Nashville 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 Nashville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Nashville 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 Nashville 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 615-814-8501, 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 Nashville 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!

Good morning Dave, I have an issue with Bats in our attic. It has never been a major issue but now we have the dropping right outside our back door and I just recently noticed dropping inside the attic (which is a bedroom to my nephew). We know where they are coming in and out but need the service of getting them out. If you could please let me know your process of looking at the structure, cost, and procedure to remove. From my research I know its roosting time but I would like to get this handled before they hibernate.

Hi I am having my HVAC system replaced and in the process I found that I have about half a dozen bats that are camping out in my attic vent. The good thing is that I have a screen over the vent on the inside of the attic. They appear to between the slats for the gable vent and the screen. I have a few pics that I took and you can see that there is some bat crap around the area. My question is that if I can get some more screen on the outside as well and keep the bats out, is this amount of guano something I should be concerned about? It doesn't look like much but I don't want to get sick either. Also, what can I use to clean and disinfect it other than my Dyson vacuum? And is there any type of spray that I can spray the area with to keep them from wanting to come back?

We're hearing sounds in the attic like scratching. We inspected attic and see small little droppings from mice but none of the guano. Do they sleep under the insulation ? We occasionally do get a bat in the house during the summer months. Our neighbors do have bat houses. And sometimes the grandkids will leave the garage door open in the evening and thought thats how they were getting in. If we pull back the insulation will they start flying if they are there? And as I read is this the time we will need to put up the screens if we do have bats ? We have never noticed any foul smell or urine. And inspecting the roof did not see any droppings. We do live in a rural area. Any advice would be helpful. Angie
