10+ Years Faithfully Providing Urbana Bat Removal Service Including General Wildlife Removal, Attic Restorations And More
Urbana Bat Removal Service gets numerous bat calls from homeowners and businesses in Urbana, Ohio. Whether in Urbana, or any other city in Ohio, bats don’t need much of an opening if they want to access your building’s attic, as you can see in the photo to the right – or below in mobile.
Small spaces where the outside of your home or business meets overhangs make for perfect entrances into your inner walls, but more often, especially your attic. You can often see dark staining from bat feces and bat body oils in areas where bats have entered your building. And if you are patient sooner or later, you will see bats exiting these areas at dusk when heading out for their nightly feeding of insects.
Bats eat large numbers of insects, primarily mosquitoes, when they feed, and they will eat half their body weight in insects, which means they produce a large amount of bat poop, also known as guano. If a colony of bats gets into your attic and has been there for a while, they can produce large piles of guano, and we mean LARGE PILES! And large piles of bat guano mean a significant amount of contamination which can impact your health and a considerable cost to clean up the mess. Bat guano and urine contaminate insulation, flooring, attic walls, and even walls and ceilings in living and working spaces below a bat infested attic.
We Do Not Exterminate Bats In Order to Remove Them From Buildings. Bats Are Protected By Ohio Law, so if a company suggests extermination please don’t hire that company since they could get you in trouble, and most certainly they unethical company.
If your home or business has bats, our Urbana Bat Removal Service team will locate them and search out all areas outside your home that the bats use to access your building. As stated above, bats will leave a mess in an attic space which is where they roost most often or between walls in your attic space.
Of course, we must remove bats from your home or business and stop them from coming back before our cleanup process can get underway. And since bats have an instinctive compulsion to use a previous roosting space, our Urbana Bat Removal Service techs point must seal and repair every known access point; otherwise, you’ll face the same problem again.

“My wife and I moved into our Vandalia home in 2009. During the years that followed our home seemed to be a “critter magnet.” At various times we experienced raccoons in the attic, groundhogs under our deck, and an occasional mouse in our walls.
Based on the recommendation from one of our neighbors, we contacted Barnes Wildlife Control. Jack Barnes visited us and conducted a thorough, comprehensive inspection — inside and out — of our home. Upon completion he summarized his findings and showed us photos of the animal damage — multiple roof area openings, insulation material soiled by raccoon and rodent droppings, electrical wiring damage, weep holes affording rodent entry, and deteriorated wood lattice-work surrounding the base of our deck.
Within a few days of Jack’s visit we received an itemized list of recommended remedial actions, a cost estimate for each action, and a schedule for completion of each action. Remedial actions included sealing our home from rodents, rodent trapping, fecal matter removal, electrical wiring repair, and soiled insulation removal and replacement.
We contacted Jack and gave him the go-ahead on each of his recommendations. He and his crew exemplify all the characteristics a homeowner could want, or hope, to find in a contractor. Their overall plan for accomplishment was well thought out. Their visitation schedule was arranged to meet our needs. They were highly skilled, professional, and meticulous in approaching and completing a wide variety of remedial actions. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the pains the crew took to ensure a thorough clean-up after the completion of each task.
We were prepared for the worst during the insulation removal/replacement process, but were delighted that not one speck of insulation material remained on our living area after completion of that task. We were also pleased by the obvious camaraderie and teamwork of the work crew. The guys consistently demonstrated painstaking attention to detail . . . I’m talking about you Chris, Jaden, Michael, and Hunter. Well done, Gentlemen.
In closing, I would simply say that my wife and I can unhesitatingly offer our strongest possible recommendation for Barnes Wildlife Control in general, and for Jack Barnes and his crew in particular. We are more than pleased with their work and look forward to years of critter-free enjoyment. Thank you, Barnes Wildlife Control!”

A few bats managed to get into this home via a gap in a workshop door. Most homeowners are surprised by how small an opening a bat can enter through.
You can see this bat hanging outside its access point into this home. This entrance was due to a gap between the metal soffit and the building.
This bat is working its way up to an access point that allowed a colony into an attic. This access point was one of three the colony of bats was using to enter and exit the building.
“What Is Bat Exclusion!” The Only Humane Bat Removal Technique That Effectively Removes Bats From A Home, Business Or Buiding?
The word “exclude” means “to prevent someone or something entry to or stop someone or something from a place, group, or privilege. In our case, ‘bat exclusion” means more than preventing bats from entering buildings; it also means humanely removing bats out of a building and not allowing them to return.
So how does our Urbana Bat Removal Service team remove bats from a home or building? Essentially it is a five-step process:
- We locate where the bats are in your building and their numbers
- Next, we find every bat access point into your building
- We seal all but one or two of the main exit and entry points
- Then we place “bat valves,” a device that allows bats to leave but is unable to return, over those unsealed entry points
- Once all the bats have left your building, usually within 5 to 7 days, we remove the bat valves and seal the remaining openings.
Please note that a “bat exclusion” may not entail removing bats at all. A “bat exclusion” can also mean applying preventative procedures, so bats never enter your home or building in the first place. Having our Urbana Bat Removal Service crew do a top-to-bottom building inspection could save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Our experts will locate every possible vulnerability into your building, seal and repair them, making sure bats never gain access through those openings.
The Bat Valve is the 100% effective tool that humanely removes bats from your home or building. Coming in three different versions, the Bat Valve works over any opening or gap in a home and no matter the location.
We used the Bat Valve TBV-SG3 to remove a bat colony. Notice the bat below the Bat Valve attempting to return. Fortunately for this homeowner, the amazing Bat Valve prevents reentry.

Don’t Contaminate More Of Your Home By Doing Your Bat Contamination Cleanup That’s Best Left To Urbana Bat Removal Service.
Once bats have been excluded from your home or business it will be time for cleanup! A colony of bats can leave a horrendous mess in an attic, so the wise move is to hire a quality cleanup and decontamination company like Urbana Bat Removal Service and their crew of specialized bat cleanup experts.
In many instances, it’s vital to partition off the living and working quarters from the area that contained a bat infestation so that contaminated materials do not spread. A conventional bat infestation cleanout entails the elimination of guano, attic insulation, parts of a ceiling in living quarters below a bat-infested attic, attic flooring, or attic drywall contaminated by bat guano and pee.
Our Urbana Bat Removal Service team understands that partitioning the living and working spaces may be necessary to clean up contaminated materials, as seen in the photo to the right or below in mobile. Hand bagging contaminated materials may be required and not unusual during a bat contamination cleanup. The partitioning process stops the spread of any dried guano dust and contaminated attic materials to the living and working spaces.
When Urbana Bat Removal Service partitions off the area containing bat guano, urine, and other contaminated materials, we maintain a negative air pressure which draws contaminated air and dust in the working space to the outside and not back inside to living quarters. We perform this procedure by using air scrubbers that clean the air and help stop the spread of airborne contaminants in indoor spaces.
So let’s sum up the cleanup process of contaminated materials that our Urbana Bat Removal Service experts provide:
- We partition off the contaminated area from the living spaces
- Our team uses HEPA filtered air scrubbers that vents all contaminated air outside
- We use HEPA vacuum systems to remove all small materials
- Our crew bags all large contaminated materials that we can’t vacuum out and safely remove them from your building
- We wash all contaminated surfaces with bio-safe disinfectants and sterilizers, then deodorize the air removing odors forever.
- Finally, we can blown-in high-quality mold and mildew resistant insulation replacing all the removed contaminated insulation
