HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. The most common species in North America that people may find in a colony on their property are the Little Brown Bat and the Mexican Free-tailed bat. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely. We can now safely remove bat droppings, bird droppings, and other animal waste accumulations from structures. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home. Bats are extremely beneficial for insect control, as they offer an environmentally friendly method of insect control instead of using poisons and chemicals.
The bat exclusion process requires several steps.

BAT BIOLOGY: North America is home to many species of bats, but these are the three most common nuisance (colonizing) species in the US: First is the Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus) which is common in most of the US, especially the more northward states.
