San Jose 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 Jose.

I have communicated with our bat expert in San Jose 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 Jose 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 415-881-4347, 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 Jose 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!

San Jose wildlife control company bat reader email:

I have recently discovered that I have Bats in my attic space. Searching for information I found your website and contacted a company you listed that led me to write this message. Using the questions you suggested I was informed that a chemical treatment called Ropel would be the a good place to start. Bat exclusion would be tried if necessary but I was told this 1x treatment has worked well in the past for this problem. I did not see this mentioned anywhere I looked and your site suggested that chemicals were not the preferred method for dealing with bats in an attic and my research confirmed this. My question is do you agree and do you have any additional information about this contractor (Wild Pest Catchers listed on your site) or method or a current referral in the San Jose area? I would appreciate any help you could provide and hope this feedback helps. Thank You, Mr. Scott San Jose

Hi, I found your website. We are in California. We have had a bat problem on our patio for about 3 years now. They hang every night in our 20 ft high eaves. I have done a lot of research and made calls here in California, with not very much hope for getting rid of them. We have tried nets, they just move to another location on the patio, which is quite large. I clean up the quana every day. We were wondering if you have ever had success with bird strips on beams to keep the bats from hanging. So far, they do not seem to be in our house. They are here from april to about oct. thanks so much. shelley
