Chattanooga 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 Chattanooga.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Chattanooga 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 Tennessee 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 Chattanooga 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 Tennessee, 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 423-408-1222, 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 Chattanooga 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!

My mother has had a major problem with bats getting in her house for years. Now that she is old it is a very major problem. She lives in Chattanooga. I was wondering if you would travel that far but mostly how much it would cost? We have patched so many holes, etc. over the years because it is a very old house. Maybe we are out of luck? We believe that there are bats in the attic. What is the cost for the removal and cleanup of any bat droppings?

Hi David! I am an American from Chatanooga living in Sweden with a problem with bats in my old summer house from around 1850. Here in Sweden, there seem to be no experts who help get bats out of the house. I have bats in the wall of my bedroom and probably in the attic. The official view in Sweden is that bats do no harm in a house ! I have been listening to the bats at night in the summer for nine years. Once, I stepped on a dead one in the bedroom. The night before last, one flew into the bedroom so now I 've had it!!!! My Swedish husband died last august so I was alone with the bat and now I feel that I can't let this go on. The house is about one hours's drive from Stockholm. I am sooo desperate to get rid of the bats. Would you consider coming to Sweden this fall to help me? I am very serious. I will be away on a hiking trip between sept. 28th - Oct.5th but other than that, I'll be here and will of course pay for all of your extra expenses besides your usual fee. Am really hoping to hear from you.
