Westchester 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 Westchester.

    I have communicated with our bat expert in Westchester 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 Westchester 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 914-873-0497, 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 Westchester 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!

    The Little Brown Bat - The little brown bat is also sometimes referred to as the little brown myotis. It is one of the commonest bats in North America and it belongs to the genus Myotis. It should be noted that the little brown bat is a model organism for studying bats.

    Description - As can be inferred from its name, the little brown bat has back fur that is uniformly brown. On the other hand, the bat's under parts are slightly pale and greyish. Their wing membranes are dark brown, while their ears are black and have short but rounded tragus. The adults are usually between six and ten centimeters long, and they weigh between five grams and fourteen grams. It ought to be noted that, unlike other animals, the female little brown bat is larger than the male. The bat's fore and hind limbs contain five metapodials. Also, essential to note is that the bat's skull does not have a sagittal crest. When its brain case is observed dorsally, it will be seen as flattened and sub-circular. The little brown bat has been established to have a total of thirty eight teeth, all of which are sharp. Therefore, it should be noted that all the teeth of the bat, including the molars, are extremely sharp. Their teeth are sharp, because the bats need to grasp hard bodied insects as they are flying. The sharpness, therefore, makes the grabbing a lot easier. The bat can be distinguished from other bat species because it lacks a keel on the caclar and it has little ventral wing hair.
