Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Colorado Springs 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 Colorado 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 Colorado Springs 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 Colorado, 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 719-203-1377, 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 Colorado Springs 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!

Contrary to what many people believe, bats would not generally attack humans. Being insectivorous, they are not aggressive animals. In case, you come across a bat in your building, acknowledge that it would be illegal to send them to the next world. Being some of the endangered animals, it would only be important that catch, then release them. To catch a bat, you would need to wear leather gloves. Use a wet towel, butterfly net or a pillowcase in order to catch it. Be sure not to injure its head since such an injury would curtail its capacity to hunt as well as survive by the use of its natural sonar form. You could also use a cardboard box or plastic container to trap it. Slide a piece of cardboard or the lid over or under the container then carry it outside before releasing it. In case anyone or your pets have come into contact with the bat, ensure that it has been tested for rabies in the Center for Disease Control.
