What are Nuisance Bats?

Bats are not PESTS that require Control.   Bat management is tricky &  misinformation is abundant = so whether you plan to do it yourself or hire a professional, please do your research before the project begins. If you plan to hire a professional get references, ask questions, & test THEIR knowledge (… see Management Guidelines).   Most exclusion related mortality is the result of ignorance & misinformation.  Education is the key — so please keep reading & spread the word.

The loss of roosting habitat is a major threat to bat populations world wide.  Over two dozen species successfully adapted to declines in natural sites by roosting in ‘man-made’ structures.  Evidence of bat activity includes staining around exterior openings and gaps (1/2 inch or greater), guano accumulations on walls & surfaces below a roost entrance, strong musky odor, high pitched chirps or squeaks.  A small colony (<100) may not be noticed, but larger colonies are often considered an unwanted nuisance. Unfortunately their successful adaptation has backfired in a major way & urban bat populations are extremely vulnerable. 

Our long term research on urban bat  populations began in 1993, while Laura was working toward her Master degree at UCF (thesis focused on bat houses & urban bats)..  We were the first Florida organization, focused solely on the conservation & protection of native bats and the first to successfully use bat houses as a management tool.

We provide management information for do-it-yourselfers and management services that are research & conservation based. 

WE are NOT a pest control or nuisance wildlife removal company —  we are a 501c3 conservation organization & the only non profit organization that actively provides bat management services  - it is one of our most important conservation efforts.  Each project is incorporated into our long term research on urban bat populations .  We view each project as an opportunity to educate the public & protect / conserve urban bat populations.

Looking for Do it Yourself Methods?

Eviction and Exclusion Methods 

FBN management projects are Guaranteed for life. We use only proven methods that ensure bats can leave the building safely (= eviction), but they can’t get back in (exclusion). The process may take a considerable amount of time, every project is unique & we don’t cut corners.  The goal is to ensure the safety of people and bats with long-term ‘win-win’ solutions that keep everyone safe and in their own home

Since the bats must move elsewhere, we strongly encourage the installation of Bat Houses to mitigate roost loss see Mitigation —
