Myrtle Beach 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 Myrtle Beach.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Myrtle Beach 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 South 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 Myrtle Beach 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 South 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 803-832-2495, 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 Myrtle Beach 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!

We moved into an old farmhouse last year and found out we had bats inside. we thought they may have come in when the furnace was being replaced and basement window had been taken out and left open for several days... Over the summer we kept catching and releasing outside in hopes that they would fly into the nearby barn... We found that they are using a chimney on the house as their home... After catching over 20 in the house, we had no further problems and thought problem solved, but last night they were once more in the space between second floor and lowered ceiling, I don't want them hurt but I do want them out!! I am on a fixed income so can't afford to hire someone, so asking you for some steps to take in order to get them outside where they belong lol.. would appreciate any advice.

I find droppings on the outside of my concrete entryway in the corners near the entry door that are elongated and black. They certainly are not the size of rice. Your article does not meet this description regarding bats. I would guess they are roosting on the ceiling corners near the door at night as I have not seen any bats anywhere. We have no attic and do have a second story house.
