Miami 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 Miami.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Miami 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.
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 Miami 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 Florida, 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 786-574-3995, 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 Miami 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 ran into your name through a Google search and hoped that you could give me some advise. I used to live in Miami FL, but currently I'm working and living as an expat in Vietnam. My apartment is on the 15th and top floor in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon). I have a covered but open area where i hang my laundry to dry. This is similar to a long and narrow balcony but with only one of four sides open and exposed to the outside world. I've only seen one bat on one occasion and he was large. Enough to put a chill down my back. Cat sized. He hung from my ceiling light and has continued to leave a mess on my drying clothes 2-4 times a week. Here, caught, I'm sure it would not be difficult to find someone who would love to make stew or kabob. This though, is not my intention. Can you give me some solid advise of coaxing the bat(s) to move on. I've left the light on. Played music. Sprayed lemon. Rearranged. Nothing has helped. If I were to remove the light fixture, there are many other places for it to hang. I'm sure this would not help. Unfortunately, due to Apt and city codes, I can not net off this area. Locals say that a bat hanging around is a sign of coming success and good luck. I love animals but their size scares the hell out of me. Attached is a photo of it's mess. I will try to get a picture of the bat itself tonight. Thanks, Lathan

Hey David, First off, thanks so much for providing this resource for people. It's really awesome to come across people who care so much about that they do and are willing to share their knowledge with others. I also really appreciate your humanitarian approach. Anyway, a home inspection recently revealed that we supposedly have squirrels and possibly other animals in the attic, as well as a colony of bats. My real estate agent is squeamish and demanded we call Wildlife Control immediately. She said it's the only company she's ever worked for. You recommend a different Miami professional: Wildlife Services. I was wondering what you could tell me about each company. I am reluctant to hire anyone because I know companies take advantage of (especially) women, assuming they don't understand what's going on and will pay whatever is asked of them to make the problem go away. I'm planning to go up there tonight and see for myself what's going on. Hopefully I'll have a better idea of what I'm dealing with then. I've got a respirator and a safety suit, so hopefully -- with your awesome site -- I should have some idea of what I'm dealing with. Thanks so much!
