Bat Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Bat problems safely and efficiently
The only mammals that can fly, bats regularly strike fear in the minds of property owners despite the fact that their presence can be beneficial. They regularly eat a number of pest insects, including mosquitoes, beetles, and moths. However, they are also capable of spreading disease. In general, bats are most problematic when they roost in attics, chimneys, porches, or under roof tiles or siding.

Instead of arms, bats have wings that stretch from their hands to their bodies. They also have thumbs used for climbing, fighting, and grasping food. Bats do not use their eyes to locate meals, and instead rely on echolocation to see in the dark. Sound bounces off objects and returns to the typically large ears of bats. Some species of bats have small, simple noses, while others resemble pig snouts.
Their diet mostly consists of insects. One of the most common bats in the United States, the little brown bat, is an opportunistic feeder that catches prey right out of the air. Other bats feed on fruit, nectar, and even some small reptiles and amphibians.
Where bats roost depends on the species. Some avoid heavily forested areas, preferring spaces near human habitation. They can be found in barns, attics, silos, churches, tree hollows, and on rock ledges. Species that do enjoy tree cover roost in the canopies of forests or under tree bark. We most commonly remove bats from properties in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, and South Carolina.
