When Can NY and NJ Animal Control Evict Bats

Bats occupy an interesting place in the world of pest control. They are beneficial animals that manage populations of insects like mosquitoes, moths, crickets, and beetles. But bats do have some risk for humans, and bat guano (droppings) is destructive for properties. These risks are what make it important to remove bats. Yet because of the benefits and other threats to the health of New York bat populations, the state government, federal governments, and humane wildlife control principles impose restrictions on when bats can be removed from local homes and business properties.

As a licensed bat exclusion specialist in New York, NY and NJ Animal Control follows all guidelines for bat removal to guarantee that we are providing a humane service that is safe for both bats and your family. Here we will explain when we can schedule exclusion and go into the reasons why we, and other bat control companies in NY and NJ, must adhere to a bat exclusion schedule for our local services.

When Can We Exclude Bats in New York
Exclusion is a safe and effective alternative to extermination. Instead of killing bats or harming them in any way, we set up devices that allow bats to safely leave on their own, but make it impossible for them to come back in the next morning.

But this means that exclusion is only effective when bats are leaving their property. It also means that, since they cannot come back, it needs to be safe for them to leave permanently and find a new place to live. If neither of those things are true, excluding bats can harm them. For customers in New Jersey, the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife has issued specific dates between which bat exclusions can legally occur. In the state of New York, there are no mandated times, but we must ensure that bats are not breeding or hibernating. We therefore use a similar schedule for New York customers. This schedule prohibits exclusions between:

  • May 1 to July 31 – No exclusion is possible as this is when baby bats are present.
  • October 16 to March 31 – No exclusion is possible since bats are in hibernation.
    This leaves acceptable bat exclusion times between:
  • April 1 to April 30
  • August 1 to mid-October

If you find bats roosting in your home outside of these months, we must schedule the exclusion between one of these time periods. All licensed bat exclusion providers in New York and New Jersey will follow these same timelines in order to protect your home and family from the health risks and damage bats can cause while also ensuring the bats are kept safe and no laws are violated.

Scheduling Bat Exclusion Around Hibernation
New York is home to six species of cave bats who stay in the area to hibernate during the winter. Of the six, the big brown bat often uses man made structures for its winter hibernation. The bats enter torpor – a state of lowered temperature and heart rate – when temperatures cool in mid-October and come out of it around April. During this time, they use their fat reserves to sustain themselves.  Exclusion in winter months is ineffective since the bats are not leaving their roosts nightly to hunt. Additionally, disturbing hibernating bats is extremely harmful as each time a bat comes out of torpor uses up vital energy reserves. Too many disturbances can result in death before bats can resume hunting insects in the spring.

Understanding Types of Bats in Your Home
Of New York’s nine bat species, there are 6 that are most often an issue for homeowners. These are called cave bats as they prefer to roost in groups in sheltered spaces like caves and mines out in nature. But when they dwell in urban areas, attics, sheds, walls, chimneys, bridges, and other crevices in man-
made structures provide their shelter. The most common cave bat invaders in homes are:

  • Big Brown Bat
  • Little Brown Bat
  • Northern Long Eared Bats

The other 3 cave bats can also make their homes in houses. These are the Indiana bat, eastern small- footed bat, and tricolor bat. Depending on the species, bat colonies can contain anywhere from a few bats to thousands, which can result in a messy and hazardous situation wherever the bats are living.

The big brown bat is the only one that will hibernate in homes through the winter. The others will leave their roost for a more natural location. The Indiana bat, northern long eared bat, and eastern small- footed bat are protected under NY state and federal law as endangered or threatened species at risk of becoming endangered. Attempting to remove these three species outside of the permitted exclusion schedule, or harming them at any time of the year, can result in costly penalties.

Working with a team that is knowledgeable about local bat species is extremely important for exclusion because of the risks with individual species. NY and NJ Animal Control can identify the species present in your home and guide the exclusion timeline in a way that is safe and legal.

Rules and Regulations for Endangered Bats in NYC
As a humane wildlife control company, we structure our bat control in a way that avoids harm to wildlife of any species. But there are certain species of bats that are specifically covered under the federal Endangered Species Act and the New York Environmental Conservation Law and no bat exclusion company or individual is permitted to harm or kill these bats. Harassing – such as disturbing their rest during hibernation or mating – is also a violation.

These rules cover not only bats found in the wild, but those living inside residential and commercial properties in New York. Violations of an endangered species regulation can result in penalties in the tens of thousands or dollars or prison time.

It is true that not all of the bats that roost in New York homes are protected as endangered species. Yet because of the potential for endangered species to be present and statewide efforts in conserving all bats as a helpful pest control species, we must apply the rules for eco-friendly bat exclusion to every bat infestation.

How the Bat Life Cycle Impact Exclusion Timing
Female bats give birth to baby bats in June and July. For the first weeks after the pups are born, a time called the maternity season, the young bats stay in their roost each night while the mother bats go out to hunt for food. The young bats master flying around August, at which point they will begin leaving to
find their own food.

Exclusion is not possible during the maternity season since pups are not leaving their roost and are depending on adult bats to return to feed them. If we were to use bat exclusion in the summer, it would result in the death of a generation of bats. We schedule bat exclusion around the maternity season because it:

  • Keeps our practices humane.
  • Avoids violating any laws by killing a protected bat species.
  • Is good for the environment.

Dead bats inside your walls or attic are a cleanliness issue as well. The decaying material will release odors that can spread throughout a home and may attract pests or lead to bacterial growth. To prevent the need to remove dead bats, we want to exclude them at a time of the year where no bats will become trapped. This is also why NY and NJ Animal Control takes extreme care to be sure that all bats have left before we permanently seal up entry points.

Exclusion When Bats Are Not Present
Many property owners plan for bat exclusion after they notice bats already living in their home or elsewhere on the property. But exclusion is also an effective preventative measure against bats and we can secure openings before bats ever get in.

As long as we can insure that no bats are currently living in your property, we have a more flexible timeline for preventative exclusion. This can be done in the winter if big brown bats are not hibernating in your attic, and throughout much of the rest of the year.
