Because bats in Massachusetts are protected, attempts to evict a colony of bats can only be done in the early spring (around the month of May) or late summer (from August 1st to mid-October).
We Perform Exclusion Bat Removal
Exclusion is a less dangerous and more successful option than elimination. We set up systems that allow bats to safely leave on their own but make it impossible for them to return the next morning, rather than killing or injuring them in any way.
Exclusion, on the other hand, is only effective when bats are leaving their home. It also means that, because they won’t be able to return, it must be safe for them to depart permanently and find a new home. Excluding bats won’t hurt them if neither of those things are true. The NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife has specified certain dates during which bat exclusions can legally occur for customers in New Jersey. There are no mandatory dates in Massachusetts, but we must verify that bats are not reproducing or hibernating. As a result, we follow a similar schedule for our Massachusetts customers.
Attempts to evict or exclude bats during the maternity season (June and July) may result in the death of flightless young trapped within, as well as an increase in the number of adult bats and orphaned pups. Furthermore, it has been proven that roost closure during the maternity season reduces reproductive success.
Understanding the Different Bat Types in Your Home
The presence of any wild animal in a dwelling, including bats, is an evident sign that it is not weather-tight. It’s worth noting that bats can fit through a hole as small as 1/2 inch in diameter.
During the summer, the majority of bats you see in Massachusetts are:
- Big Brown Bat
- Little Brown Bat
