Richmond 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 Richmond.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Richmond 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 California 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 Richmond 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 California, 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 925-478-4254, 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 Richmond 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!

Hello, I'm going straight to my attic to investigate tomorrow because I suspect I may have an infestation. In the mean time before I leave for work, I'm going to take a photo of where I think the bats are entering. do you mind if I send you the pic to get your thoughts on the matter? The aluminum siding is brown under these slits (i guess vents) on the front of my house. My house was built in the 40s and I have barely lived in it a year so I thought smell was from previous owners pets, etc. Also, it has been a very snowy and frigid winter here in Richmond CA so could not even guess how they have survived up there if they are hibernating.. Thank you.

Hi David, just wanted to take the time to thank you for your informative website. It is quite lovely and has given me a renewed perspective of the little brown bats that live in my attic (soon to be living in the bat house that I bought from the organization of bat conservation--at least I hope they will be, when all is said and done!). do have a question regarding the spray that you referred to on your site, that breaks down the biological matter remaining after the clean up of the bat feces. Where can I get this? Also, what is the best type of screening that I should use for the bat valve/excluder? Is this something I can purchase at a Menards?I would never purposely kill an animal and am thankful and relieved that there are things that I, myself can do to humanely encourage these fragile little creatures to seek refuge elsewhere, but still close to my house*:) happy Please keep up the good work that you are doing with your great information and compassion for bats. You have inspired me to become a bat lover myself!
