Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of removing bats depends on the number of bats and where they are located. Removal from an outdoor space or soffit is generally around $50 to $200. Indoor removal can be significantly more, often priced around $400 to $600 for a medium sized colony. A large colony of bats can cost in the thousands to remove, although this is rare.

The various services involved in bat control, including the inspection, removal, permanent exclusion, and cleanup are often considered separate jobs that carry individual prices. Sealing up holes often runs between $20 and $50 per entryway. Cleaning can vary between $500 to $8400 depending on how extensive the work needs to be.

If bats are discovered during a time of year when they can be safely removed - there are no babies present and bats are not hibernating instead of flying nightly - they can be removed in a few days. Bats must be given the time to fly out of your home on their own, which they will do approximately every night when they go in search of food. They are not captured or manually handled.

In seasons in which bats are breeding or hibernating, bat exclusion will be unsuccessful because not all bats are regularly leaving the home. Some months must pass before bat abatement can begin. Your wildlife control professional or local wildlife agency can help you determine timelines.

Approximately 5% of bats carry rabies. Any bite or scratch by a bat should necessitate a rapid doctor or emergency room visit for rabies testing and a treatment if required. When treated quickly, rabies is 100% curable. Waiting until symptoms become apparent could result in serious health complications or death. Yet despite the risks, fewer than 10 people die annually in the U.S. from rabies, and most bats are harmless.

Bat exclusion is the recommended process for all bat removal, so it is sufficient for all types of properties. Most business and industrial property owners select professional bat control for safety reasons and because the properties tend to be larger, meaning solutions must be scaled up.
