Bat Inspection in NJ

Bats. They’re one of the most popular pests in popular culture. But while they might famously be a symbol of fear, in a lot of ways, it’s beneficial to have bats in your neighborhood. Believe it or not, bats  actually eat other, smaller pests that are actually more dangerous and destructive than they are. However, they’re still wild animals and it’s not good for you or for them to have them living in your house.

You shouldn’t have to tolerate bats in your home, but thanks to the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife, your pest elimination company can’t get rid of them between the months of May and August and can’t remove brown bats between October 16th and March 31st because bats are protected species. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t call your pest experts to perform a bat inspection in NJ.


One of the telltale signs that bats are in your house is guano (bat droppings), which look a lot like mouse droppings and collect in piles beneath their roosts. But otherwise it’s difficult to tell for sure if there are simply bats in your neighborhood or bats actually roosting in your home. In such a circumstance, you should call a pest control professional to inspect your home for bats.

It’s important to know that it illegal to remove bats yourself or to poison them. Fly traps and glue traps are a similarly bad idea. Alco Animal and Pest Control has extensive experience performing legal and safe bat inspection in NJ.


If you are concerned that you have bats in your home and you need a professional to find them and, during the right time of year, remove them, call Alco Animal and Pest Control for a bat inspection in NJ at (973)540-9944.
