What Makes Up The Cost Of Bat Removal?

Several factors influence the cost of bat removal/exclusion. Bat removal is a highly specialized service that comes with its own set of licensing and liability costs. Factors to consider include:

  • Amount Of Bats.
  • Number Of Entry Points (damage points)
  • How Much Cleaning Does The Infestation Require
  • The location of the infestation and how accessible it is
  • Extent Of Damage

Wildlife experts may also encounter other pests such as raccoons, rats, and termites where bats are found. It’s also possible that you’ll get a flea infestation. However, not all nuisance animal control companies deal with bats, and bat removal professionals don’t always deal with other pests. Consider contacting Animals Happen to get a consultation from a wildlife control company near you today if you suspect raccoons, termites, or another pest created the entry holes for your flying colony.

What Is The Price Range Of Bat Control?

Several variables determine the cost of hiring a professional to remove bats. The cost of removing a small colony of bats ranges from $400 to $600, with an average price of $500, which includes the initial inspection but excludes cleanup. Inspection and guano cleanup costs can add up to $8,500 for larger colonies. However, if you only have one bat instead of a colony, it will be less expensive, costing around $275 to remove a single bat.

Cost Of Guano Removal?

Depending on the size of the house and the extent/duration of the infestation, removing guano cleanup can cost anywhere from $600 to $8,500.

A few things to keep in mind when cleaning up guano:

  • Not every circumstance necessitates removal. Consult your wildlife expert to determine whether the location and quantity are worth removing.
  • Please wait until the bats have left before cleaning it up. It could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to ensure that the exclusion repairs are successful.
  • Histoplasmosis can be spread by bat guano. It’s an infection caused by inhaling spores of a fungus found in bat and bird droppings. The spores are usually only released into the air during the cleanup or renovation process. It’s critical to hire a professional to clean up bat guano.
