If you are worried that your home has bats or aren't quite sure, we can provide a building inspection first. This can be likened to preventative maintenance. If we find bats after the building inspection, we do recommend having us perform the bat removal process.

If a person lives relatively close (within an hour or so) there isn’t a charge for this at all. Even if you are further away, if you would chose to hire us, we would not charge for the inspection.
Process of Removal
The bat removal process involves AllState Bat Control checking the home from roof top to foundation for access for the bats. After all, bats get in from the outside of your house. So all work is done from the outside. Sealing up areas, and putting the excluders on which allow the bats to leave and not reenter the home. Some people will want an attic inspection while we are doing the bat proofing process, and that is total understandable. Then someone would have to be there to allow entrance into home. This allows us and homeowners to have a gauge to see how much activity there has been inside the structure.
Restoration is the Process of cleaning your infected area, generally the attic. Removing debris and infected materials, disinfecting and sealing all the surfaces of areas that are infected. This process is not always called for or needed. But would be for a HEAVILY infested area with strong odor and damage to the building materials.
It can involve as much as taking out ALL the insulation from the attic, if heavily infected. Or it can be removing just the surface area (top 3-6 inches as an example) if guano hasn’t built up and soiled all the insulation. An inspection can answer all those questions and the extent of work needed. If worried about this, call us and we will provide more information with regard to the process and related cost.
Price can vary greatly with the work involved. Many factors go into the cost per sq ft. Size of job, difficulty of access, amount of insulation/guano needed to be removed. Jobs we have done have ranged from $2-6 dollars a square ft. Price includes removal, disinfecting, and sealing. It’s why an inspection is so important. Many variables go into a job of this magnitude.
