We are experts at removing bats from residential properties. Whether you have a single bat trapped in your house, a colony roosting in your attic, and/or various other problems, there is no need to worry! During our removal process, we make sure to inspect your entire home carefully, tracking down all the entrypoints bats are using to invade your place. Next, we perform a process called live exclusion (where no bats are harmed and all exit your property), then seal all entry holes completely shut. We also take care of the cleanup process after, so your home is safe and clean!

Besides residential areas, we also have a wealth of experience removing bats from commercial properties! We begin by investigating the area for possible bat entrances, covering holes even as small as 1/4 of an inch. Through our live exclusion process, bats leave the building through one-way exits, and we seal up every hole afterward. Once the bats have been removed, we perform a cleanup process. This includes dealing with guano, replacing damaged insulation, and decontaminating the place.

What Our Customers Say

What areas can bats enter a house through?

In spite of what you may think, bats are generally lovely creatures that are actually helpful to the environment. They feed on insects, and can seriously help by keeping down the critter population in a given area. By consuming flies, mites, mosquitoes, spiders, and other such unpleasant creatures, they are actually considered beneficial for the area they inhabit. However, when they slither into a house, they can become quite a serious problem, and pose a serious threat to you and your loved ones.

So as a homeowner, it's important to know the main ways a bat can get into the house so that you can efficiently protect yourself against such an invasion. In this article, we'll be talking about the most common entry points and areas inhabited by bats. Ideally, this information should help you keep your home safe.

So what are some common entry points for bats?

While bats may appear big because of their wings, they are actually rather tiny creatures. Meaning that they can squeeze through a lot of cracks and holes that you wouldn't even deem important, normally.

Crack in the mortar

One of the most common ways a bat enters a human home is through a crack in the mortar. Often, the homeowner won't even notice the crack, but the bat surely will, and may end up living inside your home for years before you become aware of it.

This is why it's recommended that you run a thorough check of the walls on a fairly regular basis, to ensure there aren't any such cracks and holes that a bat (or any other wildlife, for that matter) might use as a doorway.

Defective window frames

We're not going to tell you that bats can come in through open windows, because that sounds like a no-brainer. But you'd be surprised how often bats and other unwanted house guests make use of a window that was left open in the attic. But supposing that you've closed all your windows, the frames themselves might still pose a risk. Through natural wear and tear, these can become dislodged, or present small tears and cracks.

And these are often viewed as an ideal entry point for bats and other creatures in need of shelter.

Holes in the roof

One other area that needs your attention is the roof since missing shingles and cracks can offer easy access to outside critters. In fact, the roof is quite a popular entryway since it's fairly difficult to check, and a lot of homeowners just don't bother. So make sure that you also leave aside a bit of time to check that your roof is in optimal shape, lest you discover unwanted house guests up in your attic.

What areas of the house do bats usually prefer?

Next, let's talk a bit about the most common dwellings for a bat. Remember that these are non-confrontational creatures that would much rather enjoy some easy shelter, food, and peace of mind. They're looking for a place in the house where they won't be discovered by you, the owner.


Easily the number one choice for bats worldwide, the attic is fairly easy to access (and leave, in search of food) and sees very little traffic throughout most of the year. It's also dark and cool, which is just dandy for a bat. This means that a bat can live inside your attic for months and even years before you become aware of them (usually from the smell or the noise).


Similar to the attic, the basement offers a fairly reclusive spot to hang out (literally!), that's dark and quiet. It's also unlikely that you will venture down there often, which is why bats just love it.
