Lowell 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 Lowell.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Lowell 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 Massachusetts 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 Lowell 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 Massachusetts, 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 617-939-9710, 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 Lowell 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!

I discovered your site after doing a Google search for help with the problem I'm having with bats in my attic. First of all, I want to commend you on a very well done and informative web site. Secondly, I wanted to tell you that I followed one of the exclusion processes described on the site and used some shrub screening to cover the exit point after covering all other possible exit points. Unfortunately I did not follow your recommendation to allow the bats to leave before putting the screen up. That said, we counted 16 bats that eventually figured out how to get out of the bottom of the screening. There were about another dozen that eventually gave up trying and went back into the attic. It was interesting to see the "vigorous" attempts that the bats made to lunge through the screening or "attack" the taped edges. We watched for a couple of hours and I would say that after the first hour there was literally no activity...we did not notice any bats try to return or any that tried to leave after. When I went to look this morning it was already fairly light out and again, I did not see any activity. So my question is, what if anything should I do now and should I be concerned that there were no bats flying around this morning? I plan to leave the screening up for a few more days unless you have another recommendation. I can also send you a picture of the exit point if that would help. One final point... The bats are only in a void between the brick and particle board sheathing and as far as I can tell cannot get into the attic so all of the guano and urine are essentially outside of the house which is good. It still stinks quite a bit though when you get anywhere near their exit point! Any information you can provide to help me with this would be helpful and greatly appreciated!
