Greenville 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 Greenville.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Greenville 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 Greenville 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 864-642-0295, 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 Greenville 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 David, I have had bats in my attic for years! I had my roof replaced in 1997 and noticed them shortly after that but they could have been there before that too. Anyway, I am a disabled widow and am on SS disability and don't have ANY extra money. Do you know what it typically costs to get rid of the bats and clean up my attic? Is there any place that you know of that would help me with the payment? I have asked around but no one seems to know anything! I live near Greenville SC. If you know of anything or anyone that can help me, I sure would appreciate it. I am mostly worried about the bat urine and guano and my health. My husband died from lung cancer in 1996 and I am so afraid I will get that too. He was 25 years older than me and now I am having lung problems and am scared. I have been concerned about this for quite awhile but I just can't get ahead, money wise! I am looking for a part time position but I have to be very picky with what kind of job I get because of my disability. If there is anything you can tell me to help, I sure would appreciate it! Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Lisa

Bats in the attic won't cause lung cancer. Only in VERY RARE cases do they cause any lung problems. I live in Orlando, so you'll have to find someone in your area to help you.

I am having a bat issue at my house in Greenville. I thought I had eliminated the problem last year, but have now caught 4 bats inside the home at night in the last 2 days. Can you give me a quote on the price you charge to remove, and seal up areas of the house, and also, do you finance? The house is 3 stories with a usable attic, and is appx 4200 sqft. Please let me know what you charge for the inspection, removal, and sealing of the house to prevent further bats.
