Proper Bat Removal

Hi my name is Brendan Mangnitz and I am the owner of 24/7 Wildlife Control. I have been in business now on my own for nearly five years and I have been in this industry for close to 10 years working with friends, family and other companies while learning, training and understanding the wildlife removal & nuisance animal control industry. I started off by graduating from the University of South Florida with my Business Management degree. After this degree I got into the field of wildlife control because I knew there was a big issue with bats getting into people's residences and I realized that there are not many professional. I wanted to be one of the most professional bat removal companies and bat trapping companies out there.

Professional bat trapping generally involves the trapping company to initially come out to your home and perform a free inspection and evaluation in order to determine that you are having an issue with bats or that you may have bats in the attic. During this free inspection and evaluation, the professional wildlife and bat removal company will get in the attic and take a look at everything that's going on and identify whether or not you do have bats in your attic. We will look for bat poop and we will also identify the bat poop based on smell and even take a look at and listen for the sounds of the bats. Once we are in the attic and it is confirmed that you are having an issue with bats, a professional bat removal company will then get on the roof and walk the exterior of the property to identify the areas that the bats are using to get into your home.

Bait used to catch bats will depend on the age and maturity level of the bats. What I recommend for people trying to do this themselves, or if they want to make sure that the company they used is doing a good job, is to look for certain signs with bat trapping. You can look at the picture of the bat trapping to the left. This is a live bat trap. I put the bait for the bats in the back of the trap. The idea is that the bat will smell the bait; Bat bait will smell good to the bat and the bat will enter the trap and the door and will then close inward. The bat can now not get out of the trap. This is humane because the trap will not kill or harm the bat.

Bat poison is very dangerous. You never want to poison bats; always trap the bat. There are no effective deterrents. In my opinion, for bat removal the best way to get bats is to trap them by using a bait such as cat food. Cat food is a good bait for bat trapping but every now and then you may accidentally catch a cat. If you catch a cat in your bat trap you should open up the door and let the cat out and reset the trap. Marshmallows and oatmeal pie cookies or a great bait idea and a certain trick for catching bats. This bat bait is attractive to more juvenile and baby bats; it's sweeter and they generally seem to enjoy it.

Customers ask me all the time how to get rid of bats permanently and the simple answer is once you catch the bats and you know that there are no more bats in the attic, you need to close off the access points to prevent more bats from coming back. This is called an exclusion; you definitely want to hire a professional bat removal company to perform exclusion work and bat removal of the home in order to guarantee that no more bats come back.
