Australian Bat Control

Bats, not to be confused with the larger “Flying Fox”, are a very small, usually insectivorous, animal which most people rarely see. There are quite a large number of species found in Australia. They are unobtrusive and harmless, sometimes seen flying around street lights at night feeding on flying insects.
Echo-location is used as a form of “seeing” in the dark and they have a highly developed “ultrasonic” hearing capability.
In the rare circumstance where they may become a problem by living in ceilings and attics, and thus create a health problem with their accumulated droppings, they can be harmlessly relocated using an ultrasonic or an ultrasonic/sonic combination device.
Talk to your Bird Gard dealer on advice as to which device best suits your circumstances. ALL bats are protected species and cannot be harmed or killed.

  • Hi Birdgard
    We have a holiday house and now have micro bats our adult can will not bring their family or let us stay at the house. We believe they are roosting in the chimney and have blocked the entrance. Open the house at dusk and even smoking them out. What can we do? We cannot use the house as everyone is too scared to come down.
    Would really appreciate your help. We have a pestrel mouse repeller which seems to work for mice. Thankyou for your help

  • We have a lot of bats in the trees just outside our unit’s windows
    It is a particularly large tree which attracts a lot of bats
    They are very very noisy at night and screech all night keeping my daughter and I awake at night
    Wondering if there’s anything we can do
    We dont have a balcony; the trees are just outside our windows
    Would love your recommendation on how to rid of these bats without hurting them?

  • I have a returning colony of flying foxes in trees to the side on my house. Is there a way to harmlessly control and move them on. I live in a small rural town in SE Qld and so there is plenty for them around but just not near my house. Can you help? Morgan

  • Hi guys,
    I purchased a microbat 4 speaker a few years ago and it has been great. The bats have safely moved elsewhere so no more hygiene problem with the droppings. I was wondering if I can set it up in the shed at times to deter rodents and or snakes. Will it be effective for that too.

  • Hi, I would like to know if the electronic devices to repel microbats hurts dogs hearing? I love my dog but I am over the amount of micro bat shit I have to deal with. Been living with them in nature for over 30 years but they have bred up in numbers and it is over the top.

    I’m pretty sure I have micro bats nesting in my wall cavity. They are noisy and getting louder. We can’t find how they get in or out. We are getting desperate and are wondering if we need to remove part of the wall to flush them out. An r pensive solution !!!

    Can you help? How can we get rid of them??
