We purchased our new home in a rural community in January. We have seen a few bats at dusk hovering around the home and coming out from an opening in the front of our garage. Since our garage was fully dry walled, we were sure that they weren't coming into the home. We then noticed that they were also at the side of our home and making their way into the wall between the eavesdrop & the roof canal. We were still sure that our walls were all properly sealed up and they would not make their way into our home. Well we got the shock one evening at 12:30 as we were watching TV. We noticed that one of them had come into the home. We chased it out of the home, after a few hours of trying to catch it. We then decided to call Bat Control Specialists and Ben answered right away. He took the time to answer all of our questions over the phone and made his way over to our home that evening. While speaking with Ben in our kitchen, he did get to see first hand where the bats were exiting my home. He came back the next day to bat proof our home and he worked all day tirelessly finishing bat proofing our whole home. Benjamin was very punctual. He works quickly and diligently, cleaning up after himself and he was always very polite. I couldn't have asked for a nicer man to take care of our little problem. Benjamin is very knowledgeable in what he does. He gave us quite a bit of information on bats and you can tell right away that he is really passionate about what he does and how he does it. He installed a few one way bat doors. In which they can leave, however, they couldn't get back in. Ben followed up with us the next day and then again a few days later, and then came back after about 15 days to remove the one way doors. We were extremely happy with Ben and level of service that we received. I would most definitely recommend this company to anyone. Thank you very much Ben!

Thanks for the kind words. I remember when I first looked at your house I found evidence that someone in the past had attempted to fix the bat problem, probably a wildlife control company. Their workmanship was typical of non specialists in that they sealed a few obvious entry points that were easily accessed but all the high up stuff and complex work that needed doing had been skipped. I remember you said it must have been done before you bought the house, which is good because it means you were not ripped off unlike the previous owners. When I bat-proofed your home it took a ton of caulking and installation of a lot of custom flashings. I also remember fixing a couple of leaky areas on the roof and having to kill a few bees nests. I also remember your hospitality in offering me cold drinks which is huge on a hot day. Finally I remember your awesome little dog too, such a sweetheart.
