Memphis 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 Memphis.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Memphis 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 Tennessee 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 Memphis 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 Tennessee, 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 901-457-5919, 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 Memphis 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 live in Memphis TN and am trying to get information how to control bats from our Tennessee vacation house and also opossum (comadrejas) at our vacation home in Buenos Aires and also at the beach house. As you can see, we are surrounded by wildlife and we have nothing against them but as you will surely understand we have to do something to make them leave. We have contacted several companies here in Memphis but did not work. Our home and also the beach house have high roofs and many places to find the way into the house or on the roof. They also injected a product that turns solid later and did not work. It also stuffed places that shouldn't be stuffed, like water exit... Your web helped me a lot to realize that there are no repellents or sound devices etc that work...and that I have to contact a pro but the problem is that I am not finding a reliable pro... Thanks very much David for sharing your experience and I really appreciate your work since you protect wildlife! I love wildlife but understand that many people don't like the bats or comadrejas coming around... What I hate is the excrements and odor... mainly in summer time. You will surely understand Best regards from Memphis.

Sorry to bother. I just had some bats removed. After exclusion, there were still some bats. So they forced them out with water and by manually removing the last few. I feel badly due to it is getting cold the next few nights and they are still crawling around in the yard. They should be able to fly but aren't I'm assuming due to being wet or traumatized. Anything we can do for the bats ? I wanted them out ... not to die in the cold. Thanks for your valuable time.
