Winston Salem 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 Winston Salem.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Winston Salem 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 Winston Salem 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 336-303-4150, 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 Winston Salem 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 attempted to reach Winston Salem Animal Control as I have a bat problem, but no one has called me back. Do you have any other suggestions? Soon the weather will change and they'll be a mass exodus from my home- I'd really like to make it a permanent condition that I don't have to live with bats in my walls, attic, basement, or crawl space anymore. I think 8 bats in a period of a year and a half signifies more than just a coincidence... Please help!

Hello David, We have heard a scratching sound on and off for quite some time now. We hear it above 2 rooms of the house. We had somebody come out last year for mice and they saw nothing. So now we are thinking it might be bats. My husband saw one bat in the garage attic a couple weeks ago. This has become a huge problem because my daughter is afraid so sleep in her room if she hears the noise. Do you think you would have time to come out and survey our situation and see if you can figure out what we might have? We are in Winston Salem NC. We can make anytime work! I will try to call tomorrow, but thought I would start with an email while it was stressing me out! Thank you so very much for your help!
