Occasionally, we do have to remove bats by hand. Most of the time, I would say up to 99% of the time, we perform what is called a bat exclusion.
This is a method of bat removal that allows the bats to fly naturally out of their roost in your home or building but then they can’t fly back in.
We Do Not Recommend Removing Bats By Hand
Removing bats by hand from their roost during the day when they are trying to sleep is not recommended. We only do it under the most extreme circumstances. It is very hard on the bats.

These little bats that we removed were obviously buried in the insulation of an attic. The reason why we prefer to do an exclusion as opposed to removing bats by hand is that it is much more humane.
This method causes enormous stress on the bats from being removed by hand rather than flying out naturally as opposed to being woken during the middle of the day.
Unfortunately, sometimes this is the only option we have.
The other issue with removing bats by hand, is that they often fly back to their roost before we can even get back to where we were working.
Bats are notoriously instinctual about getting back to their roost. It doesn’t matter if you drive them 30 miles away, they will still find their way back “home”.
If you have bats in your attic, or anywhere else in your home or building, you don’t have to just live with it. We are humane and will remove bats by hand only if we have to.
