Many home owners have bat problems in the attic and in the house. You can identify if you have a bat problem by scratching noises from the attic or a bat in the house.

Bats enter the home through loose siding, roof transitions, gable vents, holes in the chimney, ridge vents, siding transitions and any other opening 1/2' or larger.  You should evict bat from your home any months other than June and July. That's maternity season. End of summer is the best time to exclude them and other seasons may take longer depending on the weather. To evict the bats you will need to install a one way valve and seal the entire home to keep them out of other areas.

Bat extermination is a term many people may think to use when looking for a bat removal company.  This term is outdated by many years. We do not use poisons or pesticides like a pest control company. Bats in Michigan are both state and federally protected. Bats are considered endangered. Fines for killing bats in Michigan may result in a fine for up to $5,000. Getting rid of bats is a process and no sprays or repellents can be used to exclude bats.

Bat Trapping

  • How do you trap bats that are in the attic?

  • How to trap a bat in the house?

  • Is bat trapping a effective way to get rid of bats?

You may consider bat trapping as one method for removal. It's natural to assume bat trapping is a way for control and removal. Trapping is only good for trapping other nuisance wildlife such as raccoon's, skunks, coyotes, etc. We don't use bat traps when getting rid of bats.  Years ago companies would find your entry point, hook up a 50 lb bat box to the opening and wait for the bats to fly into the box. Once the bats are released they would just come back. Now it is illegal to trap bats.
