Charleston 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 Charleston.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Charleston 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 West Virginia 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 Charleston 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 West Virginia, 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 304-306-7050, 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 Charleston 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!

David: We have a bat problem at our house. They are in the attic and coming into our living area. I've removed about 6 that have gotten into our family room. Can you help? We leave for a different part of Charleston West Virginoa on Thursday and I want to figure out where they are getting into the attic and the house asap. When are you available? I have a bat and babies in my attic. I read your information on how to remove them. If exclusions should not be done at this time of the year, won't the bat poop just keep getting worse until the end of August? Also I'm concerned about them getting into the living area. Your advice seems sound, but its hard knowing bats are living in my attic. Any thoughts on this to comfort me until end of August? We just don't know what to do about these bats in the attic & walls. We can see them flying out of a hole on the house. My husband thinks he can smell them inside the house. We could hear something up there last week - thought it was mice...called our pest control company and they climbed up there and left mouse traps. We read your website that said you cannot do exclusion during the summer months - so what do we do right now???
