Jersey City 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 Jersey City.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Jersey City 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 Jersey City 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 973-272-4133, 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 Jersey City 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!

So i live in an apartment complex, and these bats are in my roof. quite a spectacle to watch the fly around at dusk and dawn, but there's scores of them. I've alerted my complex management about the issue and said that the guano can be toxic, and they just apologized for the inconvenience, and said there's nothing they can do. what should i do? Also, I was reading your page, i got concerned. i have bats roosting in my chimney, i got up on the roof and looked down in it, i got a real bad smell, does that mean I am in danger of the disease u mentioned, that the airborne spores infected me?

David, Thanks for great article on bat removal! I have a friend who pastors a church in another town in Southeast New Jersey. The building is over 100 years old and there are hundreds if not thousands of bats in the attic. It appears that the guano is maybe two feet deep and they have now had a few bats come down into the sanctuary. Is there hope for this old church building to be bat free and safe , including removal and clean up of feces? And if so, how expensive would this endeavor likely be? It is a small, older congregation and money as well as manpower to do it themselves is in short supply. Any suggestions would be welcome and appreciated! Thanks so much for taking time to respond.
