Fort Myers 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 Myers.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Fort Myers 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 Myers 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 239-829-5372, 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 Myers 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!

Hi David. I just came across your website and read it. I live in Fort Myers - 5 hours north of Key West. It just so happens I am getting ready to put up 2 bat houses on a post in front of my house - the sunny side. I have them painted black and ready to go. They were purchased new. I just read tons of info about this back in May and I can't wait to put these up. I have been very busy that's why it is so late. This evening I was cleaning out my eaves trough and I could hear bats inside my roof of my house. I waited until it was getting dark and sure enough, there they were coming out somewhere from the roof. It was very hard to see exactly where because they moved so fast. I did have my camcorder and saw on the replay where they came out. It is from a peak of the soffit just below the roof, that is also the peak of my daughter's bedroom as it sticks out from the main roof. Late last year, I had a new metal roof put on over top of the old asphalt roof. My question to you is - do you know where in Ft. Myers are the best companies to remove bats? I live in Southwest Florida near the everglades. Reading about how to remove them, you say to start in September. I have a brick house. The soffit is next to this. What type of mesh or netting to use for the gaps between? Can silicone be used? What else could be used that works? I can put my ladder up there and do section by section. How does the mesh get attached to the brick? I could use your advice. Thanks very much.
