Atlanta 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 Atlanta.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Atlanta 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 Georgia 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 Atlanta 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 Georgia, 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 404-609-4280, 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 Atlanta 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, Just how dangerous are bats to people. We had one bat fly in our condo and we had to go for Shots for 4 weeks to be save. So Yes I am concerned about our people living and breathing Bat dropping and Asbestos into their lungs at any rate. We have a group of people that want to restore an Old School House bldg. which has Asbestos as well as a huge number of *live and dead bats * which have been in the school for years and years, even when these children and teachers went to school daily. Half the town feels it should be torn down for safety reasons and the other half think it's ok to try to save at the price tag of a couple million dollars. Besides this building is not wheel chair assessable. (The bats and asbestos are the mayor concerns.) Just looking for information as to how dangerous Bat dropping etc. are when they have been in our case an old School House -Also this School has Asbestos so this is a double dose of fear which kids and teachers were exposed to. I am thinking anyone with breathing issues would certainly be possibly compromised. I would appreciate your input as to whether we should even think about restoring this building cannot be classed as heritage because it has been altered. Yes we need to remove All the Bats in it. Thanks for your info on Bats, Dorothy
