Boston 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 Boston.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Boston 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 Massachusetts 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 Boston 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 Massachusetts, 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 617-939-9710, 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 Boston 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!

Dear Sir: I was reading over the information on your site, which seemed to be very intelligent and well-founded, till I came to this sentence: "Most cases of human infection are due to bats." So you have done your part to add to the hysteria about and groundless persecution of one of our most useful species. Would you be so kind as to provide some sort of documentation of this claim? I assume your site is aimed at prospective customers in the US. If so, your claim is remarkable since most North American bats jaws are so constructed as to make it almost impossible for them to bite a human, even if picked up, unless one actually sticks a finger in the bat's mouth. Also, when you say "most cases of human infection," just to keep things in perspective, what number of cases are you talking about? Thank you. Yours truly, John

I have seen the same single bat attached to the concrete wall of the Boston County Courthouse two days in a row. Is it possible that it could be sick? It doesn't look like it has moved much since I first saw it yesterday between 12 and 12:30 in the afternoon. I have no authority to request removal, but I was worried a little after reading the news article about losing many bats to the white nose disease. Is it normal for one bat to be in the same position two days in a row?

I HAVE BATS IN MY ATTIC BUT NOTHING LIKE IN YOUR PICS. I HAD A GUY GIVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF ALMOST 3K TO GET RID OF A FEW BATS. SO MY QUESTION TO YOU IS DO THE ELECTRONIC REPELLERS WORK SO I COULD GET AWAY WITH SPENDING A FEW BUCKS AND NOT A FEW THOUSAND THAT I DON'T HAVE? I've been told by my old neighbor that she's seen bats coming and going from my empty property, how can I get them removed, and how much does it cost, my property is in Plymouth MA, I look forward to receiving your reply, regards Janet
