Riverside 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 Riverside.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Riverside 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 Riverside 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 951-666-2555, 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 Riverside 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!

David, We bought a house this past November. No signs of a bat until today. Working in the basement my husband removed a peg board from a damp cement basement room. It must have disturbed a bat because an hour later there was a bat flying around the living room and our 1 year olds playroom. Do you know what species is prevalent in southern California? I went to get a blanket and broom to bat it down and it disappeared. We have no idea if it flew upstairs, or if it's in the playroom which is the last room I saw it flying around. It's a two-story home so we have our bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. It's scary with a one year old and a dog. Will a bat bite a child or a dog, or us while sleeping. We can't find it. Is there a good possbility there is a colony. There are additional peg boards which we felt best not to remove until we know what we should do. Any advice you can give us would be appreciated. And as soon as possible. Seems bats like basements in Minnesota, not only attics. Is there a certain bat prevalent to Riverside CA area? Thank you.
