Our Bat Control Sees Unwanted Intruders Fly Away For Good

Terminix Canada’s humane bat control and removal is a necessity when you experience bat infestations in your business. Bats anywhere on your premises can create serious problems. One of the scariest looking intruders by appearance, bats are straight out of most Canadians’ nightmares.

Known for their relatively poor eyesight, Canadian bats are usually small and furry with thin wings. Urinating and defecating anywhere they roost, they also cause staining and odour problems that are difficult to remove. Associated with the rabies virus that is dangerous to humans, this means bat control is a job best left to our professional bat exterminators.

Our bat control team respond to bat infestations quickly and efficiently. When you’re questioning how to get rid of bats long-term, the answer is bat proofing your business before issues get worse. Our humane bat control and removal service utilizes industry-leading techniques to successfully remove bats from your premises. Backed by over 90 years of wildlife removal experience, we only spend time on solutions that provide the effective results you expect.

Common Bats Of Canada

Size: 6 to 10 cm long, wingspan of up to 27 cm.

Colour: Varies from reddish-brown to dark brown.

Behaviour: Preferring dark and dry spaces, bats often inhabit attics, basements and chimneys. They can squeeze through narrow spaces effortlessly. Eating beetles, moths, mosquitoes and more, bats are one of the few mammals known to feed on blood. Bats possess the unique ability to see through echolocation, in which they emit high-frequency sounds to analyze the location of objects based on bouncing sound waves.
