|New Jersey Bat Removal Service
|Garden State Wildlife Control provides humane removal of bats in the house and bats in the attic in New Jersey. Our Animal
Control Officers will remove the bats from the house and install barriers to prevent their return. Bats are an important link in our
New Jersey ecosystem, and bats are beneficial for New Jersey insect and pest control; we WILL NOT kill bats, and it won't
even be considered. Garden State Wildlife Control will combine bat removal service with bat house installation, if desired.
Garden State Wildlife and Animal Control does not sell fear!
We will provide the customer with accurate and honest information which will enable the customer to make an informed decision
on what action to take for their bat removal or bat-proofing of a house. We will provide the customer with
"peace of mind"; knowing whether bats are in the attic or house exterior, or presence of a health risk.
Bats have an unjustified bad reputation; they don't attack people, and they wont fly into your hair when you're asleep,
but it is important to keep humans separated from bats. In addition to being a potential rabies vector,
bat fecal matter is a potential growth medium for microorganisms, such as the fungus which causes histoplasmosis. Arthropods
(beetles and cockroaches) are also associated with bat colonies, as are ectoparasites such as ticks, mites, fleas and "bat bugs".
Garden State Wildlife Control will perform a complete inspection of your New Jersey residence if there are bats in the house
and determine a course of action to remove bats from the attic, or remove bats from the house and prevent their return!
|Garden State Wildlife and Bat Control
|Bats are protected under the NJ Nongame and Endangered Species Conservation
Act. As such, bat removal in New Jersey is not permitted between May 1 through
July 31, when juveniles are unable to fly and forage for food on their own.
Nursing mothers will work frantically to access a structure in other locations to be
with their young! Also, causing the young to starve to death is cruel, illegal,
and will result in odor problems from the dead young.

Do you appreciate bats? Bats are harmless and timid animals, but unfortunately the folklore, hysteria and superstitions are often
perpetuated by "professionals" who should know better. Bats don't "attack" people, they won't fly into your hair, they aren't blind, and
less than one-half of 1% of the bat population is estimated to carry rabies! Bats are remarkable and valuable insect-devouring
animals! Consider installing a BAT HOUSE to keep your local mosquito population under natural, pesticide-free control!
Our bat houses are all constructed according to the standards established by Bat Conservation International;
the standards which have demonstrated the most successful occupations. All of our bat house interiors are stained black,
and all joints are sealed with a terpolymer sealant and/or latex caulk and completely waterproof.
The houses pictured below are all four-chamber nursery houses. Studies have shown that the greater number of chambers; the greater
chance of success! Bat houses installed in N.J. should be black.

|What should a customer expect from a Garden State Wildlife Control bat inspection:
1) Complete exterior inspection of the structure; soffits, fascia, chimney flashing, shingles, siding and every exterior seam.
2) Thorough attic inspection, including the deep recesses of the attic where bats frequently access, but not easily observed.
3) Sunset emergence count, to definitively locate the exact points of exit and entry.
Without these three components, which complete a thorough inspection for bats, it is impossible to confirm or rule out the presence of
bats in a structure. As wildlife experts, GSWC provides a level of service not available with most "pest control" companies;
our residential bat inspections take approximately 2-3 hours to complete!
Be suspicious of any "pest control" services offering "free estimates" for bat removal.

|PLEASE NOTE: Per NJ State Regulation, as of April 30, all bat evictions must wait until August 1.
Juveniles are being raised and maternal colonies cannot be disturbed,
but we are still able to perform inspections, surveys, and bat house installations during this nursing period.
Families which have a colony of bats residing within an attic or soffits have a unique opportunity to
maintain what many families attempt without success....their own bat colony!
Wildlife biologists recommend bat house installations during this period; bats will become familiar with
this alternative roost prior to their eviction from within the human structure,
increasing the success of maintaining the colony in its current location.
