Bat Control & Removal in Utah

Bats are fascinating and very beneficial because they help control other insects by eating 6,000- 8,000 flying insects each night. If bats enter your house, however, they can become a nightmare. We are here to help.

Humane Bat Control Options

Bats are protected, so they cannot be harmed. Thorn offers safe, humane options to remove bats from your property.

Bat flying in the night

Bats are protected by the migratory bird act of 1918.

Bats cannot be harmed because of this act. Instead, we must seal up building to keep them out. If bats are already nesting inside of a building, we must wait for them to fly south in late fall and seal up the building then. Sealing a building requires a lot of inspection work to make sure every opening is found and sealed.

We will also perform clean up of attic spaces when necessary.

Bat houses offer an alternative home.

Bat houses are a great way to keep bats away from your building/home. From April to August, female bats look for safe and quiet places to give birth and raise their pups. Mother and newborn bats are very sensitive to being disturbed. Bat houses/boxes are a perfect place for them.

These houses can be installed in the late winter or early spring. They need to be placed 10 feet off the ground and require direct sunlight.

Is it illegal to kill bats in Utah?

Yes, killing bats in Utah is illegal. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 protects all bat species in the state of Utah. Our team of experts is trained for humane bat removal and can advise on bat prevention, residential bat removal, and commercial bat removal. 

If nesting bats are discovered on your property, our specialists will monitor the situation, then advise on next steps. Bats migrate in the late fall, so it’s best to allow nesting bats to raise their young in a protected space. We seal up the gaps and entry points to keep them out for good after they leave.

 

What keeps bats away from your house?

The best thing you can do to prevent bats from choosing your building as a nesting area is make sure entry points are well sealed. A sealed structure simply isn’t habitable, and the bats will look elsewhere. 

If you’d like to invite bats onto your property so that they can reduce the presence of flying insects, consider a bat house. Bat houses give bats a place to roost without inviting them into your commercial building or home.

 

What is the best bat repellent?

There are bat repellents on the market, but we have not found a product that works. Our bat pest control specialists are experts at getting bats out and keeping them out. The best course of action is always to seal up the gaps and entry points to your building or home so they cannot return. 

Our team is most likely to make recommendations based on your needs including exclusion tactics and bat house alternatives.

 

How do bats get in the house?

You’d be surprised how easily bats can find a new spot to roost, like many other creatures listed in our pest library. Bats can enter a building through very small gaps measuring approximately ½ inch to ¾ inch in width. 

Commercial buildings and homes often have narrow spaces around the eaves and roofline, making them inviting spaces for bats to gather. Blocking their points of access is the best way to prevent them from getting into your space.

 

Say "Bye Bye" to those bats.
