Nice Bats

About twenty years ago my wife and I purchased a house that just happened to be full of bats. When the first bat flew into our bedroom at 3:00am we thought it was a fluke. Unfortunately after ten or so bats, flying through the house over a short period of time, we realized we had a problem. Show more

About twenty years ago my wife and I purchased a house that just happened to be full of bats. When the first bat flew into our bedroom at 3:00am we thought it was a fluke. Unfortunately after ten or so bats, flying through the house over a short period of time, we realized we had a problem.

We began asking everyone we knew about how to get rid of bats; we went to the city animal control and Game, Fish & Parks as well. A volunteer at the Game, Fish & Parks advised us to put up a bat house in our yard. Unfortunately, bats will not live in a bat house if they already have a house to live in. We also hired a pest control company, all they did was put mothballs all over inside our house, which just stank up the house! The bats stayed and my wife moved out (due to the mothballs.)

I eventually found out about exterior exclusion. This method is proven to allow bats out safely and to keep them from re-entering the residence. My wife moved back in and the bats have stayed out!

Review of PHI Decks by

· Plymouth

PHI built a 3 season porch for us and almost 3 years later we remain completely satisfied. The quality of the work was excellent and the guys that run the company are very trustworthy and great people. If we moved and built another 3 season porch or deck we'd make one call to PHI.

We're redoing my parents roof and their chimney needs some repair work as well. Is it better to do the masonry work before or after we do the rest of the roof?

You can proform both jobs at the same time if you are good at what you do. I have in the past grinded a Grove in the brick chimney all four sides then used a brake to bend a little half inch lip on th ... read more
