Dayton 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 Dayton.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Dayton 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 Ohio 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 Dayton 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 Ohio, 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 937-790-4057, 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 Dayton 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!

I have been trying to exclude bats from my attic since September 2012. I hired a reputable local company. They inspected the attic, found several entry points sealed them up and cleaned the attic. Sadly, the bats came back again and again. By December 2013 the wildlife removal company had returned to my house about 5 times! Each time they seemed to find new possible entry points. They sealed along the chimney, they made sure the roof ridge vent had caps, they put foam insulation in places where the roof meets the walls. The bats were gone for a couple of months this winter but have been back since the Spring. I have hired a new company Professional Wildlife Removal Services. As on your website, they asked me to do a bat watch. We have watched the house for two nights (once with three people and once with four). Although we see bats flying around after sunset, we have not been able to see them emerge -- they do not come out until it is fairly dark and you can only see them against the sky or another light background. I cannot keep asking my neighbors to help me, and my husband and I cannot truly watch the whole house with just us two. I tried to hire a couple of teens but had no luck. I have a two story house (with dormers!) and I wonder if the bats are coming out on some part of the roof that cannot be seen from the ground. Do you have any ideas for an alternative, more effective form of bat watch ? I thought about hiring a roofing company to actually go on the roof to inspect it -- do you think someone who doesn't necessarily know anything about bats could identify entry points? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
