San Bernardino 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 San Bernardino.

I have communicated with our bat expert in San Bernardino 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 San Bernardino 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 San Bernardino 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!

Sir, I have had some bats come into the house from time to time. It's a hundred year old house in San Bernardino so i'm sure it has some holes. About once a year i will get one coming into my living spaces. Rare enough to think it wasn't really a nuisance. It usually happens in the warmer parts of spring to fall. Well had one last night and it's the middle of January. I thought they hibernated through the winter, don't they? And while i know it's not a good thing to have them in the house, with the negative temps we saw here in WI over the past week, i thought it inhumane to set it free outside. Back in the attic it went. How do you deal with them in the winter if you do happen to find one in your house?

Hi David, Great website and very informative. I found a single bat in my attic last night which cause me to research how to deal with it. In 5 years here there has never been any evidence of a bat in the house, although they are all over at night spring/summer and fall. I'm a big bat fan, but would prefer to not have them in my house. I'm trying to ID the bat, and I did get a picture. Looks exactly like the one you have on the back of your neck in a photo on your site. Not particularly large. I'm also now worried that where there is one there are likely more. Being January in Northern San Bernardino County, guessing there is no way I can do any exclusion now? That's a 2x6 he (she) is sitting on, 5-1/2" across. Looks mostly all black to me?? Anyway, any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
