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.
Depending on the size of the colony and how long they’ve been living in the home there could be a large mess to clean up. Our wildlife technicians will thoroughly remove bat guano and disinfect the space to eliminate any harmful traces left behind.
Our wildlife technicians will provide a full, comprehensive protection plan against any future bat infestations. This would include sealing all the tiny gaps and openings around your home’s roofline to keep bats out.

This lung infection poses serious risks for younger and older people and those with weakened immune systems.
All bats are endangered or threatened species and protected by law. You need to remove bats that live in your attic for safety and health reasons, but colonies are moved at specific times of year to protect the young and not disturb hibernation. Skedaddle uses a three-step approach to humane wildlife control. Our technicians are trained in bat behaviours and use safe and reliable techniques to preserve colonies and protect your home.
Bats emit sound waves from their noses and mouths which bounce off objects and echo back signals. This process is known as echolocation and helps them navigate all types of environments.
They prefer to dwell in dark and secluded places and try to avoid interactions with people. While only a small percentage of bats carry the rabies virus overall, handling bats is never recommended. They have delicate body structures, and professional wildlife control specialists know how to safely handle them to prevent injury or death. Our Newmarket Skedaddle technicians will address any questions you have about the removal and clean up process. We are committed to eco-friendly services and customer satisfaction.
