Akron 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 Akron.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Akron 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 Ohio 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 Akron 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 Ohio, 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 330-615-1600, 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 Akron 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!

Hello, We found an opening in the eaves of our house, and are hearing a scratching sound in the ceiling of our house at night. I'm not sure if it is bats, but it looks like it could be - I've seen them flying around in the evenings. Do you do an inspection to see if the problem could be bats? We have currently identified a problem with bats in our building. It is located in a complex with 2 buildings, and one of them has probably a few 100 bats living in the roof area. Would you be willing to give me a proposal to:

Set up some exclusion netting
Seal any entrance points
Clean up guano where feasible.

You should know the building is in a hilly area of Austin so a tall boom would be needed to get close to the roof area to treat the entrance points and set up the netting. Let me know if this is something you could handle and I will be happy to meet with you on site.

We live in Akron Ohio, we have bats in attic & they are coming into the living quarters of the house. I had Critter Gitters come, they weren't very impressive, I don't feel confident in them removing the bats and bat proofing the house. Is there someone in the area you can recommend? We are currently not able to stay at our house, because of the bats,we have small children. Not to mention I am extremely freaked out. Thanks for your help
