I have communicated with our bat expert in Clarksville 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.
Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 931-278-6800, 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 Clarksville 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, I found your website VERY helpful. I have read other sites and about to put up 1/4" netting 18 inches long over a few different spots on my house that I think bats are coming out of or have seen them come out of in the past. Tonight I noticed about 8 bats coming out of the one active spot I know of. I attached one of your pictures and it's exactly what I intended on doing over these entry/exit points. I noticed the netting was taped on the side, I'm guessing that is needed so they don't slip back in? I would not have thought of the taping on the side if I did not see your picture. My intention is to get the bats to go elsewhere as I'm going to roof replaced and vinyl residing soon and want to get them out before trapping them in. Do you have any suggestions/tips or words of caution in putting up the netting to get the bats out?Thanks for any advice you have
My Response: Do-it-yourself jobs can be tricky, because you don't know what you don't know. But if I have any advice, it's this - set the nets at night. That way, if you screw up something (high probability - just being honest) many of the bats will be out already. Also, make sure there is enough room for the bats to get out! If they don't see enough room, they will refuse to come out, and that's a problem.
