Wildlife Education - Information and Advice for the Safe Removal of Bats from Attics

Decatur 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 Animal Control Experts, Inc. for bat control in Decatur. I have communicated with this company for many years, and they abide 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 Georgia 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 Decatur 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 Georgia, 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 Animal Control Experts, Inc., 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 Decatur bat control project, and with Animal Control Experts, Inc.. You can email me personally if you have any problems with this company, and I will talk to them, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

I hope you can help me. I live in Decatur and have been dealing with bats for several years now. I have had them in my home, and currently have them once again in my chimney. I have had exterminators here several times and even had my chimney inspected by a fireplace company. They replaced the mesh screen over the top and checked everywhere for crack where they could be entering. No one seems to know how they are getting in. It is always the same time of year that we deal with this. Between May and July. From reading online I know that is when females have their babies and seek out warm safe places. I don't want them there! I have bat dropping all inside my fireplace, even though my flue is closed??? And I can hear them chirping and flapping and it freaks me and my kids out. I'm so afraid they are going to get in and we are going to end up getting rabies. Do u have ant suggestions? I am terrified, and frustrated. I know they are protected but I can't have them coming into my house again. Ever since we got the fine mesh screen installed I haven't had any in the house but I don't know how they still get in my chimney? Please help me. Thank you.
