Kalamazoo 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 Kalamazoo.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Kalamazoo 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 Michigan 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 Kalamazoo 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 Michigan, 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. We also service Saginaw, Battle Creek, Rochester Hills, West Bloomfield, Troy, and Waterford.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 269-216-7394, 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 Kalamazoo 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!

Kalamazoo wildlife control company bat reader email:

Dear bat guys, I have left a couple of messages over the last few days but you still haven't returned my calls. As I've said in my voicemail messages, I called you because the other day I had a bat in my bedroom and a few days again there was a bat flying in my living room. As you can imagine, this is frightening has HELL! Unfortunately, I can't figure out how they are getting in (most likely it is in the attic). These bats have entered my home at least 10 times in the last three years since I bought the home. Sometimes they have been in my attic and other times they have been in my basement and like I said I have even had them flying in my bedroom and living room. So I contacted you because you were recommended to me from the animal control website as the specialist in my area. So I am hoping you can please help me out because I don't know how they are getting into the house. Originally, I had two openings in my sunroom, so I had a contractor come and make the repairs and then replaced the entire roof in my sunroom. I also repaired a broken window in my basement but the issue has continued. Again, I imagine you are too busy to respond. So if you are too busy and can't help, can you please recommend another "bat specialist" in the Kalamazoo area? I would greatly appreciate that. I need to resolve this issue as soon as possible, I thank you in advance for your response. Sincerely, David

I apologize. Did DJ of BatGuys call you back? -

Thank you for responding, David. Yes, Matt did return my call and came over and gave me a quote (albeit very pricey). He was very nice. Fortunately, I he didn't find any bats roosting in my attic. Apparently, I don't seem to have much of a problem. I also didn't realize it would cost close to $3,000 because I have a slate roof. That seems awfully steep. Of course, I can't really justify paying that much when it happens so infrequently. And another bat remover won't even come to give me a quote because he says there's nothing I can do about it because I have a slate roof. Fortunately, I have done my homework and know what to do if and when it happens again. I'm going to secure my chimneys myself and am researching other alternatives. Thanks again. David
