Guano is the name given to bat droppings, which differ from mouse droppings in that they have a glossy, speckled look and tend to cluster together as they pile up. These droppings will proceed to produce fungus and spores over time if left alone, which can cause histoplasmosis in extreme cases. The dust created by these droppings has the potential to irritate people. A bat’s urine, like their droppings, can damage wood by creating an increase in decay if left unattended for a long time. Bats produce excrement 20-30 times a day, which has an unpleasant odor that might attract other bugs. Bat guano removal is very important and must be done by a professional.
Common Bats Species in North Carolina
With a wingspan range of 13-16 inches, the Big Brown Bat (Eptesicusfuscus) is one of the largest of the North Carolina bat species. Their fur is long and greasy, with a light to dark brown coloration.
The Brazilian Free-Tailed Bat (Tadaridabrasiliensis) is distinguished by its free tails that are nearly half the length of its body. Their fur is brown in color, and their wingspan is about 11-14 inches.
Tiny Brown Myotis (Myotislucifugus): Also known as the little brown bat, this species is distinguished by its glossy brown fur that comes in a variety of colors. Their wingspan varies between 8 and 11 inches.
Bats do not eat their way into your home or business; instead, they use gaps and other openings to gain access. They can get into quarter-sized holes with ease. Because bats may fit through even the tiniest of openings, property owners are frequently unaware that these holes exist.
The time when female bats raise their young, known as pups, spans from the beginning of May until the end of July. Young bats, like other animals, rely on their mothers for survival during their first few weeks of life, thus householders should avoid blocking holes or putting eviction devices during this time, according to commission scientists.
Bat Exclusion Laws In North Carolina
“If a homeowner installs a bat exclusion device or covers up the holes that bats have used to get into the house, female bats may not be able to get to their young after a night of feeding, and the young bats will starve to death,” said Jessie Birckhead, a wildlife extension biologist with the Commission. “Any bats trapped within, especially pups that can’t fly, will look for a way out and could end up in the homeowner’s living space.” – Wildlife Resources Commission of North Carolina You should not kill bats, no matter how unpleasant or frightening they are (especially when they are assaulting your home). Bats are actually highly crucial to our environment, despite their negative image, overall lack of physical attractiveness (they are ugly), and the fact that them and their guano may be very detrimental to human health. For these reasons, a responsible property owner should not use fatal force to eliminate their bat problem — it’s also illegal*(click here to learn more about North Carolina’s protected species)!
What Is The Cost Of Bat Control Services
For our bat removal services, we can’t promise to be the cheapest option or even provide a “standardized fee.” Each task necessitates a comprehensive inspection in order for us to deliver an accurate quote to our clients. This is due to the fact that each attic bat infestation is unique, and each job has its own set of obstacles that might affect cost. What we can promise is that before the next step is taken, you will have a clear understanding of what needs to be done, why it needs to be done, and how much it will cost.
To be clear, professional bat colony exclusion can be very costly. However, doing it yourself or using a low-cost or under-equipped pest control firm may end up costing you more in the long run (even if they claim to have experience in bat control).
It’s all we do, so we’re professionals at getting bats out. Plus, we have the LOCAL expertise and experience to ensure that our solution and service will exceed your expectations. However, even if we do not achieve 100% removal and prevention, you may be confident that your investment in us was well worth it.

Even ONE bat sighting may be sufficient to justify a thorough inspection. Why would we say something like that? The truth is that these creatures are naturally secretive and only come out at times of day when they are difficult to observe (this is obviously a strategic advantage both for their own hunting purposes as well as protection from predators). And, while a bat being caught in your home is rare (though it does happen), if you see one or one gets into your home, it’s likely that there are more and/or that they happen been there for a time.
You might not even SEE a bat; instead, you might hear strange noises emanating from your attic or walls. Or maybe you get a whiff of something strange.
Whatever the case may be, there are various indicators that may be assessed over the phone – at no cost – to establish if an inspection is required, so just give us a call if you are unsure.
