Oklahoma City 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 Oklahoma City.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Oklahoma City 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 Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma City 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 Oklahoma, 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 405-437-1701, 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 Oklahoma City 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 - Thanks for your very informative website. I live on the western slope of Oklahoma City and just figured out I have a bat problem (I suspected airborne mice previously...actually had no idea until my son said bat guano looks like mouse poop). I will probably call the professional in Tulsa OK but also am going to use my night vision scope to see if maybe it's a single or limited entry point. Once the bats leave at night can the entry be sealed? If a 1 way device is required is that available to the lay person? and finally, it get's really cold in Oklahoma. what do bats do in the winter? is there a maternity/hibernation window of opportunity? (I know you didn't really invite these kinds of questions.. but just giving it a shot... thanks)

My response: You can't just seal at night, because they don't all leave at the same time. Hibernation or migration depends on whether the attic has enough winter heat to survive.

I have a stone fireplace with a wood stove insert. I live in Oklahoma City. My dog found the bat just before dark yesterday, I have only seen one but I'm sure there are probably more. Do you know of someone near me. I didn't see anyone close on your list. I am on a tight budget, can you tell me a ballpark as to what I am looking at. Is it too early in the season now to do anything? I am on soc sec disability. So I can't afford much? I Don't know what to do. Can you help me please?
