Paterson 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 Paterson.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Paterson 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 Paterson 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 862-377-6541, 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 Paterson 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!

Our exterminator was just here doing a routine check of our house and found 2 baby bats hanging outside in our roof eves. He said they cannot be removed until fall and he thinks they are outside because of the is 4 in the afternoon . What do we do in the meantime to keep more from moving in. We also have grandchilgren who visit and a dog and cat . Please advise.

Greetings David - I have a Bat problem. I have a contract to purchase a condo in Paterson NJ. When my inspector went to open up the outside part of the central air, he found "a lot of bats" resting in it. He closed it up and didn't disturb them. I want this situation handled properly & humanely. And I appreciate your referral to the company in Tampa. My urgent question is, could mold spores from the urine & guano have been blown into the condo? I have severe allergies (it's why I'm moving from Louisville) & can't move into this condo unless I get that answer. Thanks in advance for any help you might give.

I'm in Northern New Jersey. Found a loose fitting soffit on the south side of our house, next to our chimney, about 2 years ago. I neglected to repair it... too many other things to address -- Nor'easter damage, Superstorm Sandy damage, my mother's failing health, etc., etc. This morning my wife lifted a shade by the bedroom window, closest to a shelf/ledge part of the chimney structure. Bat guano pile, about 9 inches in diameter, 1/2 - 3/4 inch high at deepest point. No home invasion, not malodorous signs, no obvious visible wallboard/ceiling damage yet. I suspect, due to the opening size and our geo-location, the culprit to be the Little Brown Bat (and as best as I can tell, this is their only point-of-entry). An aside -- I consider myself a conservationist, as well -- Member of Nature Conservancy, Audubon, etc., long-time wildlife enthusiast, big-time birder and birding photographer, butterflies, bees -- all living creatures are of great interest to me. Having read your site with great interest, I have a couple of questions...As you advocate, live exclusion is the preferred method of remediation. Given the time of year (10/08/2013)... Are they not preparing for torpor/hibernation for the winter? Will their reduced activity level reduce the effectiveness of an exclusion attempt at this point? I obviously cannot have them overwintering in the house?! Please advise as to my course of action at this time. Also, you mention the use for clean-up (after exclusion) of an enzyme-based cleaner... Can you please expound upon that?... Either a brand name?... Or at least -- the specific chemical make-up/composition that will get the job done? Again, your website has provided me with invaluable information... Thank you. I have spent all day researching this and I want to do the right thing, the right way... And hire the right people to get the job done -- and done right (right :-) ). Any further insight you can provide (other than the questions posed above), I would greatly appreciate.
