Our Services

Bat Proofing

We offer nice and friendly bat removal through a process called exclusion. Exclusion is where the bats are able to come out of your home and not get back in without hurting or harming them.

Guano Clean-Up

Dealing with a bat infestation may be one of the most difficult problems when owning a home but how and when a person should deal with the bat guano, can also be a difficult decision.


With a properly insulated and ventilated home, you’ll be able to manage and mitigate excess heat and humidity more effectively and help extend the life of your home.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“We had bats for years and didn’t know what to do. Finally, we had one tested and found out that it was rabid. That did it!! We called Nice Bats and they came right out, took care of the problem, and guaranteed their work. When we saw another bat and called them back, they came right out!! Fixed that problem too! They were courteous, prompt, professional, and really knew their stuff. I’d recommend their services to anyone. Thanks again, guys! I’ve got enough other stuff that drives me batty, I don’t need the real thing!!”

– Katie and Tony, Sioux Falls, SD

“I cannot say enough good things about Nice Bats. From the very first call to the day when the cones were taken down (yeah! No more bats!!). I had a very positive experience with the staff. Nobody wants bats in their house, and trust me — I had a lot of them. Nice Bats come promptly and were professional from beginning to end. I’m sure I won’t have to call them again, but if I do, I know my issue will be taken care of.”

– Tracey, Lennox, SD

“My wife and I had a real problem with bats for years. We have an old house and could hear them in the attic. Numerous attempts were made to remedy the problem, but none worked and the critters could not be found. Finally, we had Nice Bats come out to take a look. After just a few moments on the roof, Jim told me there were some spots he thought the bats were coming in. Often these nasty little mammals would keep my wife and I up at night. Now that Jim Woods has bat proofed my house, my wife and I sleep easy and have not heard a bat since.”
