Our Bat Removal Service
Professional bat removal service that utilizes the “one way door” method of exclusion is a humane and effective approach to safely remove bats from a structure while ensuring they cannot re-enter. This method aims to encourage the bats to exit the building through a one-way device, typically a specially designed flap or valve, without allowing them to re-enter.
Here’s a step-by-step overview of the process of our service:
Inspection and Assessment:
Professional bat removal starts with a thorough inspection of the property to identify entry points, bat roosting areas, and assess the extent of the infestation.
Sealing Entry Points:
Before installing the one-way devices, all potential entry points are sealed, except for the primary exit points. This prevents bats from re-entering the structure through any other openings.
Installation of One-Way Doors:
One-way doors, typically made of durable materials like plastic or metal, are installed over the identified primary entry and exit points. These devices allow bats to exit freely but prevent them from re-entering due to the design of the door.
Monitoring and Observation:
Professionals will monitor the one-way doors to ensure the bats are effectively leaving the structure. This may involve observations during evenings when bats are most active.
Removing One-Way Doors:
After a suitable period, once it is confirmed that all bats have exited and are not attempting to re-enter, the one-way doors are removed.
The remaining entry points are permanently sealed to prevent future bat re-entry.
Clean-up and Sanitation:
The area is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to remove bat guano (droppings) and any other remnants. This may also involve addressing any damage caused by the bats.
Recommendations for preventative measures are often provided to the property owner to deter bats from returning to the structure. This may include habitat modification, improving building conditions, and implementing deterrents.

What are signs of bats in my home?
Bats are known to find areas to overwinter, typically from October 16th to March 31st. During this period, as the weather becomes colder and insect activity decreases, bats seek out hibernation sites to conserve energy and survive the winter. These hibernation sites are often caves, mines, tunnels, or other sheltered locations that provide a stable and cool environment.
Bats go into a state of torpor during hibernation, which is a state of decreased metabolic activity and lowered body temperature. This helps them conserve energy and survive on their fat reserves until warmer temperatures and increased insect availability prompt them to become active again in the spring.
It’s important to note that specific behaviors and timing can vary slightly based on the species of bat and the local climate conditions. Different species of bats may have variations in their hibernation patterns and preferred overwintering sites.
Bats are flying mammals found in almost every region of the world, and they’re generally considered to be highly beneficial to their environments. However, when bats are found nesting in your Massachusetts business or home, it’s difficult to think of them as beneficial.
Are bats protected?
According to state law, there are very specific times of year that you can legally get rid of bats that are nesting in your home. The lifecycle of bats native to our area dictates the times that exclusion work can take place and the times that exclusion work cannot take place.
Exclusion may take place:
- April 1st – April 30th – bats may be present, but pups are not yet born
- August 1st – October 15th – bats may be present, but all bats should be flying
- May 1st– July 31st – motherless bats and their flightless pups may be present in the roost
- October 16th – March 31st – bats find areas to overwinter
