Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Minneapolis 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 Minnesota 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 Minneapolis 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 Minnesota, 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 612-503-8440, 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 Minneapolis 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!

We live in a rural area near Minneapolis and was wondering if there was anyway to buy some live bats to put in our area to control insects. I wasn't sure if after you caught them what you done with them. Please write back and let me know. Thanks for your time, Steve

Hello: My husband and I have been dealing with 3 bats for the past 10 years at night dipping into our swimming pool. We even had on in the middle of day several years ago when it was in the 100's come down into our pool while we where in it. But we sure would like to enjoy our pool at night at least once with out something zooming by us. Could you please help?? Thank you, Denise

David, We live in MN and friends of ours have had a terrible bat problem for years. They have had commercial BAT removers for several years removing and sealing their house, against the bats. They think that has solved the bats getting into their house, but now the bats hang on the outside of their house near their entrance and now the dropping on their deck is a big problem. Is there anything they can do to stop the bats from hanging onto and sleeping on the side of their house? They have wood siding. Thanking you in advance, Betty
