Fort Lauderdale 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 Fort Lauderdale.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Fort Lauderdale 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 Florida 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 Fort Lauderdale 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 Florida, 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 954-372-8896, 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 Fort Lauderdale 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 was just at a neighbors house and he suddenly looked up and said "oh, here come the Bats". He said every night around 8 they start to swarm. The come out of the Chimney of the Missionary Alliance church in Ft Lauderdale, directly across from the Eagle Dollar store at the corner of 206 and route 30, the signal light corner. It is really terrible. There must have been about 50 of them and they would periodically dive down into the chimney of the church and then fly back out at some point. Who do we report this too. People from that church are away of it. Not sure if they would remove them but neighbor said it has been going on for quite a while so don't think they are calling anyone to remove them.

Hi, Where I live we have a window with a screen on the inside of our attic that has slats over the outside and we have had bats recently that have flown up the slats and are resting on the screen. I have been into the attic and they have not gotten into the attic. To get them to leave we sprayed at the window with water and that worked. However, I assume that will not work forever and they will come back. Do you have any ideas as to what could I do to block off the screen/window without blocking the airflow into the attic? Also, I need to come up with a way to clean the bat poop that is up there. I would just hire someone, but I do not make a lot of money and my boyfriend hasn't had a job in over 2 years so we are just trying to make it by. Do you have any ideas? Thanks, Susan
