Bat removal in Charleston is one of the most complex pest control processes in the pest control industry. While bats play an integral role in the ecosystem, sometimes they can get into places where they don’t belong. Many times that means bats in an attic, garage, or business. Unfortunately, bats carry some pretty serious health risks if they live to close to humans. Those risks include rabies and histoplasmosis. This makes humane bat removal and bat control in Charleston an integral service to the community that many normal pest control companies can’t provide.
Here at Metro Wildlife and Pest, we’re proud to offer quick and humane bat removal in Charleston (we are not bat exterminators in Charleston-although people sometimes call us that), and we can take care of your bat problem with ease. Bats often like to roost in attic spaces of homes and other buildings, and they can squeeze through holes the size of a dime! Since bats use your home as shelter too, once they have gotten in, they likely won’t leave on their own. You’ll need to call a professional wildlife removal company.
We serve all areas in Charleston, SC including: Summerville, Mt Pleasant, Isle of Palms, Goose Creek, Daniel Island, Sullivans Island and Kiawah
Being nocturnal, bats are mostly active at night. Because of this, many people don’t know that they have bats in the attic and are in need of bat removal until some time has passed.
However, if you hear scratching in the attic or chimney at night, smell a strong ammonia smell, or notice heavy staining along the roof line, this could mean you have bats and need bat control services.
Booking a free inspection online is the best way to know for sure. We’ll photo document everything so that you can be sure your home or business is critter free. You can also fill out a contact form if you have additional questions. We’d love the chance to show you why we are the top bat pest control company in Charleston

Having bats in your home is an unpleasant experience, to say the least. Many homeowners don’t know how to get rid of them, so they continue living with the flying mammals—as well as having to put up with their smell and the fact that they may be dropping guano all over the place! In order to make sure you never have to deal with this problem again, here are some helpful tips on how to keep bats out of your home once and for all.
Why Do Bats Enter Homes?
In Mt Pleasant as well as other places in Charleston, bats can enter homes for a variety of reasons. There may be an opening into your attic and they are looking for another place to roost. Sometimes people put up bat houses without realizing that there is an existing colony living in their home. A homeowner will think they have created an ideal bat environment, but they really just invited them inside!
The first step in how to keep bats out of your home is figuring out where they’re roosting. Once you find their home, you can start preparing a bat exclusion. You may want to hire a professional, but DIY methods are available as well. Please be careful if you go the DIY route! It can be dangerous. Exposure to the animals, the droppings and the height that you’ll need to work at can all be tricky.
If a bat is flying around your home, you may be tempted to swat it with a newspaper or try and capture it. While these methods may work, it’s far more effective (and humane) to have an experienced professional from Metro Wildlife and Pest Control do the job. We can assess your home for entry points and install barriers that will keep bats out and allow them to exit on their own.
Bat exclusion begins with sealing all openings in and around your home, especially around roofs and attics. Entry points are likely any time you see a crack, a hole or damaged shingles. Goose Creek and other Charleston residents can install exclusion devices at these locations. After sealing, there are usually two primary times during which bats will enter homes: when they are migrating in fall or early spring and when their colony swells due to birthing cycles in mid-spring.
