Ann Arbor 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 Ann Arbor.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Ann Arbor 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 Michigan 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 Ann Arbor 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 Michigan, 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 734-418-4035, 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 Ann Arbor 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, David. We have seen bats inside our home on many occasions. Our upstairs living area was once the attic, but most of it has been converted to living space. The walls slant down, and the lowest part continues to serve as the "attic." We haven't actually seen any live bats for a few years, but there' s a terrible dead animal stench, mainly in the bathroom. The vanity lights in this bathroom are covered by a grate, and I've seen the bats inside this grate in the past. My first question is how can I get rid of this horrible odor? Also, I've considered putting some lights/lamps in different areas in the attic with a timer that will turn the lights on at dusk and go off at day light. Would this keep the bats from coming in? Lastly, I live in Ann Arbor MI.; would you'd 're recommended companies in either Detroit or Chicago come to my city, and if so, what (roughly) would be the cost for these "professionals" to rid our attic of any live bats, clean up droppings and any dead bats, and find and eliminate the places of entrance. Any advice/help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Patty.

Hello, my name is Tom and was wondering if bats that were birthed this season would be able to be out flying around at this time. I live in southwest Michigan.
