Nassau County 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 Nassau County.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Nassau County 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 York 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 Nassau County 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 York, 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 516-874-5040, 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 Nassau County 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, I plan to call a couple local companies later today when the sun rises and the rest of the world wakes up....but I wanted to ask what can be done this time of year for bat 'control' to prevent them from entering my home. I've lived in this house for 14 years and during that time have encountered 10+ bats inside the living space of my home. If u could guarantee they'd stay in the attic, I'd probably just learn to tolerate the scratching in the walls and above my head, but since I can't, we need help. In the past I've either hired people to remove the lone lost bat in the house, or I've caught it myself, or my cat has done it for me. Now I am older and have a two year old child and so I am more concerned about not only my daughter being terrified if one gets in (her bedroom closet has a door that is the access to the eaves of our cape cod style home, though in the past the bats seem to gain access by crawling down the walls and getting into the basement) but also of the health risks of accumulating guano in the attic. I've never looked in there to check it out because I am freaked out....I can deal with one, but not several if that should be the case. I hired a company to do an exclusion a few years ago, but the guy didn't even look in my attic, just around the house, then supposedly plugged up potential access holes. Needless to say, it didn't work, and he was probably a crook (I was in college, didn't know any better). So.....my question is, I keep reading that exclusion can't be done during summer months because of the bat babies. I get that, and I even think bats are kind of cute and wouldn't want to harm any (once we caught one in the house under the bed after my husband had been sleeping in there, the doctor recommended we have it tested for rabies rather than unnecessarily get the vaccination, and I cried for days after we delivered it to its death. And yes, I'm a vegetarian). Anyway...until we reach fall and can attempt an exclusion and cleanup, what can I do to keep them out of my living room? Thank you!! Laura
