Hey there, neighbor!
Got some uninvited guests flapping around your attic or chimney?
If you've been hearing some strange noises in the night, it's time to face the music: You might have a bat problem.
But don't worry, this isn't a horror movie and we're here to help!
Here at Meerkat Pest Control, we specialize in bat control in Albany, NY, and we’re experts in understanding their behavior while also respecting the laws protecting them.
Now let's dive into how we can help evict these friendly fliers from your property.
The Telltale Signs of a Bat Infestation

In the Attic
Those scratching sounds you hear late at night? It could be these little brown fliers cozying up in your attic or wall voids. And yes, it's not a ghost haunting your house, but it could be just as spooky if you don't address it.
In the Eaves
If they find their way into your eaves, they can roost there year-round! And if they find an opening, they might just slip down the wall and pop out under your baseboard in your home. Yikes!
In the Chimney
Yup, they do love a good chimney roost, even if there are tiny breaks in the brick this can give them access to your walls and insulation. Most problems occur at your chimney tie-in, where they can gain access to an exterior wall or your attic.
Our Bat Removal Services

Listen, we get it. You've got winged squatters in your belfry, and you're not exactly thrilled about it! But before you start swinging that broom around—please take a deep breath. We've got a plan, and it doesn't involve any harm or those superhero stunts.
We're all about sealing up any potential doorways, bidding adieu to those existing colonies, and providing long-term protection against any future winged invaders.
You can now kick back, grab some popcorn, and binge-watch your favorite show, knowing your pad is a no-fly zone for them.
Methods and Materials
We don't mess around when it comes to keeping them out. We carry out an epic 12-point inspection of your roof, making sure all areas are sealed up with bat-resistant materials. We're as thorough as Sherlock Holmes on a caffeine buzz.
Ever had a party crasher who just won't take the hint? That's what it's like when your ridge vent rolls out the red carpet for these critters. But don't sweat it, we've got just the solution. We install Ridge-Guard, a cost-effective and permanent solution that's like putting a lock on the cookie jar.
For more complex cases, we bust out our secret weapon: the Intellikat Digital Monitoring System. It's like having Batman's detective skills on our side. This high-tech gizmo gives us visual confirmation that these critters have vamoosed and the secondary entry points are ALL sealed up.
Now, don't get it twisted. We're not about exterminating them. Nah, that ain't our style. Instead, we play the role of a polite but firm landlord, showing these winged tenants the exit using a one-way door device. It's all very civilized.
Once we've got them out, we go into our overdrive mode. We seal up all the entry points (no re-entry here!), vacuum the droppings (because nobody wants that lying around), and sanitize the space (because cleanliness is next to bat-lessness).
Say Later, Bats!
Remember, bats are actually beneficial to our environment and our yard's ecosystem. They eat a ton of mosquitos every evening, so while we want them out of your home, we still appreciate their role in nature.
So, let's show them the door, safely and effectively.
