Safely Rid Your Property of Bats

Bats are present throughout most of the world & are the only mammal capable of sustained flight (vs flying squirrels, etc. whom can only glide). Because bats are nocturnal mammals, they seek out dark, quiet areas to sleep in during the day & go out only at night. Bats have extremely acute hearing & navigate using echolocation (they emit a sound to echo & navigate; dolphins & whales also do this). Bats can & do carry diseases which are transmissible to humans, including rabies (albeit rarely). Bat guano contains bacteria & may harbor fungal organisms. Bats do bite humans if provoked or scared, can carry fleas which can be passed on to pets & get inside of homes, & they can be very loud.

How to get rid of bats: Bird-X has 50 years of bat control experience & are confident there are 2 extremely effective solutions: physical barriers (netting) & ultrasonic repellents.

  • Ultrasonic bat repellent devices are very effective against bats. These run completely silent to humans, emitting ultrasonic frequencies that interfere with bat’s echolocation navigation. Bats are not harmed, this just annoys them & encourages them to seek out quieter locations. The Transonic Pro is best suited for indoor use (or in a barn, garage, etc) & covers 3,500 sq. ft., while the Ultrason X is best suited for outdoor use (patios, parking garages, warehouses, etc) & covers 3,600 sq. ft. The QB-4 model covers 6,500 sq ft & is the same model used by the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Boeing, & many large companies. These devices are very simple & effective tools to get rid of bats, have the benefit of invisible, no-fuss protection, & are very well reviewed by our customers for bat control.
  • Netting is long-lasting & extremely effective in bat control, & is widely used worldwide. We offer several types of exclusion netting – simply install across openings or to protect large areas from bat infestation. Depending on the kind of bats you are repelling, select a size that is small enough to exclude bats, since bats can wiggle through large-holed netting just like mice can. The most popular netting we sell for bat prevention is our PE-Plus Premium Grade BirdNet, because it is very well constructed to protect against the elements, is tightly-knit, & protects against tearing or picking by pests.
