Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Baton Rouge 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 Louisiana 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 Baton Rouge 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 Louisiana, 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 225-289-4143, 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 Baton Rouge 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, First we live in Baton Rouge LA. We have only been in this house for 5 months and we came from New Zealand so this is new to me. Last night I realized we have bats in our roof space. I was outside with the dog and they started flying around. I have seen them before and thought they were coming from a large hedge we have at the back of our house but then last night I went round the back of the house and they were just "appearing" from between the soffit and wall. We have tiles on the roof and then wood under that so they don't (I think) have access to the attic its self. I have read your online info which was excellent thank you and my question is if we leave it till the end of August because of the babies will they all then leave and we can seal up the house or will they keep coming back during the winter? As an after thought do they hibernate? If so will they "hang out" in our roof or go somewhere else? Thanks again for you informative site and I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello, I believe I have bats in my attic. Heard a soft little screeching noise when we banged on the wall in the upstairs bedroom. I haven't crawled up in the attic yet. I don't see signs of bat droppings outside the attic vent or around the eves of roof but I do not think that noise was from birds, either. How much does it cost to remove bats? Is it a flat rate or hourly? Do you seal the holes, too? Do you clean up the bat droppings, too? I am dreading this ordeal but I have to get started and make sure they are cleaned out of there and seal up the holes they are getting in.
