bat removal from attic


There are some spaces that bats favor over the other and one of these spaces happens to be isolated from the rest of the house, namely the attic. The reason why the attic remains such a perfect spot for bats is that they need two basic requirements. Shelter and seclusion. This is because bats are classified as nocturnal animals who are active at night but inactive by day. The shelter seems to be the perfect combination of the two considering that the attic is rarely visited. The relative stable temperatures during extreme heat or cold make it a perfect shelter away
from predators to rear their young.

Bats can also choose unconventional spots to remain tucked away from humans. In most cases, however, this is not intentional. Younger bats, who can’t fly often find themselves stuck in
between the narrow openings. To free them, specialists are needed with protective gear as they might or attack.

Big Brown Bat

The Big Brown Bat is a protected species in Ontario. They can be recognized by their golden- brown fur, black wings, their short snout, and their pointy long ears. They grow up to about 13cm in length. They eat a steady diet of mostly insects like mealworms, cockroaches, beetles, and flies. The Big Brown Bat is a nocturnal creature meaning that it is inactive during the day and active during the night. One of the signs during nighttime can be rustles, screeches, and thumps indicating that they are active. The bats are often found in colonies and generally pose no threat. They hibernate during the colder months in the winter and give birth around spring. It is important to note that they cannot be removed from homes during specific times of the month. Call our customer service for more information. 

Small Brown Bat

Just like its other counterpart, the Small Brown Bat is also a protected bat species in Ontario thus has certain limitations as to how and when to remove it. The Small Brown Bat can be recognized by its short snout golden brown-reddish fur, black wings, and pointy long ears just like the Big Brown Bat. Although very similar in appearance, the Small Brown Bat just as the name implies is smaller in size and can measure up to 9 cm in length. It is also nocturnal and survives on a diet of various insects as well.

Professional Bat Removal Service


To understand the situation that our customers are in, we conduct an exterior inspection as well as an interior inspection when needed. This allows us to determine the exact location of the entry points that the bats use to get inside the property and effectively seal it. In most cases, bats will use one entry point to enter and exit the property. The technician will also make notes of additional weak points and will relay this information to the homeowner.

The Bat Cone

The technician will seal all the other entry points located during the initial inspection. After the main entry point is located, the technician will mount a cone-like device angled at a downward angle. Once the bat passes through the cone, it makes it impossible for the bat to re-enter due to the hard plastic material. The bat will then leave the area for good.


After it is determined that the bats vacated the property, the technicians will begin with the last step in the process, the exclusion. The One-Way-Door will be removed and the entry point will be sealed with flashing made out of enforced aluminum plates. This prevents other wildlife animals such as raccoons or squirrels from coming in and taking advantage of the weak spot.

The Problem With Bats

bat feces removal hamilton

Bat Odour

Bats are wild animals and just like any type of wild animal they leave behind foul smells. The bat is no exception to this. They will turn any space upside down in a short moment. Bats leave behind feces and urine at an unimaginable amount. It is because they eat, sleep, and wake up  there. Bats will always choose a secluded area that is guaranteed to have no ventilation. Because of this, any space that they inhabit automatically becomes a danger to personal health. To get rid of the stench, the space has to be deodorized by experts wearing PPE

Property Damage

Bats do not seem to do much other than hang around but do not be fooled. These bats do
enough damage behind closed doors that their combined damages can easily rack up to a
couple of thousand dollars. Bats can cause materials to deteriorate, insolation to be useless, and items to be unusable.

Health Concerns

Bats have the ability to carry multiple transferable diseases without ever displaying symptoms themselves. It is because of this that bats are often called vector species of disease which act more or less than a reservoir. Those who come in indirect contact or direct contact with bats can get seriously sick. Urgent action is thus required when bats are suspected.

Bat Concerns

Bats are dangerous animals and can attack people and pets in an instant who it feels threatened or attacked. If you do hear something resembling a bat, do not come closer for inspection nor open any windows and doors to let it fly out as its behavior is highly unpredictable and may result in injury

When you do see a bat in your house, you can readily assume that you are dealing with either one of the two bat species: The Big Brown Bat and the Small Brown Bat. These two bats can be recognized by their golden- reddish fur, short snout, black wings, and long pointy ears. These two bats are harmless. The Small Brown Bat is categorized as an endangered species under Schedule 1 under the Species of Risk Act. Causing bats harm, in general, will lead to hefty fines this is why bat cases should be left to professionals who have the right tools and knowledge to deal with bats
