Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Virginia Beach 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 Virginia 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 Virginia Beach 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 Virginia, 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 757-550-4886, 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 Virginia Beach 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 noticed bats emerging from out attic two weeks ago when the weather was warm. Today a wildlife removal service from your list sealed my house and installed a bat door and bat net at the two access points. However the weather is now cool- in the 40's. Will the bats still emerge while it's cold? How long should we leave the bat door/net in place? I want to be sure we allow enough time for all the bats to safely emerge. Thank you

Dear David, I was happy this morning to have found your website and information with regards to dealing with bats. I am an environmentalist from southeast Virginia. Some people contacted me here in Virginia Beach to assist them on how to environmentally friendly remove bats from one of the government old school. I am currently research on this on the Internet. I will also find out from our environment ministry if in terms of legislation there will be a need for an EIA or not. How do you think I can about assisting in this regards? Do I need to write a recommendation on removing the bats in an ecologically friendly way? Hoping to hear from and your cooperation in this regards will be highly appreciated. Best regards.

I have one different from the situations discussed on your website. I have at least one bat who has taken up residence in mt gable vent in my attic. The vent is sealed inside with heavy steel mesh, so he can't actually get in my attic. What he does is wedge himself between the bottom louver and the outside of the mesh and sacks out. My big problem is that the bat crap is small enough to fall through the mesh into my attic. To excluse his access, I would have to put something like hardware cloth on the outside of the louvered vent, which I do not think my homeowner's association would allow. Do you have any ideas on how to get rid of this problem?
