West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach.

I have communicated with our bat expert in West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach 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 561-331-0224, 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 West Palm Beach 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!

David, I have a bat infestation. I live in Southeast Florida near West Palm Beach and my victorian home is like a bat club med. I believe these are little brown bats and originally I counted 65 leaving over about 2-3 hours one evening. We have been monitoring them for awhile and the number seems to be growing. The latest count at dusk was closer to 100 bats but some seemed smaller and less deliberate in their flight...are these babies just learning to fly? If in fact they are babies does that mean the time is right for an exclusion? The bats are living in the wall under a dormer window in my attic. Starlings (nasty creatures) had pecked 2 holes and moved in but im pretty sure the bats have run them all off. Im getting 1 to 2 bats making their way into living quarters per day and unfortunately we have had a few die likely of starvation before we could find them and get them out. We are anxious to do an exclusion but i fear harming any little ones. How can i be sure the babies are flying? I will have to remove the interior wall to do my cleanup and a surprise of a bunch of baby bats flying in my face while running a saw on my attic stairs will almost guarantee me a trip to the emergency room. Thanks in advance for your help.
