Wilmington 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 Wilmington.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Wilmington 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 Delaware 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 Wilmington 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 Delaware, 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 302-482-8408, 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 Wilmington 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 there, I am renting a duplex and I think my property managers are trying to get some bats out of the attic/walls and I am concerned that it is not a safe time of year to be dong so (and I do not know what measures they are taking). About a week ago they put moth balls up there hoping the smell would naturally drive them away, I complained about the smell and that is how I found out what they were up to. I was just wondering what officials I might want to contact to give them help or advice on what to do. I live in a small Delaware town and it's a pretty small city (Wilmington DE is the closest bigger city). Thank you very much for any help!

David, I have been trying to get my landlord to get rid of the bats in my attic for more than two years now. They have sent the same company now twice, and are expected to be here again this evening to get rid of the bats. They say they are simply going to spray repellent and seal the entry ways. According to everything I have read this is WRONG! Is there an authority, in Delaware that I can report this to. I know this procedure is not okay. What do I do? Thank you

Good morning David, As a volunteer bat rehabilitator and conservationist, I must say you have pretty good info on your website. Some of the stuff we find when researching humane bat exclusions for the public are horrific, but your site is an exception.
