Bat Extermination and Exterminating Analysis

Click here for a nationwide list of 100's of professional bat control experts!

The term bat extermination isn't really a fair term. Bats aren't like insect pests, and they aren't really exterminated. An exterminator is someone who kills something, typically insect pests, often through the use of poison sprays. Bats are not dealt with in this manner. You wouldn't call an insect killing extermination company to take care of a bat problem. If you need bats removed from your home or building or attic, you need a professional wildlife control expert with experience in bats to solve the issue, not a bat exterminating company.



This is a photo of a bats roosting in an attic. They should be safely removed from the building, and allowed to live on as the beneficial creatures they are. Once a professional removes them, it will stop the problems that the animal was causing for the property, problems such as noise, sanitation issues, biohazard, and the discomfort they can cause. Wildlife management and control is different from extermination, so if you want a pro to come and take care of your bat situation, call one of the experts listed. Please do not hire anyone posing as a bat extermination company. They are likely operating illegally, and such a practice is silly, ineffective, and unethical. Exterminators know how to spray poison and kill - there's no such thing as bat poison, not legal, and not registered. For more information, also read my pages about the ineffectiveness of bat repellents and bat trapping.

Why is it illegal to exterminate bats with fumigant or poison? It is illegal to kill bats because most species are necessary to the environment and reproduce too slowly to repopulate the roost quickly. If you kill bats, insect populations would surge and wipe out plants. You might not realize it, but because of how intimidated people are by bats, killing them would be common practice if it were allowed. There is no reason to kill bats. If you have a large population in your home or building, the best thing you can do is exclude them. By installing a one way door on the building bats are able to leave but not return. They are forced to choose a new roost site. The main complication to this has to do with baby bats. Roosting clusters are often female bats getting ready to give birth. It is advisable to wait until the young are big enough to leave the building too. Waiting will mean that you do not have frantic mother bats outside and starving baby bats inside. Of all the nuisance animals that enter your home, the bat is one of the least destructive. It is only their waste material that can cause potential issues.
