About Harrisburg Bat Removal

Welcome to harrisburgbat.com. We are the only qualified bat removal company in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Bats are often called spooky and scary, especially because of their connections to horror movies. However, bats are essential to the ecosystem, and they help keep nasty bugs away! However, this does not mean that they have a free pass to live anywhere. Having bats in your home is a nightmare, and while they help outdoors, they are pests indoors. They can wreak havoc in your home, and they will leave nasty odors, bugs, and all sorts of mess. Removing them isn't easy either, because bat control is specialty work. We never trap bats nor poison them, because this is illegal and unethical to do. Instead, we use live exclusion methods. Each state has their own regulations in removing bats, but we specialize in bat exclusion, which does not harm or trap a single bat in the process of removing them from your home. Our bat exclusion device removes the bat using a special one way door that lets them out of the area, but unable to get back in. Once we have confirmed that there are no more bats inside, we will then seal shut any entry point to prevent any future accidents. Our inspection process is very thorough, and we make sure to identify all entry points in your property, so that bats will not return. Our specialists are also trained in clean up, and we offer multiple services including cleaning, deodorizing, decontaminating your home from the harmful bat guano. We also offer consultation services in case you are still unsure what kind of pests can be lingering in your home. We operate 24-7-365, so don't hesitate to call us at 717-312-5451 to discuss your bat problem and schedule a fast appointment.


We are experts at removing bats from residential properties. Whether you have a single bat trapped in your house, a colony roosting in your attic, and/or various other problems, there is no need to worry! During our removal process, we make sure to inspect your entire home carefully, tracking down all the entrypoints bats are using to invade your place. Next, we perform a process called live exclusion (where no bats are harmed and all exit your property), then seal all entry holes completely shut. We also take care of the cleanup process after, so your home is safe and clean!

Besides residential areas, we also have a wealth of experience removing bats from commercial properties! We begin by investigating the area for possible bat entrances, covering holes even as small as 1/4 of an inch. Through our live exclusion process, bats leave the building through one-way exits, and we seal up every hole afterward. Once the bats have been removed, we perform a cleanup process. This includes dealing with guano, replacing damaged insulation, and decontaminating the place.

Equipment for Removing a Bat

Removing bats is going to require certain equipment. Like all animals, there is a specific way that you are going to want to remove them. This means finding and implementing the most appropriate equipment for the job.

For anyone who has not been in this situation before, however, finding the right equipment seems like a monumental task. You want the bat, or bats, gone and you want the job done right the first time – how are you going to do that?

Luckily, there is a specific type of equipment that works well here and that is easy for everyone to use. It is the go to for homeowners and professionals alike for all types and sizes of bat problems.

The Equipment

The number one equipment to use is an exclusion trap or funnel. These work, are safe, and are far better than alternatives. The best part is that they are incredibly easy to use, too. Anyone can use them on their property and see great results.

You can find exclusion traps cheaply nearly anywhere. Any store that sells traps and similar equipment will have an exclusion trap that works for bats.

Compared to cages and other methods of removal, and other equipment out there, exclusion traps come out above. They do the job safely and effectively, with few to no downsides.

Using the Equipment

Using exclusion traps and funnels is easy to do. So long as you know where the bats are entering and exiting your property, you can set up the trap right away and let it do its work.

Before setting up the trap, make sure there is only one access point. Seal up any others, leaving a single point of entry and exit for the bats. This ensures that they cannot find another way in once out.

Set the trap up as instructed, giving the bats a way to leave but not exit the property. When they leave through the exclusion trap or funnel, they are stuck on the outside. They cannot reenter, no matter how hard they try.

Since the bats will have to leave eventually, likely at night to go find food, you can trust that this will work. When they all leave, remove the trap and seal up the final entry point.

The equipment for bat removal is simple – exclusion trap. Other than basic safety gear, there is not much else you are going to need.
