Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 904-302-5617, 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 Jacksonville 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 have found your website very helpful - thanks. The question I have is why can't you do a live exclusion in the month of August? From my reading a live exclusion is installing a one way device that allows the bats to leave but not re-enter. I understand that until the end of August the bats giving birth or the young ones are not able to fly out on their own but if a one way devise is installed I can start to get them out. As well, how do I make 100percent sure that every single one of them is out and I don't leave one behind when I seal the area off? Thanks very much as I appreciate your feedback and expertise.

We have recently spent a lot of time on your website. My mother's attic is apparently the summer home to several hundred bats. Her attic is not accessible to clean out. It is an older home. She has been told that the guano will dry out on its own and this will be okay. Have you had experience with this? Do you know anyone in NE Florida, there seems to be a shortage of reliable bat exclusion companies there. She has a 2-story home and a metal roof that wasn't sealed, so she will need more than just the basic exclusion done I think. Thanks again for the helpful website. This has really been a great reference for us in trying to decide how to handle this situation! Judy

My husband, Mark, and I have had bats in our attic for over ten years and have not had much luck getting rid of them. Mark has looked for openings in all the dormers and around the chimney. He has sealed up several, but has not found the point of entry because the bats are still there. We were intrigued by your website and guide for getting rid of the bats, but don't see any experts in the Jacksonville Florida area. Any suggestions? We are concerned about the health issues and want to get this problem taken care of once and for all. Thank you, Jeanne
