Birmingham 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 Birmingham.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Birmingham 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 Alabama 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 Birmingham 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 Alabama, 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 205-453-7879, 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 Birmingham 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!

Hi David, I just read your article about bats exclusion and wanted to touch base with you. I am 100percent sure that I have bats in my attic since I have seen them leave at dusk. I actually counted about 50 bats leaving from my soffit and the gap on the side of my brick wall. Initially I thought they were living in the wall and not the attic; but I am pretty sure now that they have taken habitat in my attic. My question is how long do bats have to be in the attic before one should worry about guano accumulation. I notice a wet dog this past Sunday in my upstairs hallway, right above the attic door. I also smell it in my daughter room which is at the front of the house whose wall the bats get in and out from. I am worried because I've been told that nothing can get done until August and this is only June. So guano accumulation is a very worrisome for me at this time. BTW, is A Wildlife Pro as trustworthy and efficient as you mentioned in your article? Is this recommendation based on your knowledge of the company or is this an advertisement. I am very stressed by this situation due to the health risk and the fact that I cannot stand bats. Please help. Thanks, Carline

Just read your very informative piece on the bat exclusion process and had a small question. Bats have made nests between the wall shingles and the eaves brackets in our cottage out in the woods. If I were to get the bats out using the methods that you have suggested, what is to prevent their finding another spot in our cottage? Would setting up bat houses nearby help the situation or just make it worse? Many thanks for any advice.
