Fort Lauderdale Bat Control

You are visiting this site ( is run by my friend David) because you have bats in your Fort Lauderdale home or building. You may have just discovered them - flying out of your home at dusk, leaving scattered droppings below. Or you may have known about a large population of bats in your building for some time, but now the situation is getting out of hand, with hundreds or thousands of bats, and a strong odor. Regardless, a colony of bats in a building is a serious matter. The colony will never leave, it will only grow in size, you don't like the sight or odor of the animals, and the droppings they leave behind can be hazardous to your health, not to mention the risk of rabies.

We can help you. We are Florida's foremost experts on bat colony removal. We remove 100% of the bats, with a perfect success rate, we do not harm a single bat, we completely bat-proof your home or building, and we clean and decontaminate the mess that they leave behind.

Superior Bat Exclusion: We specialize in Florida bat control, and the two primary colonizing species of bats, the Brazilian Free-Tail Bat (Tadarida brasiliensis), and the Evening Bat (Nycticeius humeralis). These two species in particular love to live in the attics or walls of homes and buildings. They form large groups, known as maternity colonies. These groups of bats never leave, and can grow to a very large size. Every summer, the female bats give birth to their baby bats, which are unable to fly for about eight weeks. When we come to your property, we inspect the building and study your bat problem often with a night watch. We identify the species of bat, colony size, all of their entry and exit points, and how much waste they have left inside the building. We remove all of the bats via specialty exclusion methods, such as seen in the photo to the left. Not a single bat is harmed during the process, and they are all evicted. We seal up and completely bat-proof the building. We remove all droppings and decontaminate the attic.

Bat Email from Customer:
Hi David,
I have a question about bats roosting in attics. By the time you discover they're there, any rule of thumb about how many there might be?

I live in a mobile home near Fort Lauderdale, and the other night my cat and I awoke to the sound of bats scrambling inside the soffit vent, a couple hours before dawn. The spot is right above my bedroom window, so we could see where they were getting in. With four cats, I'm thinking that this hasn't been going on for too long, else they would have been doing the "omigod-I-have-to-get-up-there!" dance that Willow did the other night. On the other hand, I noticed a really rank smell earlier this summer, so...?

I can see where the soffit screen slid aside, leaving a gap. I read that a flap of window screen could be stapled along one edge against the gap so they could get out, but not be able to figure out how to get back in. I'll try that first. I like bats, and am happy to have them around, but I'm surrounded by woods and they don't need to be roosting in my roof.

Another question: do all bats leave the colony at night, or do some stay inside? Since they eat so much, I'm assuming that every bat would have to leave the roost at least once during each night, yes?

Thanks so much for your help!

Kim - The number of bats can vary.  I've seen groups as small as 20 bats, and as big as 7000.  If you've just discovered them you've probably got a smaller colony of 200 or less, and mobile homes usually have smaller groups.  Most of the bats do leave every night, which helps with our special one-way-door eviction process.  Call us at 954-703-5683 to schedule an appointment, and we can come out and take a look!
