WE HAVE HAD TO REDUCE OUR SERVICE AREA. THEREFORE, WE ARE NOT SERVICING THE ATHENS AREA RIGHT NOW. WHEN OUR AREA WIDENS AGAIN WE WILL POST THE CHANGE.
Please understand that bats are protected, harming a bat can carry a serious fine! We need bats to stick around, just not in your attic or home. We have fully trained, Licensed & Insured Alpharetta Bat Removal Specialists who can safely & quickly get the bats to vacate your home or building and never come back. Obviously you were not prepared for a bat invasion… so we will do everything we can to keep the costs down.
Bat problems are common in Athens, GA. You are not alone! Getting bats out of your home, for us is a simple process, simple because we understand how bats gain entry. All bats need is a gap or hole ranging in size 1/4″ – 1-1/2″ to gain entry in your home, walls, attic or gable vent. These facts are what our Licensed Bat Specialist are trained to recognize and immediately identify in order to get the bats out of your attic or gable vents and keep them out.
BAT REMOVAL PROCESS
We are experts in getting the bats out without harming them in the process. We service the entire Athens, Georgia area for bat trapping, bat removal, bat control & bat exclusion. The process is as follows;
- We come out & perform an inspection to assess what needs to be sealed and the steps necessary to get the bats out. We will provide you with a price at that time and we are prepared to do the work right then and there. If you say yes, work begins.
- Either we hand remove the bats or we use a one-way valve that will allow the bats to leave but denies them entry back inside.
- Guano cleanup is an optional part of the process. We will provide you with a quote to remove the guano using HEPA filtration and once the guano is gone we will sanitize the area using anti-microbial & anti-bacterial deodorizers.
BLACK-OUT PERIOD (MATERNITY SEASON)
There are extra measures and precautions that need to be taking during the “baby season”. This can vary every year so we make sure to keep updated on any changes and we will go over this on the phone with you.We have to get our eyes on the colony to determine that there aren’t any flightless babies. If there is flightless young or we cannot confirm visually, we have to assume there are and we seal up your home except for their entry/exit point. This prevents the cleanup from being necessary in more areas and saves you money. Then we come back after the babies can fly and use a one-way valve or hand remove and continue with the standard bat removal process.
Call us and we can explain the process to you. Don’t let other companies scare you into paying crazy amounts of money thinking your life is in danger. We can help you. We answer our phones 24/7!

Fun Bat Facts – FYI
1. Bats are the only mammals able to fly. Bats are exceptional in the air. Their wings are thin, giving them what is called, in flight terms, “airfoil.” The power bats have to push forward is called “propulsion.”
2. A single brown bat can catch around 1,200 mosquito-size insects in one hour. In Bracken Cave, Texas, it’s estimated that the 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats that live there eat about 200 tons of insects . . . each night. People often ask us why bats are protected species… now you know why!
3. The metabolism of a bat is enviable — they can digest bananas, mangoes, and berries in about 20 minutes.
4. Fewer than 10 people in the last 50 years have contracted rabies from North American bats. Due to movies and television, bats are thought to be germ machines, bringing disease and toxins to innocent victims. Not true. Bats avoid people. If you are bitten by a bat, go to the doctor.
5. Bats use echolocation to get around in the dark. Bats don’t see very well and do a lot of living at night, so they have to rely on navigational methods other than sight. Bats send out beeps and listen for variations in the echoes that bounce back at them and that’s how they get around. Bats are nocturnal, mostly because it’s easier to hunt bugs and stay out of the way of predators when it’s dark. Bats do use their eyesight to see things in the daytime, but most bat business is done under the blanket of night for convenience.
6. More than 50 percent of bat species in the United States are either in severe decline or are listed as endangered. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Disease (white-nose syndrome), industry, deforestation, pollution, and good old-fashioned killing have wiped out many bats and their habitats.
7. Bats keep warm by folding their wings around themselves, trapping air against their bodies for instant insulation.
8. An anticoagulant found in vampire bat saliva may soon be used to treat human cardiac patients. The same stuff that keeps blood flowing from vampire bats’ prey seems to keep blood flowing in human beings, too. Scientists in several countries are trying to copy the enzymes found in vampire bat saliva to treat heart conditions and stop the effects of strokes in humans.
9. Bats have only one pup a year. Most mammals of smallish size have way more offspring than that which is not helping the threat to their population declination.
10. The average lifespan of a bat varies, but some species of brown bat can live to be 30 years old.
