Bat removal

I had noticed some bats flying in and out of my garage for about one year. Didn't think much of it. After all, bats are creatures with benefits to the environment. However, when I started hearing scratching in the walls, I immediately started looking for a bat removal company. Researched the internet and contacted Benjamin. He is very professional, knowledgeable and completed the job in record time. I am confident that the issue has been taken care of to my satisfaction without any harm to the creatures.

I remember this job because you had the largest infestation of bats that I saw in 2014. The odor of bat urine by the garage was quite strong and there were a lot of bat droppings on the ground. I also remember that the bricks had a very irregular face which made enormous gaps where the soffits intersected the wall. The bats took full advantage of these gaps to move in and had clearly been there for a while. It was quite a challenge for me to seal these gaps in an innocuous manner even after doing this type of job hundreds of times. Thanks for the kind words and high rating(10 my favorite number)

Bat removal

From my first phone conversation with Benjamin I new that he was a specialist in Bat Removal. Benjamin's work was neat, and clean, he respected my home and his work showed that. As promised within a couple of days my home was bat free, I could sit on my back porch and have coffee once again. I would highly recommend Benjamin he is very personable and very professional. Thank you Benjamin

Thank you for the kind review. I remember your home because despite being well built and newer it was really infested with bats. It just goes to show that even the best built homes have many places that bats can move in thru. I also remember your kindness in letting us use the bathroom and offering us cold drinks which, on a hot day is very much appreciated. Thank you again.

Ugh! my first non 10 out of 10 ouch! There goes my perfect record. I guess that 9 out of 10 is really good still but ouch! They seemed perfectly happy with the service I provided, which I am glad of. I know they have had no more bat problems. Yet just 9 out of 10. This is gonna drive me nuts. If there is anything I can do to bump this rating up to a 10 let me know. Seriously! LOL

Bat Exclusion, Bat Proofing

We recently moved into a 30 yr old home and to our dismay found that we had a sizable bat infestation. After doing much research I decided to contact Bat Control Specialists. Benjamin Vaughan answered promptly and took the time to listen to my problem thoroughly. He put me at ease immediately and said that no infestation was insurmountable and outlined what his company would do to get rid of the bats and (more importantly) keep them from returning. Benjamin's knowledge of his subject matter is encyclopedic (that's wikipedic to all of you new fangled folk) and he will take considerable time and care to explain the wheres, whys and hows to you and to answer any question you may have. While on our job I heard him take calls and take the same time with each potential client (while he worked!). I find his professionalism very refreshing in this day and age of declining customer service and he is to be commended for it. His thoroughness is unbelievable ( he actually looked at my house on Google Earth while I was talking to him initially so that he would have a better understanding of the situation and it's possible scope!)
When Benjamin and crew arrived on site days later, they were very courteous and professional and explained everything they were going to do beforehand and they took the time to show me what materials they would use and why. They surveyed the situation and installed bat exclusion vents (one way doors) at the main points of ingress and egress. This would allow the bats to leave the building but not to re-enter. They then proceeded to seal every single nook and cranny that a bat might use, and I mean EVERY tiny little nook and cranny. They worked very methodically, systematically and carefully and went over every inch of the house. The work they did and the material they used did nothing to spoil the appearance of our home and you would be very hard pressed to even see evidence of their work unless I pointed it out to you. They cleaned up the site thoroughly after they were done and left zero evidence of their work.We are very pleased with the work they did and I'm happy to say still bat free. It's not an expense we had factored on but as with anything in life, you get what you pay for and I'm extremely pleased that we chose the right people for the job. And I made a new friend to boot because Benjamin is just one of those people.
I highly recommend Bat Control Specialists and Benjamin Vaughan.

Bat Proofing

We purchased our new home in a rural community in January. We have seen a few bats at dusk hovering around the home and coming out from an opening in the front of our garage. Since our garage was fully dry walled, we were sure that they weren't coming into the home. We then noticed that they were also at the side of our home and making their way into the wall between the eavesdrop & the roof canal. We were still sure that our walls were all properly sealed up and they would not make their way into our home. Well we got the shock one evening at 12:30 as we were watching TV. We noticed that one of them had come into the home. We chased it out of the home, after a few hours of trying to catch it. We then decided to call Bat Control Specialists and Ben answered right away. He took the time to answer all of our questions over the phone and made his way over to our home that evening. While speaking with Ben in our kitchen, he did get to see first hand where the bats were exiting my home. He came back the next day to bat proof our home and he worked all day tirelessly finishing bat proofing our whole home. Benjamin was very punctual. He works quickly and diligently, cleaning up after himself and he was always very polite. I couldn't have asked for a nicer man to take care of our little problem. Benjamin is very knowledgeable in what he does. He gave us quite a bit of information on bats and you can tell right away that he is really passionate about what he does and how he does it. He installed a few one way bat doors. In which they can leave, however, they couldn't get back in. Ben followed up with us the next day and then again a few days later, and then came back after about 15 days to remove the one way doors. We were extremely happy with Ben and level of service that we received. I would most definitely recommend this company to anyone. Thank you very much Ben!

Thanks for the kind words. I remember when I first looked at your house I found evidence that someone in the past had attempted to fix the bat problem, probably a wildlife control company. Their workmanship was typical of non specialists in that they sealed a few obvious entry points that were easily accessed but all the high up stuff and complex work that needed doing had been skipped. I remember you said it must have been done before you bought the house, which is good because it means you were not ripped off unlike the previous owners. When I bat-proofed your home it took a ton of caulking and installation of a lot of custom flashings. I also remember fixing a couple of leaky areas on the roof and having to kill a few bees nests. I also remember your hospitality in offering me cold drinks which is huge on a hot day. Finally I remember your awesome little dog too, such a sweetheart.
Thanks again.

bat removal

We only ever had 3-4 bats in the house each summer, but it made each evening filled with dread about the possibility that one might show up. I was not happy about the price and considered alternatives but Ben made some good points. He came and after 7 hours had filled every opening in our brick century home, leaving 3 escape routes for the bats. Since then we have had all the weather conditions that encourage the bats to make an appearance - cool weather, hot nights, thunderstorms - and not a single flutter! I feel the money spent was a worthwhile investment and would encourage anyone to check this company out first!

Bat proofing my house

Benjamin came to our house and did an amazing job. We had a bad experience with another specialist. After Benjamin and his guys came and took care of the problem there were no more bats in our attic. e are truly grateful for him and his guys for getting rid of this very stressful problem. Don't use anyone else, because these guys are all you need, honestly.

I thank you for the kind words. I also hope you wrote a negative review for the other company that took a bunch of your money and failed to fix your bat problem. I know they were a general pest control company which as I tell everyone are not qualified to fix bat problems. It really is a speciality. Unfortunately you were one of many thousands of customers I have spoken to over the years who have been ripped off by these types of companies. I know it can sound self serving coming from me but bat control work done correctly requires a specialist.

Bat exclusion services

As the owner of a heritage home in Cobourg ON built in 1848, I was dismayed to find that our home was inhabited by bats. The surprise appearance of these uninvited guests gliding through our living room in the evening was especially frightening to my then 6 year old daughter. I contacted Benjamin Vaughan of Bat Control Specialists (BCS) who promptly provided me with an estimate and plan to effectively exclude these bats from our home and prevent their return. Mr. Vaughan was knowledgeable and experienced and effectively completed the necessary caulking and installation of one way bat doors to eliminate bats from the premises. Mr. Vaughan and his crew exercised great care when working on our heritage home and the caulking that was used was invisible when dry, preserving the external facade of our home. BCS guarantees its work and we did not experience any bat reinfestation. I would recommend Benjamin Vaughan and BCS without hesitation to anyone seeking an effective and humane approach to managing a bat infestation.
