Waterbury 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 Waterbury.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Waterbury 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 Connecticut 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 Waterbury 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 Connecticut, 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 860-661-4413, 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 Waterbury 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!

How do you know if bats are in an attic or if they are just flying around at night stopping and resting at your house. Seeing about 20 to 30 turds a week. Having an old 1930 house with the steep roof with a finished of attic meaning I have plywood nailed to the bottom of the rafters with insulation in-between. The sides were I can get in have no proof they are getting in there. Since I have no soffit the gable end on one side is where the poop is on the ground. I have removed and replaced the wood siding and windows and saw no way in. So I am guessing this is a stopover. This work was done last April. If I still see poop I have thought of putting up steel netting nailed so that they can not get up underneath. Putting up a soffit costs $1,200. Any ideas?

I am experiencing a bat problem. I have noticed outside my deck door every morning there is bat droppings that seem to be coming from somewhere above the door. In the past I have had bats get into my home and I have had a problem getting them out. I live in a log home and there are a lot of "gaps" and entry points that they can get in, I plugged all these places and have not experienced the problem in quite awhile. Its seems with the droppings outside in just one area above my deck door leads me to believe they are staying outside the house. Is this possible or have you got another suggestion.
