Bat Removal

Bat

Bats in the attic?

·     When bats give birth, their offspring are called pups.

·      The baby bats, or pups, are unable to fly for at least one to two months.

·     In Tennessee bats are protected and have a blackout period between April 15th and August 15th where we cannot remove them from a structure.

·     Removing bats from an attic or tile roof can only be completed with exclusions, valves and/or netting.
