Columbia Bat Removal

Not all wildlife removal companies are the same. Some have experience with bat removal projects, and are familiar with the proper methods for bat exclusion. But others use incorrect techniques, such as bat traps, summer exclusions, or worse, fumigants. Do your research before you hire someone! I personally recommend our field technician for bat control in Columbia.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Columbia for many years, and he abides by these bat removal principles:

  • Always perform a proper live exclusion.
  • Never use poisons or fumigants or kill bats.
  • Never use traps or attempt to relocate bats.
  • Never do a removal during the maternity season.
  • Seal all entry points shut with guarantee.
  • Offer attic cleanup and decontamination.
  • Properly South Carolina licensed and insured.
As I discuss repeatedly on this website, bat removal projects are not easy, and not for amateurs. I have seen many horrible attempts at bat colony removal throughout the years, done both by do-it-yourself homeowners and by incompetent companies. Never hire a Columbia pest control company that uses poisons for rodent or insect control. They often attempt the same approach for bats. Not only is this incredibly destructive and illegal in South Carolina, but it results in disaster for the homeowner, and does not actually solve the problem. It's very important that the removal of bats from the attic of your home is done in the correct manner, and there is only one correct way, with a live bat exclusion. To read more about this process, read my bats in the attic home page.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 803-832-2495, talk to them, and make sure that they understand what they are doing, and that they have experience. Be sure that they do abide by the principles I outlined above. This is not just for the sake of the bats - I'm no tree hugger - it's for the sake of doing the job correctly, for you and your property. The fact that it's good for the bats as well is a lucky coincidence. And really, bats are good animals, which I'm sure you realize. I hope you have a good experience with your Columbia bat control project. You can email me personally if you have any problems with our tech, and I will talk to him, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

Hi we have a huge colony in our attic (at least 75) . We need to get them out, We fixed this problem before and they were gone for 7yrs , but the have pushed there way through screen in our attic again. We live in South Carolina near Columbia, can we get them out in Aug? or should we wait till Fall. We did get two in our house from them falling in the attic fan. I am concerned as I have 2 children under 9 in the home. Its very expensive to have someone do it for us so we are hoping to do this again by our selves. Thanks.

David, I live in Columbia SC in a split level house. We noticed what we thought were bird/mouse droppings on our trash can which is directly under one of our eaves. When I went into the attic I see the droppings on the inside and also about 20 bats hanging on the hardware cloth (outside) covering the eave vent. I researched companies that provide bat removal here in Alexandria but they all seem to have only a few reviews. Usually one good and two or three bad. The complains seem to center around the long term rather expensive contract that comes with the removal that seems to have mixed results. Is there any firm here in the area that you would recommend. Yes I know that I can go to the 2014 directory but it lists these same companies. Any help would be appreciated.
