bats in attic removal pickering


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.

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 bat cone 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.

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.

Those who come in indirect contact or direct contact with bats can seriously fall ill. Urgent action is thus required when bats are suspected.

One-Way-Doors are a tunnel-like contraption that has a door that swings outwards. Once the animal passes through the door, it cannot get back in. It gets locked out and vacates the area. This is completely ethical and harmless.

When Do Bats Have Babies?

What To Do With A Bat in The House?

When you suspect that you have a bat in the house in another room, do not open the door. If you have pets and/or children keep them at a safe distance and do not let them go near. Do not attempt to remove the bat yourself for two reasons. Bats are a protected wildlife animal in the province of Ontario and bats can be highly erratic when provoked which can lead them to attack to defend their territory.
