Denver 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 Denver.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Denver 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 Denver 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 720-259-2560, 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 Denver 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 recently came across your Bat Control Blog online, and since you appear to be an expert with bats, I was hoping you might be able to help me with a couple questions. I'm doing research for a book in the "Worst Case Scenario" series and I've been asked to find out how a person might survive/handle a swarm of bats. Theoretically, if someone were to suddenly find themselves amidst a swarm of bats (an uncommon occurrence, I hope!), what injuries would they be most likely to experience, and how might they best protect themselves while in the midst of the swarm? Thank you very much for your time, and thank you in advance for any advice you might be able to offer! Best, Brooke

My response: I myself have been in several swarms of THOUSANDS of bats. Not one will ever touch you. 0% chance of any injury.

I have a chimney in my house but it has been completely sealed up by a wall on the inside of the house. The bats come once a year through the summer then leave around winter. I don't mind the bats being there and I enjoy watching them fly out at dusk but my question is should I have them removed? I have looked in the attic and do not see any signs of them in the attic itself. Any danger of just letting them summer in my attic?

I have bats in my house!! In the past week we have removed 11-12 bats of varying sizes from the living area of my house. We have had several severe storms come thru in the past week as well. We think we found the area where they are entering. Can they be removed from my home this time of year? I live in northeast Denver near Colorado Springs. I have four children and a dog I'm extremely concerned about the situation.
