!

I came across your name while I was doing some research on the dead bat I found on my back porch last night. It appears to be a small brown bat (smaller than my clinched fist). I have had a friend to check our attic about a month ago when we came in and I heard some "squealing" going on over the eave in our garage. The person found no evidence of bats or saw any places where they might be coming in. He was just a friend not an expert. My husband and I are elderly, so we did not need to go "inspecting" our big attic. I am wondering if there could be bats in the insulation between the main walls and the outside walls. The house was built about 15 years ago....not a really old structure....never expected to see a dead bat on the porch especially when it is winter. There are small cracks on the porch (porch is on the second level of the house) so it could have come through those holes. I put it in a jar, sealed it and now it is in my feezer....yuck, but I felt I needed to put it there. Any suggestions on what we need to do or not do? Is there someone in this area who can do a more thorough check? Thank you for your assistance
