Bat Removal

After an extensive internet search, I contacted Bat Control Specialists to remove bats from the soffit of our 2600 sq foot fairly new build. Benjamin was very knowledgeable, thorough and punctual. He sealed all potential entry points around the house, leaving two one way exits. Payment was completed upon job completion, which occurred several weeks later, when he was next in the area to remove the exits and seal them. Had we not been home, I imagine we would have received an invoice in the mail. Although very pleased with the work, the cost was fairly high, given our home was a new build and no attic cleaning was necessary, only caulking, wire mesh inserts in bricks and fire place vent coverage. That being said, Benjamin repaired and reinforced a previous shoddy squirrel removal set up by Halton Wildlife at no charge and all work comes with a five year, transferable warranty.

Approximate cost of services:
What could this company do to improve their services?
Cost could have been better.
Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Do not hire a pest control company to address a bat issue. Guarantees, if any, are poor. They do not care about the aesthetics of their work, or your home and do very few bat removals to be considered experts. Trust Bat Control Specialists

Company Response

I appreciated your kind review and candor about price. The biggest complaint I get is always about price. Unlike buying a TV or winter vacation, spending money to solve a bat problem is no ones idea of a fun purchase. However, advertizing, gas, food, insurance, materials and sleeping in hotels seven plus months a year while serving clients all over Ontario and Quebec is costly. Despite our price you still hired us because you wanted a quality job with a good guarantee. Too many of my clients have been ripped off by non specialists and local pest companies offering cheap cures for complex bat problems. Paying Twice to have it done right is my definition of expensive. I'm glad that you mentioned price as it does help me emphasize that quality is never cheap. I'm also glad that despite being unhappy about the cost you still gave us a 10 out of 10. That's possibly the best compliment I had all year. Thank you.
