Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Fayetteville 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 North 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 Fayetteville 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 North 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 910-459-4358, 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 Fayetteville 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, I have read your article, unfortunately bats are getting into my house and we do not know where they are getting in. We have been unable to locate the site. My husband did seal a roof line and we did not have any issues for over a year. Now they are back. It is an old house built in the late 1800's lots of room in the ceiling and walls to enter on one side of the house and come out another. Where should we start first? And is it best to assume any anomaly in the eves, soffits and facia are potential entry sites? Thank you, Kelly

My response: Stand outside the house at dusk and, even better, dawn, and you will see them flying out or in, and then you'll know where the entry holes are.

Hi David, I have read your website and find it very helpful. I live in a condo, so my management company is supposed to deal with this, however, I have a question. I was told by them the company they wish to hire to remove the bats states by law (I live in Fayetteville NC) they cannot remove them until the end of September or they will loose their license. Would you agree. I know they are in the walls of my bedroom, I can hear them when I am in there, they have been in there for about 2 or 3 months. Would you think that I should not sleep in that room until they have been removed? I have suffered headaches and body aches for the past month, so not sure if the guano fumes are seeping in. It has been VERY hot and humid the last few months. Hope I'm not bothering you with too many questions. Thanks...
