Raleigh 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 Raleigh.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Raleigh 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 Raleigh 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 919-443-9712, 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 Raleigh 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, My name is Donna. My husband and I are fixing up an old farmhouse in Raleigh North Carolina.This house has lots of work to be done before it is livable. Windows broken out and lots of small openings at the roof area. Our plans are to replace windows and vinyl siding. This house is approximately 100 years old and has not been lived in for about 5 years. My question to you is: Can we use mothballs to temporarily distract them until we can finish the windows and siding, and block all entry points? We have only been there during daytime and have only seen 2, although there is evidence that there are way more than that in the attick by all the feces. I know the best way is to do the extraction but hoping we can use the moth balls for temporary fix until we can get all the windows in and the siding on. We believe we can get all that work done in about 2 weeks (my husband is a carpenter by trade) so we along with our 4 adult sons will be doing all the work.

Hi David, I heard a noise in a bathroom wall that I thought was a mouse and later I heard something running above the basement ceiling tile. I set a few traps for mice but they were untouched for days. Now a small "little brown bat" fell into a box in the basement from above he ceiling and was trapped by the lounge chair in the box. I took the whole box outside and carefully opened the lounge chair and got him out. He took off a minute later. I then looked in the access hole to the attic and found one dead bat who died a long time ago. I think they are coming in a bath fan vent hole on the outside of the house that has 1/2" cracks. Can you give me any kind of ballpark quote to remove and set exclusion devices? I live near Flushing. Thanks

Hi David, We have some bats in our attic and my wife is not very happy. The grandchildren saw some fly out of our two story gable vent that also has a chimney on that end of the house. I went out at dusk tonight and saw about 25 fly out. Another problem is that we have a whole house fan in the ceiling of the upstairs hallway with the louvers that open when the fan is on. We hardly ever use this fan, maybe in the early spring or late fall. The problem now is one or more of the bats have fallen down onto the metal louver and are dancing all over it. Of course this is right outside our bedroom door... not good. We live in New Bern. I see you have listed bat exclusion companies in Raleigh and Fayetteville, but do know of anyone in or closer to New Bern? Thanks... (I need some help soon or the wife is moving out) ;)
