St. Paul 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 St. Paul.

I have communicated with our bat expert in St. Paul 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 Minnesota 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 St. Paul 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 Minnesota, 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 651-691-4136, 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 St. Paul 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, I'm a Minnesota resident looking for bat advice. My room is in my basement with no windows or ceiling. There's about a half a foot of space behind the paneling. A bat flew into my room from only God knows where and I don't know what to do. It entered there on Wednesday night, it's Saturday night now and I haven't seen it since. We called the health department and they said to keep all doors shut and to just keep an eye on it. Yeah, I'm a regular Lou Diamond Phillips. Thanks, health department. This is our first bat in the 15 years of living where I am. We're a little freaked. I've switched rooms since. There's no water supply for it and only so many bugs in the walls. I'm worried the bat is already dead or is going to die before it shows itself again. How am I going to get rid of it if I can't even reach it or find it?

Can a person be bitten by a bat and not know it? My daughter in law found a bat flying around the house this morning....and panic ensued. She was told by her pediatrician to go to the ER if the bat had not been gotten to test for Rabies. She and my 17 month old grandson. Her friends were telling her that they could have been bitten at night and not known it. I live in Saint Paul MN. we don't panic about bats. We shoo them out and look for the entry points to close it off to more occurances. We find bats to be useful for the most part. The hysteria evidenced by the pediatrician and her friends seemed unwarranted and I went to VA and bats to see what the excitement is all about. I still haven't found it. Thanks for any help. Deb

My response: In America, "cover thy ass medicine" means that no one will have the balls to tell you that you're 99.9% safe. Including me! Good luck!
