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.

Clear and Clean

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.


Prevent and Protect

Bats in Vaughan

For many, the thought of a bat conjures up an image of a terrifying creature that is thirsty for human blood. In reality, these mammals are not aggressive and are as keen to avoid you as you are them. Bats fulfill important roles in our ecosystems and face numerous threats due to habitat loss and white-nose syndrome, a lethal fungal infection that is killing off bats in alarmingly large numbers. All species of bats are protected under Canadian law, making it illegal to kill a bat in your home. If you discover you have bats in your home, contact our Skedaddle wildlife experts in Vaughan for humane bat removal.

Though there are eight species of bat that make their homes in Ontario, you are only likely to see the big and little brown bats and, perhaps the Northern long-eared myotis bat occupying human structures. The remaining five species prefer the forests, caves and abandoned mines that are prevalent in rural areas. All of the bats in the province are insectivores.

Bats like to make their homes in places that offer protection from the elements and predators. They also like an environment that provides a consistently cool temperature. Your attic hits all of these requirements, making it an ideal location for bats to call home. Occasionally, a bat may inadvertently make its way into your living quarters through an open window or via a chimney, but this is not a common occurrence.

Often the presence of a bat colony can go unnoticed for quite some time because these animals are nocturnal, which means they are most active when their human hosts are asleep. If you suspect you have bats in your attic, it is important to seek the assistance of professionals. Skedaddle technicians understand bat behavior and biology, and they can safely and humanely remove them from your home and prevent re-entry.

Bat Facts


While bats are not aggressive animals, they are common hosts for rabies. A sick bat may bite when trapped in close quarters, and even healthy bats might bite if they are scared or cornered.


While gliders and flying squirrels don’t actually fly — they glide — bats do truly fly. They are the only mammal capable of this gravity-defying feat.


White-nose syndrome is a devastating disease that is a threat to North American bat populations.


Insectivorous bats have voracious appetites. A small-sized animal can eat up to 1,000 insects an hour, while a nursing female eats 4,000 or more in a single night.


White-nose syndrome has killed more than 6.7 million bats since it was first discovered in 2006. Its victims are primarily species that sleep in abandoned mines or caves.
