Your Bat Removal Services questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does bat removal cost near me?

Bat removal costs $250 to $600 on average for a maximum of 5 bats. The cost of bat removal is $600 to $1,500 for up to 50 bats. Prices are $1,500 to $4,500 to remove a bat colony of up to 200 bats on a two-story house with cleanup.

  • A bat inspection costs $100 to $325.
  • Bat guano cleaning costs $500 to $5,000 according to the size of the damages.
  • Bat exclusion doors cost $100 to $400 per entry. These one-way exits prevent bats from reentering.

How do I know I have a bat infestation?

You typically have a bat infestation when:

  • You hear scratching and squeaking sounds coming from the ceiling or walls.
  • You find bat droppings, or "guano," beneath eaves and overhangs.
  • Milky urine stains appear on your windows.
  • You discover brown or black residues near entry points.
  • During twilight hours, you see bats flying out of your roof to hunt.

How long does bat remediation take?

Bat remediation in a 1-story home takes between 2 to 4 days, while a 2-story home with a substantial bat colony might take up to a week. The removal process depends on the severity of the infestation, the roof incline, and the height of the ladders needed.

If the house is older and in need of repairs along the roofline perimeter, then additional time is necessary for sealing those areas.

During what time of the year can you remove bats?

The optimal time of year for bat removal is in late summer or early autumn. In Northeastern America, many bat species migrate to their hibernation locations by the beginning of September. However, some larger species of brown bats choose to hibernate within buildings.

Wait until all the baby bats are capable of flying before attempting to evict them since bats are considered an endangered species.

Does homeowners insurance cover bat removal?

Bat removal is generally not covered by homeowners insurance, as this service is a maintenance expense. However, some policies may cover the costs of cleanup and repairs stemming from bat-related damage, though this coverage varies depending on the specific type of insurance.

Are bats dangerous to humans?

Although bats don't attack humans, they can carry dangerous diseases such as rabies. Additionally, bat droppings may spread various viruses, respiratory illnesses, and fungal infections.

Who do I call for bat removal?

To remove bats, you can call wildlife removal services or environmental consultants. However, don't call exterminators for bat removal, as many bat species are federally protected due to their endangered status. Check state laws to avoid fines.

Before hiring a wildlife removal service near you, be sure to:

  • Get price lists from 3 people who've done this job for 5 years or more.
  • Check their reviews on Google and here on HomeGuide.
  • Verify their wildlife management license and liability insurance.
  • Beware of the lowest prices that result in poor-quality services.
  • Keep a copy of their terms of service, warranties, and the estimate.
  • Don't make a final payment until after the job is complete.

Which questions should I ask a bat removal service?

Ask the following questions to help choose the best bat removal specialist:

  • What is your experience in bat removal?
  • What methods do you advise for removing the bats and preventing their return?
  • How will you inspect my property to locate bat colonies?
  • Do you employ humane techniques in removing bats?
  • Can you guarantee that the bats will not return for at least one year?
  • What is the expected timeline for completely evicting the bat colony?
  • When can you start, or must you wait until the breeding season is over?
  • Could you provide references from previous clients?
  • What are the potential risks associated with bat removal?
  • Do you offer services to clean up after the bats are gone?
  • What measures will you take to seal potential entry points?
