Providence 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 Providence.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Providence 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 Rhode Island 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 Providence 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 Rhode Island, 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 401-223-4430, 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 Providence 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 David, I have a fairly new home (about 10 years old) and have lived here 9 years. Yesterday about dusk I thought I saw something fly through my darkened lower level family room but my eyesight is not all that great. About an hour later I was up one level in the bedroom and sure enough a bat flew through it. I was able to close the door and knock him/her down gently with a towel. It latched onto the towel, I rolled the towel up and released the bat outside where it promptly flew away. I live in Pennsylvania and the temperature has been way below normal until yesterday when it reached about 40. I'm kind of freaked out how a bat ever got into the house to begin with. I did a visual check on the outside of the house today and didn't really see anything out of the normal but plan to call some type of professional tomorrow to get a ladder and go up into the attic. BTW I live in Providence RI so I'm not certain if there are any specialist around the area. Is it "normal" to have bats this time of year? Is it possible to have just one? I'm wondering how it managed to get to the basement? I know you can't answer these questions not seeing the house but I'm kind of grasping at straws here. Until yesterday I never even saw a bat. It actually was pretty big. Thanks for any information that you can provide.
