At Nature’s Way Pest Control, we provide humane bat removal and bat exclusion in Albany, Saratoga, Lake George, and as far north as Plattsburgh NY. We also work with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department to help document bat colonies, and provide bat control in western Vermont.
Our Bat Control Services include:
- Humane Bat Removal
- Bat Exclusion & Bat Proofing (One-Way Valves)
- Attic Clean Outs & Restoration (Sanitize & sterilize)
- Bat House Installation
Our Wildlife Control Experts humanely remove any bats from inside your home and seal off entry points to prevent them from gaining access in the future.
Attic Clean Outs
We offer comprehensive decontamination services, which include vacuuming the droppings, sanitizing and sterilizing the space, and replacing damaged insulation.
We place coverings over any openings where bats can enter your home. These one-way valves allow bats to escape, but prevent them from crawling back in.
Bat House Installation
We can install a bat house on your property to deter bats from nesting in your eaves and attic, while still allowing them to provide beneficial mosquito and insect control.
About Brown Bats
The little brown bat is now considered an endangered species in many states in the Northeast, including Vermont. This is because of the white nose syndrome that has spread rapidly, virtually eliminating the species.
Female bats typically re-infest the same roosting sites year after year, usually in late April. They will produce a single baby, which is fully grown and capable of flight in approximately 4 weeks.
As bat pest control specialists in the Albany area and Adirondacks, we typically hear from NY homeowners in July, when the baby bats start flying. They have a tendency to get lost on the way back in or out of an attic, and end up in area homes. “Bat season” in Upstate NY and VT continues until late October, when the bats leave for hibernation in a nearby cave.
