Bats can cause serious wildlife conflicts in homes and businesses and there are good reasons for not tolerating the presence of bats. The scratching and squeaking noises they create can be a nuisance, their droppings (guano) and urine will stain walls and ceilings causing objectionable, persistent odor that may attract insects and other bat colonies, even after the original colony is eliminated. Long-term accumulation of these droppings has been associated with the respiratory disease Histoplasmosis. Bat guano can be hazardous to human health and should be removed by a professional.
We often see bats in neighborhoods in the evenings as they hunt and eat insects. Bats can be very helpful to our environment! The conflict with bats occurs when they choose homes and businesses as roosting sites. Bats can gain entry to homes and attics through very small openings and will also roost in gable vents and soffits of homes.
We provide South Carolina with a complete bat removal service! We evict the bats, seal your home to prevent bat entry and clean up the mess they leave behind. If you discover bats in your attic call a bat removal and bat control professional at 803.233.3355 as soon as possible. We are the South Carolina specialists at bat removal, bat exclusion, and attic remediation.

Bats are among South Carolina's most interesting and unique mammals. Bats are, for the most part, harmless. They rarely, if ever attack people. In fact, most bats in South Carolina are biologically useful mammals. They feed primarily upon insects, many of which are pests to agriculture. However, bats can be pests when they take up residence within South Carolina homes and businesses. There are some species of bats that are protected by state law so we treat them all as if they are. It is recommended that before conducting any type of bat control or relocating any bats that have been captured, contact a professional bat removal specialists. People occasionally inquire with ordinary pest control professionals as to whether or not the nuisance bat colony can be "exterminated" by applying some kind of poisonous material. This is not an acceptable control alternative because there are no poisons that can be legally used for bat control. Besides, poisoning bats might only worsen the situation. The bats may die in an inaccessible area within a building, thereby creating an odor problem. Also, bats affected by the poison could disperse over an entire community before dying. This may increase the chance of contact with a child, dog, cat, etc., thereby increasing the potential for a "rabies scare" and/or a possible rabies exposure. Bats in the living space of your house or business should be removed immediately. If you suspect you have a bat in your attic, in your walls, in sheds, in a utility building or bats in your chimney you should call our bat removal specialists immediately. Our bat control technicians have the necessary training and skills to get rid of your nuisance bats and complete the necessary repairs and exclusion techniques stated above to keep bats out of your home.

Random bats enter through open doors, windows, garage doors, etc. This type of entry is impossible to protect against and often occurs during the month of August when young bats start flying but can happen year-round.
Most often composed of male bats and is very common in our SC region. This type of colony is usually a lesser number of bats than a maternal colony. This type of bat situation is solved through exclusion.
This is the female grouping of bats using attics or voids as an area to give birth and raise young. During this time frame bats cannot be evicted; however secondary work can be performed.
