Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Philadelphia 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 Pennsylvania 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 Philadelphia 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 Pennsylvania, 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 610-927-7792, 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 Philadelphia 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 live in Ringing Rocks, Pa and I believe I have bats wanting to live in my home.( or already living in my home) I have a partially enclosed deck and I have noticed animal droppings that resemble a mouse, but when I have poured baking soda out on my deck there is no tracks, so I can only now believe that it must be caused from bats. I do notice that on the wood panels that I have on the walls outside it appears that there is silver or gray like fur that has gotten caught on such panels. I am very worried about all of this since I do have children and I do not want to alarm them but it is very difficult since, I to am frightened by this whole new unwanted situation. I know winter is coming and I am in desperate need to resolve this as soon as possible. Now, I am afraid to even go into my attic. Could you please tell me what the charges would be for you to evaluate my situation then of course give me an estimate on what it would cost to resolve the problem? I so very much appreciate your time and consideration in all of this. Toni

I read your article and found it very informative. I currently have noises in my attic in the early morning and early afternoon, I live in Philly PA and it has gotten to freezing temperatures rather quickly recently. Set up three mouse traps with bait and no mouse was found. I never hear any vocal noise just a light scratching generally in the same area. We gutted the bathroom before we moved in this house and pulled installation down and two bats were hibernating underneath. After living in the house about two years later about was flying in our living room and then we found another one in the garage another occasion. I don't see any evidence of droppings inside the attic or smell any distinctive odor. My question is it's probably safe to say it's bats other than another animal based on the history? Also is it a good idea to leave the bats alone until spring? I don't want to hurt them, I just want to make sure me and my family are not going to get sick after living here three years with them. Do you happen to know if they still urinate and defecate while in hibernation? I wish I could determine if in fact it for sure is a bat, I have never noticed any entering or exiting my home before. It seems almost impossible to bat proof your whole house based on the tiny spaces they can fit through, so if you're going to spend a lot of money and getting rid of something how do you guarantee they won't come back in? Thanks for listening, any advice would be truly appreciated!
