Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Bat Exclusion?

Bat Exclusion is conducted by positioning one-way devices at key locations to allow bats to exit the structure. The one-way devices allow the bats to exit, but prevents them from re-entering. We perform Bat Exclusions in a safe and humane manner, while sealing up all secondary areas to ensure your structure remains bat free.  Bats help control insects and are therefore protected. However, we do not want bats in our homes, warehouses, buildings or any other structures causing damage.


When do I contact a bat control professional?

You should contact a bat control expert at the first sign of infestation (more than one bat encountered inside more than once a year, or physical signs of bat guano). This way, you’ll be sure to have the problem under control before the bats can cause any more damage to your property or health.


How do bats get in my house?

It isn't difficult for bats to infest your house. In fact, even a gap as small as ¼ inch acts as an open door for bats.  Often homeowners will notice bats after a roofing job when seals are removed.  That's why, during the very first visit, the exterior of your home is intensely inspected. We locate active entry-points bats are using to gain entry to your home. We then install bat control devices over these active entry-points.


Why do bats leave the house?

Bats natural behavior dictates that they will leave your house at dusk to eat insects and get water. While they leave the house to feed on insects they will leave through the exclusion devices, not allowing access back in.  When the bats return they will search the exterior of your house in an effort to find a new entry-point with no success. 


Can I just buy a Bat House?

Bat Houses can be an effective way to house bats on your property but are often a second option to your larger house.  Your house will contain more warmth and protection from the elements.  If a bat house is on the property before the exclusion service, it is common that they will move into that house for a period of time. 



We carry an Industry Standard 2 year warranty on our work.  We’ve often found that once a bat has been excluded from a house, they will make return trips for the first year or two.  Once bats can’t get into your house, they will find a new place to live.  Unfortunately, some of our customers have hired other companies offering warranties of 10+ years (even lifetime), only to not get call backs when they found out they still have bats.  We do the job right from the beginning until the end, including follow-up, and don’t try to trick people with a false sense of security.  There are commonly too many environmental and structural changes to make a warranty that long unrealistic.  I’m happy to say our success rate continues to be 100% with our customers with no call backs (knock on wood)!!
