San Diego Bat Removal
San Diego bats will typically roost in your attic during the winter months. These flying wild animals often find their way into chimneys and attics where they make themselves a cozy little home. Can you believe that bats are the only mammal capable of flight? They can enter through small openings like vents, damaged or cracked roofs, leaky soffits, and eaves, unsealed windows, or any crack.
Once inside your house, these bats may leave droppings and urine stains around which can deteriorate your property. Aside from structural damage, their animal waste can be a health hazard as well. Bat droppings (or also called “bat guano”) contain histoplasmosis spores which can be harmful to your pet and family members when inhaled. If you have a family of bats roosting in your attic, wait until they leave before attempting any removal or repairs! Bat removal from attics or chimneys is a delicate process that requires time, care, and patience.
At AAAC Wildlife Removal of San Diego, we provide humane bat removal services. We will inspect your chimney, seal any cracks and crevices that might be allowing bats to enter. If you have an attic or chimney problem with bat colonies living inside it, our experts will locate their access points into the attic and chimney, remove them humanely (because we don’t want to harm a single bat), and seal up the area they were using as their entry point so that other bats can’t get in there again. We will thoroughly conduct attic cleanup and remove bat droppings and also repair any damage they may have caused, including new insulation installation if necessary.
For your bat colony problem, AAAC Wildlife Removal of San Diego is just one call away!
Bat Exclusion in San Diego, CA
Bat exclusion is a process of humane removal of bats. It is a bat-friendly and bat-proof exclusion process that includes home inspection to identify points of entry for the bat colony. After that, we will get rid of your bats by using live capture traps or bat nets, and seal up any possible access points with a one-way door to keep them out permanently.
Here’s how we handle a bat exclusion job:
- Spend a LOT of time identifying each bat entry point into your home
- Establish one-way doors at all entry points
- Validate that we’ve excluded all of the bats in your attic
- Seal every one of the access holes
- Conduct an attic cleanup and removal of all the harmful bat droppings using the proper safety equipment
- Change insulation (if needed)
- Fix any interior or outdoor damage
Bat Control VS Extermination
Bats are protected in most parts of the country, so make certain you make use of a professional when dealing with bat problems. Killing bats is illegal in San Diego and the surrounding areas, so wildlife professionals will use the bat exclusion method to remove them from your home.
It’s important to note that trapping is not an ideal method for removing bats from your home. Unlike trapping other wildlife, trapping bats is difficult because they’re small and agile creatures. The bat control method we use to humanely remove bats from attics or chimneys is called bat exclusion. To exclude bats from the attic or any other location they might be residing, bats are lured into bat traps and relocated to a safer place.
Before bats can be excluded from the San Diego chimney, we must first identify their entry holes! Bats will usually enter through cracks at eaves level as well as gaps around vents and chimneys. Once the bat colony has been excluded from your house, it is important that all droppings and urine stains are removed as soon as possible!
For your wildlife problem, seek wildlife professionals for help. AAAC Wildlife Removal of San Diego is here to help!

Frequently Asked Questions
Should bats be protected in California?
Absolutely! Bats are an important part of the ecosystem in California. They are the second most common mammal (after rodents) and make up twenty percent of Earth’s mammal population. One of the most common bats found in the state is the big brown bat. Bats contribute to keeping the insect populations low. In just an hour, one bat can eat up to 1,200 mosquitos!
What is bat guano?
Bat Guano is another term for bat droppings. The droppings are small and can appear comparable to rodent droppings. Yet, do not be tricked. If you shine a flashlight on them after breaking the droppings apart (please use gloves!), you’ll see them shine or glimmer in the light.
Is guano unsafe to humans?
Be very careful around bat guano (once again, gloves people!) as it can transmit a lethal fungal infection referred to as histoplasmosis. You can inhale it just by being anywhere near guano, so we actually suggest you allow experts with correct safety equipment to take care of an attic clean-up.
