Did you know bats can enter homes or other buildings through holes as small as a dime? It can be hard to locate all possible entry points, especially if you don't know what to look for, but we know what to look for.

Indiana Bat Removal Regulations 

The Indiana Bat (Myotis sodalis) is a federal and state listed endangered species. There are different laws and regulations in place by the government for bat removal procedures to protect this endangered species. 

The major regulations follow the hibernation and reproduction seasons of bats. It is not safe for Indiana homeowners to remove bats — for their own safety and for the bats safety. Never handle a bat, Call Critter Control of Bloomington and our experienced and knowledgeable experts will solve your bat problems safely and humanely. 

If you find a bat in your home during winter, Indiana law says you

  • Can’t evict bats outside. Bats are hibernating during winter and do not have access to their food source, flying insects, during this time. A bat forced outside during the winter will likely freeze to death. 
  • Can contact us at Critter Control of Bloomington to conduct an inspection and determine if the bats can be safely removed and relocated. 

If you find a bat in your home during summer (June 1- August 15), Indiana law says you
