Bat Control from your home is a very common request for all Bat Control Professionals. In the spring, the Bats migrate back to their homes to, start pairing and mating. The female Bat has an instinct to "nest" and looks for a suitable location to have her young. Your home's vents are a very secure place for her. This can be noisy for you as you hear them constantly moving, scratching and vocalizations coming from your vent. You need to get them out very quickly.
There are many different species of Bats in the USA, which are considered to create a nuisance. One of the major requests we receive all year round is for Bats nesting in vent pipes. This can be a big problem and should be addressed immediately. Bats are one of the dirtiest creatures we deal with as they are often carrying the possibilities of diseases, lice, mites and other health hazards. Bats are not desirable to have inhabit your home.

Some interesting Biology about Bats:
Bat Control is involved with arguably the most beneficial mammals in the world, bats come in many varieties. The two most common bats are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat. The Little Brown Bat is the most common we find colonized in homes around the area. Bats are colonized animals which means they live in large numbers. We have found bat colonies where numbers range from 25 to 800, and have reports of bat colonies with higher numbers.
Since bats are so environmentally beneficial, state and local law protects the bats from the use of any kind of killing removal tactics. Therefore this animal has to be handled very carefully. Exclusion is the only way to deal with a bat colony problem. If you suspect you have bats, call us right away.
The little brown bat is a small mammal with a body length of 3" to 3 1/2" and weighs approximately 1/8 to 1/2 an ounce. The wingspan of little brown bats range from 6 to 8" and they can live 20 to 30 years. Bats are the only mammals that engage in active flight. As their name suggests, they are glossy brown above with a light buff color below.
The Little Brown Bat is found from Labrador west to central Alaska and south to the Appalachians in Virginia and Arkansas, located in most states except Florida, Texas and southern California and Found abundantly throughout New Hampshire. The brown bat is most commonly found in residential attic areas.
Little brown bats are insectivorous, eating a variety of insects including some agricultural pests. They can eat 50% of their own body weight each evening. During gestation and lactation, they will eat even more. These nocturnal mammals use echolocation to navigate and locate prey.
Sexual maturity is reached in 6 to 9 months for females and 1 year for males. Breeding period is from September to October but the female stores the sperm for fertilization in the spring. The young are born from mid-June to early July. The little brown bats generally have one offspring per year and occasionally two. The young become self-supporting within one month.
Little brown bats feed primarily over wetlands and other still water where insects are abundant. They use our rivers, streams, and trails as travel corridors to navigate across the landscape. Bats will occasionally swoop down close to mammals to indulge on the insects that swarm around them.
Our little brown bats seek cavities for shelter, roosting and brooding. In summer, females brood their young in dark, warm sites such as attics, caves, barns, hollow tree cavities and other protected areas. Little brown bat roost sites are highly variable and not well known.

Our trained Bat Control technicians remove Bats and their nests and prevent stress or injury to them. This is also a practical and economical approach. Inhumane killing and the use of pesticides for Bat control is illegal in most areas of the country. Removing breeding Bats may leave the babies to die in your building, attracting bugs and parasites, causing further health risks. The removal of Bat carcasses is a time consuming, costly and unnecessary process.
