St. Petersburg 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. Petersburg.

I have communicated with our bat expert in St. Petersburg 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 Florida 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. Petersburg 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 Florida, 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 (813) 404-7033, 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. Petersburg 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!

Where can I get the mesh for bats? Do moth balls do anything in the removal of bats. I have small grandbabies. In the morning they are terrible and school age kids catch the bat in front of my house and I'm worried about their safety as well as mine. I don't have any money saved and my daughter just had a newborn that I have to help with because she is unemployed. Do you know of reasonable bat removal company. That disinfects the ataxic. S. Elliott

My response: You can get mesh at home depot. I can't give you a recommendation on a pro if you don't tell me where you live. Attic disinfection isn't really that important, unless there's a HUGE amount of bat guano that has been there a long time.

Dear David, I came across your wonderful website about bats in the home environment. I am wondering if you can give me some advice. I have just discovered about 6-8 bats living behind what I think is called the gable on the side of my house, but on the outside of the screen. My best friend saw them when the sun was hitting it just right while playing outside with my son. The sun had moved just enough by the time I could look that I couldn't see them. This comes at the worst possible time for me financially. I don't have the money to hire a professional. So I am wondering if I need to be very concerned with bat guano and/or do I need to get rid of them since they appear to be on the outside of my house? I appreciate your feedback. Best, Sage
