How Much Does Bat Removal Cost?

Pricing and costs of bat removal and control in 2020

Bat colony removal from buildings is highly specialized work, and usually more expensive than other wildlife control work. However, it is a necessary cost. I have done some simple bat exclusions - from simple houses, small bat colony, not much cleaning needed - for as low as $350 total. However, I have done some very large bat exclusions from big buildings involving thousands of bats and very laborious seal-up work and cleanup work, and those jobs run in the several thousand dollar range.

Here are three articles that will help give you more information:
How To Guide: Who should I hire? - What questions to ask, what to look for, who NOT to hire.
How To Guide: do it yourself! - Advice on saving money by doing wildlife removal yourself.
Guide: Why does wildlife cost what it does? - Analysis of the wildlife control business, and prices.

Costs do vary by company. But there are 3 main principles:
1) Bat control is highly specialized work, with unique licensing and liability risks.
2) You usually do get what you pay for, and cheap companies tend to do bad work.
3) There is no one-price-fits-all. It doesn't work that way, every bat job is different.

Any reputable nuisance wildlife company will have spent money on licensing, liability insurance, and a host of other business expenses. You don't want to over-pay of course. And most of all, you want someone who will do this complex work correctly. If you do it wrong the first time, you'll just end up paying more later. You can't ignore wildlife problems, because of the damage and health risks that bats cause. Invest in your home and property by taking care of the bat problem correctly.

Customer Email Regarding Bat Problem: Hi David, I have greatly appreciated the information on your site and have found it very helpful. I want to know How to get free bat removal. One question I did have was about a situation I am currently encountering. At 4:30 this morning I was awakened by my home security provider that my alarm had been set off. As I cautiously made my way downstairs I discovered a bat flying in the living room which had obviously triggered the alarm. I opened doors to see if it would just leave and then I suddenly didn't see it anymore (I suspect it flew into my basement as I never saw it fly out). My question is this: is there any health hazards when a bat has merely been flying around in a room? I've heard all kinds of rumors such about health issues just by the presence of a lone bat. So I just want to make sure I proceed properly. I have seen no evidence of bat droppings in my home and while I know we have had bats in our walls in the winter time, in the 6 years I've lived in my house this is only the 2nd sighting of a bat in the living areas.  I'm also curious about what the price might be to remove a colony of bats. Thank you for whatever answers or advice you may have. Thanks again for your great blog. Louis

My Response: There is no health hazard as a result of a bat merely flying around a room. But if you have a bat in the house, there's almost certainly a colony in the attic or walls. I've never seen it otherwise. You should have your attic space inspected for a bat colony. As for the cost, that can vary a great deal depending on the complexity of the bat removal job.
