Caution: Do Not Open a Door Or Window to Let The Bat Fly Away

Any time you have a bat in the living space of the house, the Department Of Health wants it brought in for rabies testing! This is especially true if you are awoken with a bat flying through your bedroom. Bats have been known to scratch/bite people while sleeping, without them waking.

"In two-thirds of the cases of bat rabies, people could not remember being bitten. Health officials say the majority of human rabies cases in the U.S. have resulted from exposure to rabid bats." - Dr. Mark Rapoport Girl Infected By Bat Contact Dies Of Rabies

Get to Know Your Bats

westchester bat controlIn the northeast we have two main species of bats that will set up shop in our homes. The first is the Little Brown Bat. Little Browns will enter an attic in the early spring and have their pups inside. The new family of Little Brown bats will generally leave in the fall, to head for the caves, but will come back to your house the following spring to continue the cycle.

The Big Brown Bats can handle the cold a little better and will "Winter Over" meaning if they have picked your house to roost in, they will never leave unless forced out. They will hibernate in your attic during the winter months and become active again in the spring. Unfortunately, this species of bats is the most common.

Bats are not Rodents or Birds, They are flying mammals. For this reason bat removal services as well as decontamination services are generally covered by your homeowners insurance. We work with your insurance company to get you covered, and protect your family at no cost to you when possible.

Bat control must be performed without harming the bats! Bats are Protected under federal and state law! It is against the law to remove bats from a house when babies are present and not capable of flight to prevent them from becoming trapped inside.
They can only be Relocated, Not Exterminated!

Never have your house bat-proofed by an exterminator. You need a nuicense wildlife control professional on site during the eviction process to insure its success. Check out our Bat Removal Gallery to see how other companies in the area are "sealing" up homes. We provide environmentally friendly bat removal techniques - Humane Bat Control.
No Chemicals or Poisions are ever used to remove your bats!

 

Bats are Beneficial to the Environmant, Not Your Home!

One reason we like bats is that they consume their body weight in insects every night. This helps in protecting humans from vector born diseases. When you have your house bat-proofed, the bats generally don't go far. You still have the benifits of them being in the area, just not in your home.

The main reason we dont want bats roosting in our attic is that they often end up in the living space of the house. Because bats are noctournal, this always happens in the middle of the night. Not only is it scary to be awoken from a nice sleep with a bat in the bedroom, but it is also a health risk. Bats have a fairly high incidence of rabies. Rabies is always fatal if untreated in humans.

bat bugs on westchester batAnother downside to having bats in the attic is the accumulation of bat droppings("guano") that contain pathogens and serve as a breeding medium for insects and fungi, some of which can cause disease. They also carry parasites like fleas and ticks, many of which are disease vectors. Bat Bugs are commonly associated with bat infestation. Bat bugs are closely related to Bed Bugs. Bat bugs can migrate into the living space of the home to feed on people and pets instead of bats.

Histoplasmosis - Bat Guano
Histoplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by inhaling the spores of a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum, which is commonly present in Bat droppings. When dry bat dropping are disturbed (sweeping them up), the fungus spores can become airborn and breathed in. Histoplasmosis can appear as a mild, flu-like respiratory illness and has a combination of symptoms, including malaise (a general ill feeling), fever, chest pain, dry or nonproductive cough, headache, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, joint and muscle pains, chills, and hoarseness. *Do not disturb any suspected bat droppings


Our Process: Bat Removal is a Job for Professionals

westchester, ny bat removal processBat-proofing is difficult and hazardous work. Bat-proofing is always done at the roof line level. This means ladders; scaffolding, and sometimes lifts/boom trucks. When you arebat proofing a house, you may run into direct contact with the bats inside. Anyoneperforming bat proofing work should have their rabies shots.

Our technicians go through extensive training. We use specialized equiptment and employ the nations strictist health and safety precautions. Our detailoriented technicians go inch by inch to ensure all access points are discovered and sealed. Because bats enter the house through very small accesses (3/8 of an inch by 1/2 inch), being thorough is imparative. All our work is guaranteed and comes with a fully backed warranty.

We start with a complete site inspection...
We go through the attic to dertermine what type of bats you have, how large the colony is, and how much damage they have done to your home. We then check the entire roof line to see where the bats are entering and how to best remove them.

The process of bat-proofing is to seal the entire house down to main bat entrance and install special one-way systems over the main accesses. The one-way valves/netting are left up long enough for ALL bats living inside the house to leave. Once all bats have filtered out of your home, we then come back to finish sealing remaining open areas.

We use only the best materials available, so we can provide unparalleled warrantys. No other company in the area has as much experience as we do when it comes to keeping bats out of your house.

 

Hazardous Contamination Removal | Click to Read More

Cleaning up the mess the bats have left behind is extremely hazerdous work. Most companies in our field don't even want to get involved with bat cleanup. In most cases they seal up the house and dont even bring up the health risks to the home owners still sitting in their attic.

• When extensive bat damage has occured, the entire space must be decontaminated. This begins with sealing off the space from the rest of the house to prevent cross-contamination.

• Highly trained technicians, wearing hazmat grade protective equiptment, begin the process of bagging and removing every piece of contaminated insulation.

• Once all insulation is removed, the entire space is vaccumed with commercial grade HEPA-Vacs and disinfected with powerful, bacteria killing solvants.

• Only after the space is deemed safe, can the attic be reinsulated with fresh, high-grade insulation.

Our company has Performed Thousands of bat control and removal jobs throught the years. No Matter How Big Or Small!

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Westchester Bat Removal5 Star Rating Bat Removal and Exclusion in Westchester, NY

    "TriState Wildlife really seems to be at the top of their field. Last spring, we talked with four separate companies about removing the bats living in the attic. TriState Wildlife was the only company that my wife and I felt comfortable working on our house. During their initial visit, they put ladders up to check out the roof, they took pictures of the damage in the attic and showed us recent examples of their work. Kris was professional and able to lay out his exact game plan for getting rid of the bats, going so far as to show us every product he'd use and where.

    Their team came to work every day, until all the bats were all out and couldn't get back in. They were quick and efficient, and their work looked great! It was invisible everywhere possible and compliments the look of the house everywhere else. They were a great company to work with and we couldn't be happier with the results."

    "My husband and I came home from dinner to hear squeaky, clicking noises coming from the bedroom. My husband turned on the light to see two big bats flying around our ceiling fan. We called the local police, since we didn't know who else to call. They gave us TriState Wildlife's phone number and said that they were the best in the area.

    Even though it was later in the evening, they took our call on the second ring. They told us to close them off in the room if possible and stuff a towel under the door, so that they could crawl out into the main house. 'Batman' showed up shortly after, closing himself in the bedroom and walking out with two trapped bats in no time. He was like a Bat Whisperer! They tested the bats for rabies, which luckily came back negative. They also sealed up our roof line, so that they couldn't get back in.

    TriState did an excellent job from start to finish. They didn't harm the bats living in our attic, but made sure they were gone for good. They cleaned up the mess that the bats had left behind and guaranteed all of their work with a 25 year warranty! After seeing them in action, it's easy to see why the police recommended them. They do great work!"

    "I highly recommend TriState Wildlife if you're having wildlife problems, because they're awesome at what they do. They were a huge help when I found out there were bats living in my attic. They clearly explained the scope of the bat problem and all of my options in great detail. From start to finish, they were very knowledgeable and professional. Every time I had the smallest question or concern, they took the time to explain it to me.

    They removed all of the bats in about a week, decontaminated the attic and even installed a new chimney cap. I got to watch the bats fly out of the attic and fail to find a way back inside. It was amazing and I couldn't be happier that the bats are gone for good!"

    "I've never been more scared in all my life! I woke up in the middle of the night with a bat crawling around the covers. After throwing the covers and nearly falling off the bed, my husband and I ran to hide in the bathroom. He was just clearheaded enough to grab his cell phone before slamming the door shut, which allowed us to find TriState Wildlife online.

    Kris immediately started calming us down. He told us that we should be perfectly safe, but if we were more comfortable, we could stay in the bathroom until he got there, since he was just down the road. As silly as it sounds, that's the option we went with. 45 minutes later, he'd found the bat hiding in our closet and removed it from the house, giving us the all clear.

    Kris was able to give us some peace of mind that night, which is incredibly valuable after such a harrowing experience. He prepared the bat for rabies testing and called to give us the good news, that the health department's tests had come back negative! We're both so grateful for their help!!"
