Jackson 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 Jackson.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Jackson 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 Mississippi 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 Jackson 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 Mississippi, 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 601-255-0830, 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 Jackson 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 read your information online and I was wondering if I need to call a bat control person or if I can do something else. I have a barn in the backyard with a big overhang. There is one side of the overhang where a bat hangs out at night. I don't think they are roosting anywhere in the barn as there has been no damage. I only see the droppings on my driveway to the barn and it grosses me out because when I open my garage, or walk around it, there are bat droppings in my walking space. Also, this is only in the summer months. One person suggested hanging a drop cloth on the overhang to catch the droppings. Any other suggestion? We haven't had any mosquitoes in our yard on the positive side, but we don't want to get a rabies shots for the 6 of us.

we have a log home in MT & we do have bats & have had them for probably 4 years. We recently had a co. come over & inspect our home. Their estimate was approximately $8,000 to go through several steps to safely extract them from our home, clean, fumigate, plug the gaps in our home, install trap doors r\that allows the bats to leave but not return to their roosting places, & last to create bat houses so they have an alternate place to reside. I' am sure they can get the job done, BUT the cost is prohibitive. I've been doing some research on the internet & have come across a web site that has a product they claim works. This product creates a sticky surface that the bats do not like & will supposedly avoid. What are your thoughts on this product? I do not want to kill the bats, but at the same time I cannot afford $7,500 to $8,500 o safely remove them.
