Kansas City 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 Kansas City.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Kansas City 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 Missouri 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 Kansas City 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 Missouri, 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 816-533-4170, 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 Kansas City 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!

Kansas City wildlife control company bat reader email:

Hi David, Great website. I have always liked bats. The reason for my email, as if you don't know, I have some bats living in a hole where a piece of brick has moved by the roof overhang. I don't know if this hole leads into my attic. I'm also not sure how many there are. I can actually see one them sleeping right now at the opening. I live in Kansas City (MO side) where the weather will get colder in the fall, so I have a few questions I'm hoping you can help me with: 1. You mention not to do anything until the pups can fly. Is that always around August? 2. The weather in New Jersey starts to get colder the middle of fall, will these bats actually leave my house and migrate somewhere? Or will they stay put and hibernate in that hole? 3. How will I know when they are all gone? Do I actually have to inspect the hole? Inspect my attic (yuck)? I want to make sure I'm don't hurt them. Normally I would do nothing, but if their living space includes my attic, this is not acceptable after what I read on your website. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Hope to hear from your soon. Thanks, Sheryl
