Are There Bats Roosting Behind My Shutters?

Bats roosting behind your window or attic shutters are common in Chapin. Especially bats nest behind shutters on stone-faced houses. We specialize in all forms of bat removal and bird control, especially birds living in shutters.

First, we must determine what species of the bat is. Our bat control experts in Lexington County will be able to identify all of the common bats in Chapin. We do this to make sure that the species in question is not an endangered or protected species.

Once the bats are behind the shutters on your house they will begin nesting. This can cause multiple problems. They can be very unsightly with bat guano running down your house and windows.  The bats behind the shutters can also cause a health risk. Also, some species of bats become protective of their nest and will swoop down to try to bite and scare you away.

Bat Removal Process

As a bat removal pest control company, we require all of our technicians to be trained and certified for bat removal in Chapin. If we determine that it is not a protected species such as the Gray bat, and South Carolina Indiana Bat. Then we can begin the exclusion process.

First, we will scare away the bats by removing the shutters. Do not worry we can re-install them. Then we will clean up and disinfect the area of the bat guano and shutter.

After the bats are removed and the area sanitized it will be time to keep the bats out. This is done differently depending on the species of bat and area in the country. In South Carolina, our bird control and removal specialist will normally exclude the bats by installing a bat-proof material in front of the shutters to prevent birds from getting in. We may also install visual bat deterrents to deter bats from the area.
