The costs on this page represent a combination of 1) sample of costs provided to us by bat exterminators around the country and 2) research done by our staff. To get a more precise estimate, we recommend that you request a quote from local bat removal services near you.
Bat removal cost is roughly $300 to $5,000 depending on how many bats need to be removed from your home. This cost depends on whether a specialist is removing a singular bat, a small colony, or a more sizeable one. For the purposes of this discussion we have defined a small colony as 5 to 50 bats, a medium colony as 50 to 100 bats, and a large colony as more than 100 bats.
Bat in attic removal cost based on the colony size:
Bat removal cost for a singular bat: $300 to $500.
Bat removal cost for a small colony (5 to 50 bats): $500 to $2,000.
Bat removal cost for a medium colony (50 to 100 bats): $1,500 to $3,000.
Bat removal cost for a large colony (over 100 bats): $2,000 to $5,000).
These estimates are rounded. These costs include time and material for sealing up entry areas and for cleaning up minor amounts of guano. If there is significant quano or if the structure is significantly damaged, you can expect costs to be higher than those stated above. It is possible that cleanup and repairs could cost thousands more dollars in more extreme situations.
Bat Inspection Cost
Bat inspection cost is roughly $100 to $200 per visit. This inspection fee may be waived if the bat exterminator that conducts the inspection also completes the work.
There are many things to consider when considering your bat removal project. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
Methods Used to Prepare Bat Removal Cost Estimates
Since bat removal projects depend on the number of bats being removed, an inspection will likely be performed before an estimate can be quoted. The specialist will inspect areas of your home where bats might be found, including the attic and exterior roof area. This will often be done in the evening so the specialist can count the bats as they leave the roosting area for the night. Costs will also be determined by the number of entry points into the roosting area. If you are interested in finding out how much it will cost to remove bats in your area, Request a Price Quote.
Reasons for Bat Exterminator Cost Variances
Bat exterminators use a combination of methods to evaluate and price projects. They take several factors into consideration that impact the cost of the project, including:
Size of bat colonies. Colony size is the primary cost consideration. Smaller colonies may have a lower cost than larger colonies due to the time and effort needed to remove a sizeable colony of bats.
Number of entry points into the roosting area. After the initial inspection and removal, the entry points will need to be sealed to prevent bats from re-entering your home. More entry points will be more costly than fewer entry points.
Location of roosting area. If the roosting area is in a location that is difficult for specialists to reach, the cost of removal may increase.
Post-removal cleanup. If guano, or bat excrement (which is toxic to humans), is found, there may be an additional cost required to clean the areas affected.
Post-removal repairs. If the bats have damaged your attic or other roosting location, additional costs may be required to repair impacted areas.
