I have bats!!!

Just had someone come out to verify that I have bats living in the soffits around the front of my house. Estimate was $850 to seal all the soffit vents and put in counter traps for them to get out, but not get back in.

Anyone know of anyone who can do it for cheaper?

Bats, like most animals, follow the path of least resistance. They flourish in areas abundant in food, shelter, and the absence of predators. If you live in an area that is uniquely habitable for any particular species of bat, donít be surprised if they try and move in.

3 things you can do:
1) stop feeding them!!!
2) Hire Min to come blue tape your house.
3) Hire Sniz to take care of your bats... hell if he can take care of Elk, he can take care of flying rats.

If they are vampire bats then get rid of them, most bats eat fruits and bugs and stuff...they actually are helping you. Just go to wal mart and buy a bb gun, or paintball gun...light them up
