Assess and Remove

The key to removing bats from your home is determining their entry points. Bats can enter through small openings and leave very little trace behind. Our expert technicians will identify all the entry points and evict the colony humanely using one-way doors that allow the bats to leave for food but prevent their re-entry.

In Ontario, we have several species of bats including the hoary bat, big brown bat, silver-haired bat, eastern red bat, tricolored bat, the little brown myotis bat, the eastern small-footed myotis and the northern long-earned myotis.

These creatures are amazing and can be quite fascinating to watch. Nonetheless, you don’t want them in your home.
The most significant risk from bats is likely rabies. Although less common than you may think, this is always a risk that should be taken seriously. They can also carry parasites and other pathogens. If they are living in your home, their droppings and nests can be vectors for disease. In short, you don’t want to leave them unaddressed.

Don’t wait to take on your wildlife problem. Although bats and other animals can be cute, they can also be dangerous and belong in their natural habitats.
