Scranton 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 Scranton.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Scranton 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 Pennsylvania 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 Scranton 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 Pennsylvania, 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 570-904-8590, 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 Scranton 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!

Hi David, My name is Lorena and I found your contact information through your website. My husband and I just closed on our home yesterday here in Scranton and today...kept hearing noises coming from the kitchen. We also noticed droppings on the floor of the kitchen. We spoke to prior owners and they think it might be a bird...but I'm also worried it could be a bat. They mentioned that many "little" black birds live in their chimney April-October....and if the exhaust is left open they will occasionally fly in the house (we have now closed exhaust). The bird/bat/flying animal sounds in distress and despite our best efforts, my husband and I are unable to help the animal make it's way out. It seems to have flown to top of kitchen cabinets and down into an open stuck inside. Any assistance with this situation would be greatly appreciated. It seems like we have to investigate chimney and probably have mesh placed on rooftop at chimney opening to prevent this from happening again. Does your company also provide this service? I realize its the weekend....but we would greatly appreciate your help. I left you a message today on business phone listed on your website...but my cell number is an out of area number. Just wanted to confirm that we do live here in Scranton PA. Please let me know when you would be available to help us out. Thank you. Lorena

Hi David: We live outside of Scranton Pennsylvania. We have a large home and discovered a bat flying around two night ago and it was back last night. We have lived in this home for 26 years and this is the first time we have seen bats. I have read much of the information on your website and learned a lot. I googled bat removal and several companies came up. Can you give me more information on the company you recommend: Ace and why you recommend them? Thank You.
