Hackensack Bat Removal

Not all wildlife removal companies are the same. Some have experience with bat removal projects, and are familiar with the proper methods for bat exclusion. But others use incorrect techniques, such as bat traps, summer exclusions, or worse, fumigants. Do your research before you hire someone! I personally recommend our field technician for bat control in Hackensack.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Hackensack for many years, and he abides by these bat removal principles:

  • Always perform a proper live exclusion.
  • Never use poisons or fumigants or kill bats.
  • Never use traps or attempt to relocate bats.
  • Never do a removal during the maternity season.
  • Seal all entry points shut with guarantee.
  • Offer attic cleanup and decontamination.
  • Properly New Jersey licensed and insured.
As I discuss repeatedly on this website, bat removal projects are not easy, and not for amateurs. I have seen many horrible attempts at bat colony removal throughout the years, done both by do-it-yourself homeowners and by incompetent companies. Never hire a Hackensack pest control company that uses poisons for rodent or insect control. They often attempt the same approach for bats. Not only is this incredibly destructive and illegal in New Jersey, but it results in disaster for the homeowner, and does not actually solve the problem. It's very important that the removal of bats from the attic of your home is done in the correct manner, and there is only one correct way, with a live bat exclusion. To read more about this process, read my bats in the attic home page.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 201-328-0537, talk to them, and make sure that they understand what they are doing, and that they have experience. Be sure that they do abide by the principles I outlined above. This is not just for the sake of the bats - I'm no tree hugger - it's for the sake of doing the job correctly, for you and your property. The fact that it's good for the bats as well is a lucky coincidence. And really, bats are good animals, which I'm sure you realize. I hope you have a good experience with your Hackensack bat control project. You can email me personally if you have any problems with our tech, and I will talk to him, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

Hi David - Great website! I have a rather large colony in my house in central Hackensack NJ of at least 200-300 little brown bats. They are awesome little creatures and I want to keep them, but they are out of control and crawling down into the walls, making a lot of noise, etc. I have put up bat houses and sealed all small openings, and planned to do the exclusion when they left this winter. However, they are also comfortable enough that they don't appear to be migrating in the winter anymore, so I am not sure what to do. Where are you located? Would it be possible for you to give me a call to discuss the particulars of my colony? I am tired of reading the same general info over and over online, and have not found anyone who seems more knowledgeable than you.

David, Hello! I like your website. Very informative. My wife and I recently moved into our house, and within only a few months, we've now had three bats appear. We're interested in having a professional here in Bergen County NJ come and check the place out to help us make sure this doesn't happen again. Is that something you can help us with? Or can you direct me to someone who can? Thanks in advance.

Hi David - We have bats in our attic, we have caught (2) in the past week (I let them go outside) and I seen one flying around up there today around 5:00 PM, but could not capture it, then I lost him up there. Advice please? Your fee? The one eve on the back of the house you can see daylight ,so I am guessing that is how they are getting in. We never had a problem before after living here 25 years.Thanks and waiting for your reply.
