Louisville 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 Louisville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Louisville 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 Kentucky 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 Louisville 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 Kentucky, 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 502-208-2461, 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 Louisville 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!

While many people have really awkward tastes as to the animals that they would be comfortable with in their houses, very few would entertain the presence of bats. Truth be said, these animals are very beneficial to us in that they can eliminate mosquitoes and other harmful insects from our houses very fast. They are also known to eat beetles that damage crops, disperse seeds and pollinate plants. Quite a handful of advantages you may say. However, this does not in any way endear them to us or make them very welcome in our property. In any case, the animals would not only be making absurd noises at night, but also destroy the buildings and make them uninhabitable due to the smell of their droppings.However, many are the times when these animals find themselves in our buildings. As many will acknowledge, bats are very stubborn about getting out of the building and therefore, you may need to be a bit more creative.

We have bats in an attic that does not have inside access. Our house is like a modified A frame structure. The bats have been here since early June (an estimate). I do not want to hurt the bats, but I cannot have them living in my house. Before they moved in I talked to my husband about building a bat house as we live in a wooded area on a lake, which seems like the perfect place for them. Anyway, we live in Kentucky and I cannot find any company on your list that is fairly close. Louisville, KY is about 20 miles one way, which is much closer than Indianapolis, IN. Can you recommend a company in the Louisville area? Any assistance you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
