Bat Exclusion and Bat-proofing

Benjamin was very pleasant and friendly during all communications. He provided a great deal of useful information and allowed generous amounts of time for any questions I had. He appeared very knowledgeable, experienced, and conscientious during all interactions and labour hours. Once he was hired he scheduled the work date for shortly thereafter. When he arrived he worked industriously into the evening hours and arrived early the next day to complete the work by afternoon. He explained the work in great detail and provided an excellent lifetime guarantee. He offered advice in the event of future home maintenance such as roof replacement and welcomed a telephone call at the time when those repairs would be considered. All told, a very nice man who I believed I could trust, and that is most comforting when hiring a contractor to do important and expensive work. Thank you Benjamin!

Bat proofing home

Benjamin was extremely responsive and answered all my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. He was at my house within 24 hours of being called and told me what to do in the meantime to give my family peace of mind.

Bat control

We have just had a very positive experience having the bats removed from our home. Benjamin Vaughn, owner of Bat Control Specialists came with his vast knowledge and outgoing personality. His willingness to share this information made us very comfortable with all the work that was needed. The work was completed efficiently, with skill and care. We chose Benjamin from the glowing reviews online and we couldn't be happier that we did.

Bat removal

Benjamin attended to our needs in a very professional way.
He attended promptly and completed the work quickly.
In addition, Benjamin was very willing to fix other issues he identifies as he performs his primary job.
Thanks, Doug

Bat proofing your home

Called Ben after having 3 bats in the house. Ben came by within 2 weeks and completely sealed the house with cages, netting, calking and an exit for the bats. ( if any were left ). Ben was very informative and seemed to really know what he was doing. No more bats!! We have no problem recommending Ben & his team.
Thank you Ben. We can sleep again.

Thanks for the kind words. (they were super friendly)
I should mention that a wildlife control company had tried and failed to bat-proof their home. They did some of the obvious work just not very well and used the wrong materials. It looked like they were trying to keep out the bats by making the home well..squirrel proof or something. Anyways we undid most of their work and redid it properly. As I always say bat problems need a bat specialist. Thanks for hiring us.

Bat Brigade - Army of 2

Benjamin and Dalton - only 2 gentlemen to tackle the unknown of our house; but they worked like an army of 100.

This is a lengthy write-up; but felt it to be important you know how great the service is that you receive.

When we purchased our 2 yr. old home; it came with extras that we didn’t know about “BATS”. We bought in Nov. 2012, started hearing a lot of scratching during springtime in 2 of our corner bedroom walls (thought it to be chipmunks, moles or squirrels; but found out it was bats crawling around and also started flying around in the house). We will be 4 yrs in this house as of Nov. 2016, took us a couple of years to realize we really had a problem.
Some issues that arouse - One bat this past winter found its way into my briefcase (I must of woke it up) anyway it started crawling up my leg in the vehicle on my way to work one day. Then this spring & summer 2016 we had bats flying inside our house. My husband googled on how to rid bats from our home and even created the exit mesh tube; as well as sealing up areas around the house and roof that he felt could stop the bats. This went on for months trying to guard against these mammals. We tried; but to no avail… We needed a specialist.

Searching on the internet, we successfully found Bat Control Specialists - BENJAMIN VAUGHAN.

Benjamin provided an estimated range over the phone according to the size and type of our home; but could not promise an exact price until he was on the job. When you hear the price it makes you very skeptical; because it is a lot of money. Plus; very hard to trust people you don’t know.

Let me try to help ease your mind …..Both Benjamin and Dalton impressed me.
- My husband was working, kids away and I was home alone. Felt safe and Benjamin treated me with respect by explaining everything to me.
- Benjamin informed me the job was going to be higher than he had quoted. I agreed for them to proceed. Dalton without hesitation went to work immediately, while Benjamin and I were still talking.
- They are both friendly, polite, professional, organized, determined to do a great job / hard workers
- There was always continual work being done and it was 30c+ and a very humid day in early September. Great teamwork.
- Cleaned up after themselves; you wouldn’t even know they were at your house
- Precision work… You would never know Benjamin added pieces to the house to close in sections and seal them. Looks like it was always part of the house.
- Don’t waste your time or waste money on materials; if you think you have a problem call Benjamin immediately, pay the price. He knows what he is doing and prides himself in doing it right.

Here is a prime example of the work ethic: Benjamin and Dalton started working at 11:30 am, at around 2 pm Benjamin knocked on the door and said he had to talk to me. He had a concern with the way the shingles were put on the roof and said there was moisture in some spots around the edge under some of the shingles. Originally Benjamin said he was just going to caulk around the edging of the roof; but said he couldn’t do it… He explained to me that when the house was built they never put DRIP EDGE FLASHING around the roof perimeter. Benjamin didn’t feel right just caulking when he knew he was going to be going around the roof anyway. So I went online and looked up this flashing and it states that not having this flashing can cause serious structural damage, mold, moisture and other problems to your house.
He said it isn’t code; but he would feel better knowing it is done right - it will help fix the problem with keeping the bats out and save me a tremendous amount of money in the long run. Benjamin did the drip edge flashing all around the whole house at NO ADDITIONAL COST; which would have been another $1,000 on top of the $2,500.00 job…….

This isn’t to say he gives free service; but to explain the work ethics regarding the pride he takes in what he does. WOW!!! Thank you, Benjamin Vaughan

Exceptional Work - Benjamin and Dalton. THANK YOU

Wow! high praise indeed thank you. On most houses we find and fix small leaks, often putting in flashings that roofers forgot (neglected?) to install. I don't want to be a leak fixer per se but I cannot just leave these things unfixed as I don't want my customers to have leaks or bats. We won't ignore these problems just because others have, and while I don't actively solicit compliments for these extras, we do like it when people say kind things about us. thank you again.

Bat control

Unknown to us, we purchased our home with an existing bat problem 9 years ago. We own a fieldstone home with a gazzillion possible places for bats to enter. Benjamin found their entry point and sealed the home extensively and professionally. He is meticulous! We are extremely pleased with the results and feel comfortable having overnight guests now.
Thank you, Benjamin!

Denise is being too kind here. The truth is that we had to return some weeks after bat-proofing the home because another bat got in. It took us another six hours of inspections touch ups and additional work before we found the problem (but we found it). I only admit this because I wish to stress that despite 26 years experience even I can miss things.
So I was astonished that Denise has given me such a nice review under the circumstances. However, I believe her to be a super smart lady who understands that the true measure of any contractor (or person) is not whether we are perfect (none of us are) or whether we make mistakes (we all do sometimes) but whether we fix our mistakes and stand by our promises. I did and she rewarded me.
Thank you Denise, I am truly humbled.

Bat proofing our home.

We had a few bats flying around inside our home recently. Called Ben the owner of the Bat Specialist company and even though he was super busy he managed to squeeze us in. Great job done, very thorough! Ben knows everything about bats. Great company! Thanks Ben.
