Bats

Regal Pest Control’s technicians are fully licensed and trained to remove the bats at your location. There are nine species of bat in Michigan. In Southeast Michigan, the big brown bat is the most common bat we find. Little brown bats are fairly common as well.

Our bat services are provided from March through May and from September through October. We do not offer bat services at any other time of the year as in the cold months they are hibernating and in from June through August they may have their pups in the space you’d like them removed from. Call today to schedule an on-site inspection! 

How we Remove Bats

Our five step process to remove the bats at your location.

1

INITIAL INSPECTION

There are several ways that bats can gain access to your home. Our technicians will inspect several areas around the home such as: Under ridge caps, under flashing, through chimney openings (usually due to a missing chimney cap), areas around open windows or doors, torn/deteriorated screening material used behind vent covers, under peeling shingles, eaves, soffits, window sills, siding, and many other areas.

2

ASSESSMENT 

After our initial inspection, our technicians will review all of the potential entry-points found and will explain the upcoming process, which may involve night watches at sunset, to further identify bat access points. Our technicians will go over the scope of our service and will answer any questions you may have regarding the removal of the bats.

ONE WAY DOOR INSTALLATION TO REMOVE THE BATS

Bats are protected species. As a result, we are not able to trap them but rather install one-way-doors to remove them. The “doors” are actually tubes that allow the bats to leave but prevent them from gaining access to the areas once they leave.  

4

DROPPING REMOVAL (IF POSSIBLE)

Bat droppings, or “guano”, are a potential health hazard and should be removed after a bat removal service has been conducted. There are several diseases associated with guano, so this is an important step. Depending on the type of insulation, Regal Pest Control may not be able to HEPA vacuum these droppings and may refer the cleanup to a third party company. If this is the case, this will be communicated to you clearly on the initial assessment.

5

EXCLUSION

Once the one-way-doors are removed we seal off those areas with either hardware cloth, caulking or a combination of both. This is the last phase of the process.

Bat Habitats on Your Property

Bats can inhabit a variety of areas on your property. The following are common areas where bats may be found.

Bat Service Schedule

One-way-door installations are done from March 1st through May 31st and from September 1st through October 31st. We do not install one-way-doors from June 1st through August 30th, as the maternity season for bats is usually June 1st through August 15th. Installing the one-way-door during that time would prevent the mothers from returning to their pups. Please note that we do not remove bats that get stuck in chimneys.

Yes. We offer a $50 discount for every new homeowner or business you refer to us, when that homeowner or business receives and pays for their service. There’s no limit to the number of referral credits you can receive. For more information, see our customer referral program here. Some limitations may apply and Regal Pest Control can cancel the referral program at any time.

The amount of time depends on whether you have an attic, a crawlspace (if it’s dirt or paved) and other factors. Typically, inspections for homes under 2,500 sq ft take a about one hour. Add about a 20 minutes or so for each additional 1,000 sq ft.

If we do find activity, the inspection time will likely increase.

We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards.

No. Believe it or not, we’ve gotten this question more than a few times over the years. Our vehicles DO have our name and contact information on them and they MAY have some of the services we provide but they DO NOT have any giant bugs or critters on top of them.
