Lansing 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 Lansing.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Lansing 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 Lansing 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.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 517-827-9072, 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 Lansing 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, I've noticed a lot of droppings down my windows and your pictures have just confirmed bats poo !anyway we have bats flying around our house in the country every night, our major problem is we now can't go in to a room upstairs with out been knocked out with a really bad smell, could this be bats in our attic, I don't hear anything in there but they are around so might they live in our attic,is it possible? what can I do, please?

I read through your web page, good info... But how do you suggest removing bats from an old barn? Sealing off the old barn is not an option due to cost. I'm tired of cleaning bat guano off equipment, and the floor. We're also planning a barn wedding in the fall. Any ideas what to do? I did put up a bat box on the outside of the barn, not sure if any have moved in yet?

Hi, We just moved into our home at the end of June and just this past Saturday discovered that we have bats getting into our attic. Unfortunately, the timing hasn't been great, as we found this and were packing for vacation at the same time. We come back to the cities tomorrow early afternoon and would like to get this taken care of immediately. We don't think there are a lot of them in there, but not sure. Is there any way that you would be able to come look at it and let us know what we need to have done? And can you give me some kind of idea how much something like this costs?
