Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Salt Lake City 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 Utah 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 Salt Lake City 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 Utah, 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 801-438-6043, 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 Salt Lake City 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!

My friend and I have just discovered bats coming from a vent outside the building we use as a church. We counted 75 of them and then quit counting. My concern is this...the owner has/or is going to engage an "exterminator" to handle the problem. I'm not immediately involved in this, other than reporting it to the pastor so don't know if he meant what he said or if he's contacted a specialist to remove the bats. The question I have is bat removal overseen by a gov't agency and what can I do if the bats are simply killed and removed? I'm an animal lover...all kinds of animals, even bats! I even relocate snakes that come on my property. And to think these bats will simply be killed rather than relocated makes my blood boil!! This situation has just come to light in the past 2 days, so hopefully your answer can reach me before anything is done to the bats. Thank you for all you do to protect people from wildlife, but especially to protect wildlife from people! The pastor asked the owner of the building for the name of the exterminator so we could get a time line for when we can go back in the building. He was told to pack up and get out. I don't know if the owner is even planning on doing anything about the bats! There is another business in that building!! What steps should we take to assure people are not being exposed to the guano from these bats?
