Professional Wildlife Control For Bat Colony Removal and Attic Repair


Bat proofing involves the use of a bat exclusion system that filters bats out from the attic space or walls of the structure before repair of the exterior can be performed to assure the prevention of returning bat colonies roosting in the attic. Our one-way bat control exclusion doors provide an exit for all bats but does not allow any access for them to return. It is impossible to retrieve all bats by hand since they typically will drop down the wall cavities of your home to find shelter and warmth. A professional bat control plan is the only true way to remove the entire colony of bats and to guarantee they can not return. Bats are very territorial and if all access points are not repaired and closed off properly it is likely the colony will return to roost in the attic once again.
