While at your property, Timber Meadows bat control will identify the entry points bats are using to access your home and make recommendations to exclude them permanently. HOW THEY GOT INSIDE: Bats can squeeze through extremely small gaps - 3/8 of an inch. Nuisance bats suspected of having rabies should always be left for professionals to remove.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. Can I kill the bats with some sort of poison or fumigant? 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.  Female bats give birth to only one baby bat per year, and raise it well. 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. You're still reading this?
