Why is there an inspection fee for bat removal?
We have an inspection fee for a couple reasons. One is because we use it to gauge the seriousness of the person that is calling looking to have the bats removed. $195.00 of the fee is taken off the top of the quote should you use our service. The second reason is that we are very busy doing bat removal, bird control, and mole trapping. Adding appointments does take a little away from being able to get to these services for our existing clients and it covers our time as the average bat inspection takes 30 min to 2 hours to do effectively.
What is the average cost for bat removal?
This is a very hard question for us to answer, my best response is it is like giving a haircut over the phone...just doesn't work. Each building is different whether commercial, residential, or industrial. Gaps 1/2" or larger must be inspected and sealed to prevent re-entry of bats and entries that are existing need one way bat valves installed and then a return trip must happen to take off those bat valves a few weeks later and those places sealed. During the inspection all these will be taken into account as well as access to those areas like ladder or aerial lift needed and the steepness of the roof all play a factor in the total cost. Our minimum base cost is $650.00 plus tax. The range goes from $650 and up depending on the factors above. Typical ranges for residential homes goes from $650.00 plus tax up to $4,000.00-$5,000.00 plus tax depending on size and amount of work required. It is best to have the inspection done to determine the scope of your bat problem so that an accurate estimate can be given.

An inspection is needed to determine the extent of your bat problem as every structure is different. We are checking for entries, potential entry areas once they can't access where they do now, and how the structure is vented to make sure they cannot access these areas as well....After the inspection we will give a quote based on what we find to seal up any gaps 1/2" or larger, screen off any vents, install one way bat valves, etc. and should you go with our quote, we will deduct $195.00 of the inspection fee off the top of the quote. A standard 1 year warranty comes with most bat exclusions...additional year(s) warranties are available at an additional cost per year with a yearly inspection to ensure success.
