Port Hope Bat Removal – No1 Specialized Company in ON 

Over 25 Years Of Experience in Bat Removal

We have been providing Port Hope bat removal services for more than 25 years now. During this period there have been a lot of companies that offer Port Hope bat removal services, with the vast majority been your standard wildlife removal companies. These companies do not just provide Port Hope bat removal services but also other types of wildlife removal. Usually the majority of their work involves raccoons, squirrels and skunks and very little bats as bat problems in Port Hope are not as common as the other type of pests.

This lack of experience along with trying to fix a Port Hope bat removal problem using raccoon and squirrel proofing methods leads to a high rate of failure to bat proof the home correctly and resulting in the bats showing up in the house again. In most cases the client will have to pay again for a bat removal and this is a common theme across the province. If you take a look at our numerous bat removal reviews you will see that many of our clients had paid multiple times to other companies who in the end failed to fix the problem.

My name is Kenny Charboneau and I am a residential bat removal specialist. I would strongly recommend to all of my Port Hope bat removal clients watch my videos as well as read my previous client reviews, as my company has the most reviews and experience in Ontario.

Port Hope bat removal problems

It is a common occurrence to Port Hope bat removal customers that even though they had a bat inside their home, now they cannot find it. Many have turned their house upside down trying to find that bat while wondering, how and where it went. What usually happens in this case is that the bat found a way back into the walls during its effort to escape.

Bats usually enter and exit homes high up, as they need to find only a tiny gap in your roof to enter. This doesn’t mean that you home is badly constructed. Unfortunately it’s the nature of construction and every given home will have entry points that bats can take advantage of them. They are quiet, nocturnal and most of their colonies are small which makes it difficult for someone to know that they have bats unless they show up inside the home or the owner by chance sees them entering/exiting the house from an entry point. Most of my Port Hope bat removal customers discover the problem when one suddenly shows up inside their home and the most common area being the basement.

Most of my Port Hope bat removal customers assume incorrectly that it came in a door or window, however bats actually show up inside because they live in the walls of houses and not attics. The reason for this is that the temperature varies greatly between the winter and the summer, while the internal walls have a stable temperature. After entering the bats use pipes to get into the walls and in some houses they can travel to an unfinished space like a basement or furnace room, once inside they easily move from room to room by crawling under doors.

What my Port Hope bat removal customers also don’t realize is that the bats will often crawl back up into the walls they came out of as they are very sensitive to air currents and can easily find other cracks that they can use.If you look at the unfinished ceiling of a typical Port Hope bat removal customer you can see the gaps beside pipes and ducts. In the case that a Port Hope bat removal client’s basement is finished, then the furnace room is the culprit.

If a bat disappears from my Port Hope bat removal client’s home, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it escaped and found its way out. Some of them get lost and end up dying in the walls or in the ductwork of the house.

Port Hope Bat Removal Guide:


How to Get Rid of Bats in Your Living Space: A Step-by-Step Guide for Port Hope Bat Removal Customers


If you are certain there has been no contact with the bat, follow these steps to get it out of your home:

Step 1: Isolate the Bat. I always recommend that my Port Hope bat removal customers close doors to other parts of the house. Put a towel under any doors to prevent the bat from crawling under and place a heavy book over any heat register, as many of my Port Hope bat removal customers lose track of the bat when it dives down the register and ends up dead in the ductwork.

Step 2: Open a Door or Window. Open a door or window as close to the bat as possible. The bat is lost and wants to get out of your home where it can find food and water. I always tell my Port Hope bat removal customers that the bat wants to get away from all the scary humans. It will eventually (sometimes taking up to an hour) sense the fresh air movement and fly outside.

Step 3: Turn Off Anything That Makes Noise. Loud noises often confuse bats’ echolocation systems. Turning off anything that makes noise will help the bat find its way out.

Step 4: Keep an Eye on the Bat. Many of our Port Hope bat removal customers spend hours searching the house/room for the bat if it goes into hiding. When it does fly out, it will be sudden – and quiet. It may circle the room a few times before discovering the open window.

Step 5: Removing the Bat. If the bat does not seem to be exiting the room on its own or if you are feeling impatient, you can attempt to capture the bat and release it outside. When we are at work on a Port Hope bat removal job, we always wear glones and long pants when attempting to capture the bat. Here are a few methods:

Throw a Towel Over the Bat. Once the bat is under the towel, scoop it up, making sure to wrap the bat inside. Be sure not to crush it!

Use a Basket. Place an empty laundry basket or wastepaper basket over the bat. Then take a newspaper, magazine, or similar object and slide it between the wall/floor and the bat. Make sure not to pinch the bat.

Use a Small-Meshed Net. A large-meshed net may capture the bat as well, but it may injure it as the bat will likely become entangled in the net and require a more hands-on approach.

Attention to All My Port Hope Bat Removal Clients: Please do not swing at the bat with a tennis racket or a baseball bat.

Step 6: Handle with Care. During the removal you will hear a clicking noise, which means that the bat is scared and may attempt to bite. Once you have the bat inside the towel or container, bring it outside, some distance from the house. Make sure that any doors or windows are now closed. Remove the towel or newspaper and turn the container on its side. The bat should be able to get out and fly away. It is not easy for the bat to take off from the ground, so if possible, push the container or towel close to a tree.


Finally, I ask all my Port Hope bat removal clients, please do not harm or kill the bat. The bat just got lost and will not go after you. However, we will need to bat-proof your home and exclude any other bats to prevent this from happening again.

Port Hope Bat Removal

Finally Bat Free After 20 Years!

I have had problems with bats getting in the house from our attic for over 20 years, since Bats Canada sealed the house I haven’t seen a single one! They worked all day, were on the roof sealing every possible entry, installed 2 bat doors, sealed every possible space around windows, spaces in brick, he even fixed gaps in the eavestrough and so much more. I highly recommend this company, they are worth every penny.

We had a bat flying in our family room this past January. We had heard sounds in the wall but thought it was a mouse. We killed the bat and had it tested for rabies. To the surprise of everyone involved, the bat was rabid. As you can imagine, this was very upsetting. Since it was winter, we really couldn’t do anything about this problem until the spring when it was warm enough for the bats to come out of hibernation and start feeding. To protect us against the possibility of another bat, we covered all hot and cold registers with screens, and put draft protectors under the doors. Thankfully, we did not see a second bat. Kenny was fabulous!!!

He took the time to come out to the house to answer all our questions and give us a quote which was very reasonable. We booked a time for him to come back (which was in a couple of days). He caulked the entire house and installed the bat tubes. As well, he put chicken wire in between brick spaces. He checked the house thoroughly for any openings. After a couple of weeks, he returned to take the bat tubes away and seal up the area. I would highly recommend Bats Canada!!!

Port Hope Bat Removal

Kenny, it was very refreshing to hire a company that “walks the talk”! Your partner and yourself were amazing! You worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk with barely a half hour for lunch! This kind of work ethic is hard to find, and then still had enough drive to come back a second day ( and climb the 40′ ladder many times again) to finish the project.

I was very impressed that you repaired and replaced some problem areas that you encountered and did not adjust my quote. Extremely knowledgeable, very professional and a pleasure to deal with! Worth every dollar. A five year guarantee to boot! Thank you. Thank you! I’d highly recommend your company to anyone with a bat problem.

Port Hope Bat Removal

We unfortunately had bats enter our basement area and then during the early morning hours made their way to the upper level. I called Bats Canada and I can’t say enough about how great Kenny was on the phone assuring me they would be by within a week. This was a Friday and by Wed. noon the two arrived. Kenny explained fully about how bats live and they went to work bat proofing the house.

I had mentioned that over the past few years we also had a rodent problem and although it was not part of their normal procedure, Kenny went completely around our home with a foam spray under the bottom siding which should prevent the rodents from entering. These guys are fantastic and for the past two nights we have slept convinced that no more bats will be flying around our heads coming on to dawn. Kenny assured us that he will be back in Oct. to remove the vents and seal up this area. Thanks again, we sure appreciate your immediate attention.

Kenny Saved Us!!

I have had a bat problem for quite a few years. They came out at night flying around our bedroom while we were sleeping, evening hours while watching TV., droppings in the basement etc. It made living in our home very difficult. I was nervous all the time, couldn’t relax when the evening came, and was afraid to go to bed! It became so distressing that we considered selling the house and moving. We spent thousands of dollars trying to fix the problem, hiring many bat control individuals and companies, spray foaming the attic, fixing the roof etc and nothing worked until Kenny came.

He spent 2 full days examining and bat proofing what seemed to be every square inch of the house! He worked hard and successfully! It has been a year now, and there have bee NO bats! NO evidence of bats either! No droppings, no scratching sounds in the walls, nothing! I am so incredibly relieved and grateful! I feel like Kenny has given me my “home” back. Bats used to be on my mind ALL the time and now I hardly think or worry about them anymore. Thank you Kenny for what you have done for us!

Bat Droppings

Bat Droppings can be found in the attic or around the house where bats either tend to roost or enter the house. If you see bat droppings in your attic then you definitely have a bat problem and your require bat removal. If you find them around your property then it is not exactly certain if they are using your building or just roosting there. For more information please click on the link below. 

Bat Entry Holes

This is the most obvious way to see that you have a bat problem. If you can see bats leaving your home at dusk, that means you have a bat infestation. Bats will typically leave the home at dusk to feed and stay in your home during the course of the day. Bat entry holes have usually brown staining around them and should be identified during the removal process as to not trap any bats inside the house.

had a bat during the winter

If you had a bat show up in your home then you definitely have a bat problem. Not all bats go to caves. Bats hibernate during the winter in your home and a few times in their hibernation they tend to wake. Bats that hibernate in homes are the Big Brown Bats. Bat removal cannot be done during the winter months. For more information please click on the link below.
