South Bend 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 South Bend.

I have communicated with our bat expert in South Bend 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 Indiana 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 South Bend 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 Indiana, 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 574-376-2930, 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 South Bend 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!

We have a quadraplex in the South Bend IN area that we bought in December. We had an inspection and the inspector brought to our attention that there were bat droppings in the attic. There was a new roof installed last year and all of the holes where they were entering have been closed. He did not notice any active infestation. We would like to get an estimate to have the droppings removed properly from the attic space. Please respond and let us know when you are available for an appointment. Weekends are ideal and also after 5:00 p.m.

On your list of professionals, Ft Wayne, In is not a link. I need to find someone in my area. I don't know who to look for. My wife just had a stroke and was released last week. Came home to two bats in the house. Then one two days ago. I have 3-4 soffet vents that have fell off. So that's how they got into attic. Its going to be difficult, because the attic is small. Part of the roof line is the ceilings of the upstairs bedrooms. Any advice on who I might contact would be appreciated. I have enough to worry about besides bats. Plus I have cat's. Don't want them to contract any disease.
