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.

If the thought of a bat in your home sends shivers up your spine, you are not alone! The story of Dracula created an urban myth of blood-thirsty creatures mercilessly preying on humans that persists in our collective psyche. The fact that people often only see the silhouettes of bats darting about at night doesn’t help. These mammals, however, do not deserve the reputation they’ve acquired. They are not aggressive, prefer to eat insects and are more efficient at flying than birds. Even so, having bats set up residence in your home is not desirable. Getting rid of them on your own is not recommended and killing them is against the law. The skilled technicians at Skedaddle Woodbridge can remove any bats in your home safely and humanely.
Ontario is home to eight species of bat, all of which are insectivores. Two of these species migrate, but the remaining six are year-round residents. In the winter, these animals hibernate in trees, caves, mines and, potentially, in your attic. During the warmer months of the year, bats conduct most of their activities in the dark of the night and sleep away the daylight hours.
More than 1,400 bat species have been identified around the world, and they live in almost every type of ecosystem except for the polar regions and extreme desert environments.
The reason bats are so good at flying is due to the structure of their wings. The bones in their wings are the same bones humans have in their hands and arms, and a thin membrane stretches across these bones and connects to the body. This gives these animals a great deal of maneuverability in flight.
Bats carry rabies and can transmit other diseases through their feces and urine. Handling bats without proper training and expertise is a risky endeavour, so it is best to leave the task to the experts.
