In Bat Conservation, Bat Control

We get it. Bat removal is expensive and inconvenient. We rarely, if ever, talk to someone that has money set aside in their budget for a bat removal project. Not to mention the fears, misconceptions, and anxiety the situation causes most people. We’re very upfront about the fact that we are not the cheapest bat removal company you are going to find. We’re the best.

We get a lot of questions about why someone would pay more.

“Aren’t all bat removal jobs the same? Why would I pay more than Generic Pest Control is going to charge me?”

Fair question. So, let’s take a look at why you may want to pay more for someone that knows what they’re doing.

Choose the Right Bat Removal Company

When we’re talking to clients about this on the phone, we often compare it to an automobile mechanic.

Some mechanics do a great job. These mechanics often are harder to get into meaning you’ll have to wait a little bit of extra time to get your car fixed. They also are guaranteed to charge you more.

Some mechanics don’t do a great job. These mechanics can often get you in right away because they don’t get repeat business… They’ll charge you less, sometimes a lot less.

What’s the biggest difference between those two mechanics though? One will fix your car, and one MIGHT fix your car. One will be around if you have issues in the future, and one MIGHT disappear as soon as you give them money.

So if a bat removal company does a bad job, what are the consequences?

  • Not actually removing the bats
  • Trapping bats INSIDE with you
  • Killing the bats
  • Taking your money and disappearing

Do you want to risk that in your home or business?

Here is just one example of a worst case scenario:

An apartment complex in San Marcos, Texas hired a “professional” bat removal company to get bats out of their parking garage. Not only did they fail to get the bats out, they also sealed them inside. And covered them in spray foam, effectively killing any bats affected.

Whether you like bats or hate them, this is inhumane and cruel. The bats in that video either suffocated because their heads were covered or died of an intestinal blockage because their bottom half was covered.

Dangerous for You and the Bats

This is a dangerous situation for you because if bats are sealed inside your home or building, they are likely to make their way into the living space in a desperate attempt to find a way out. It’s obviously a dangerous situation for the bats as well as they are a vulnerable animal easily killed.

Please consider the repercussions of hiring the “lowest bidder” bat removal company. Experience matters. We know what works to remove bats, while doing it safely and humanely.

Our hearts break for the tragedy in Texas. Don’t let this happen to you in your home or business. Call the experts at Get Bats Out to get the job done correctly the first time.
