I have communicated with our bat expert in Melbourne 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 Florida licensed and insured.
Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 321-710-7253, 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 Melbourne 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 David - My wife found your website last night after we discovered bats in our attic. I actually have 2 attics and it looks like they are only in the smaller one. It is segregated from the larger one. There is not much space in this attic as it is an A-Frame roof. I have attached a photo of the house, the red arrow is where they are gaining access, there is a mesh screen there but it appears to be pushed back now. The yellow line indicates roughly the attic outline, below that is a master bedroom and bathroom. At the opposite end is another gable vent with an attic fan I replaced about 2 months ago, I did not notice bats on that side of the attic. We initially thought it was mice as we heard something in the bedroom wall, yellow circle in the photo. We have access behind a half wall in the bedroom and we initially laid some mouse traps in there. Since they are not mice I guess we need to remove the traps although I am pretty sure the bats could not get in that area. Julie saw them fly out of the gable vent louvers last night and that is when I went in to the attic to inspect. There were about 10 bats hanging near the louver and at that point I backed up. Some of the bats appeared to be pretty small so I will assume they are the "pups". I highly believe this is the first time they have setup their colony here, so hopefully there are not too many yet. I assume from your write ups that we can't do much until the "pups" are able to fly. I have also been in touch with Goochland Animal Control, they would only get involved if a bat got into the living space. They recommended I call someone like yourself. Please let me know if you are available to remove the bats from my attic. My cell number is listed below with M in front of it.
