Orlando 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 Orlando.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Orlando 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 Orlando 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 407-232-9287, 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 Orlando 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 don't know if you can help or maybe at least point me in the right direction. 3 years ago we had bats getting in to the inside of our house. We finally found out where the were getting in. I sat and watched one evening and lost count somewhere in the 40's at how many bats came out that night. They were going into the vent in the side of the house at the peak of the roof which is where the chimney attached to the house. On the back side of the chimney there was a hole in the brick work where they were entering the chimney oing down the space in the chimney and coming out the vents in the fireplace. Anyway we did research cuz at the time we had know idea there were people like you out there. We made and excursion device and made sure that it was a time where there wouldn't be babies and we got rid of them. My husband "repaired" the hole in the chimney and we went the rest of the year bat free and the next bat free. Well the beginning of this year guess who's back so we made the excursion device again and it did its job. Now my problem is what they left behind down in the chimney. It is so bad the chimney is taped up and can not be used. I have tried to call chimney repair people but so far all they want to do is spray a sealant over it and I don't think that will work. I'm sure there is way to much in there to just seal it up. So if you have any ideas or if you guys do it or know anybody who can do it we need to get that stuff out of there. The bats are gone we just need the clean up. It's not just simply down the chimney it's in the free space between the firebox, piping and the actual brick. So it has no access except from the roof down through the top we would have to remove concrete and piping from top or cut an access in the back lower part of chimney. I at this point am willing to remove the whole chimney my husband however is not. We live in Winter Park, FL. Please let me know if you can help or have any ideas as to what we should do. Thanks
