Baltimore 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 Baltimore.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Baltimore 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 Maryland 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 Baltimore 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 Maryland, 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 443-231-4132, 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 Baltimore 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, I currently live in a house about 30ft from the water/inlet marsh in Baltimore. We moved into this house in November I just recently discovered the extra portion of the attic had this strange stuff all over the insulation? Could you please take a look and let us know if we are dealing with Bat Guano? This area is directly above the master bedroom and we have been feeling very ill since the move in? I did not see any bats, the pictures were taken during the day? Thank you for any help you may be able to provide. Sincerely, Connie S.

Hi, I came across a bat and its excrement when I tore down drywall from the ceiling of a bedroom. The bat eventually crawled back up to the attic between the ceiling joist and the insulation. I'd like the bat removed, the area inspected for others, and any damage assessed.

Good day David, I used to live in Maryland near Baltimore Ellicot City but now reside in Africa and wish to ask how does one chase off a bat colony. My sister reside in Mozambique in a place where the is a huge bat colony. They reside in their trees and makes a real noise and ghastly mess in the gardens. Would appreciate some advice. Thank you, Deanna
