Most animal removal companies really specialize in bat control and bat removal. This is specialty work, and often far more complicated than other types of animal removal projects.

Oftentimes, this involves work for large commercial or industrial buildings. For example, a large group could infest a shopping mall or warehouse, or a large colony of bats could live in the roof of a ten-story condo or hotel. Some bat removal projects can be very large and involved. True, there are plenty of smaller, residential cases. Bats mostly live in the attics of homes and rafters of barns.

However, many of these projects can be very involved as well. Oftentimes bat removal in the New York area means accessing very difficult architecture, as these are flying animals. Bats can squeeze through gaps as small as 3/8 of an inch. If you have a bat problem in the Long Island, Nassau County New York area that you need solved, it's best to call a professional with experience in this field.
Bats are nocturnal. They sleep in roosts during the daytime, and emerge at dusk. If it's a colony of bats living in a building, they crawl to the edge, and fly out. First they head for water and get a drink, skimming the surface. They then feast on flying insects, primarily moths and beetles. After a while they get full and head back to the roost, probably in your overhang or attic. They then fly back out to feed some more. They may make several trips per night. Bats use echo-location in order to aid in navigation and feeding. They emit high-pitched chirps and read the sonar-like returns of the sound waves as they bounce back off of objects. Roosting preference depends on the species and even gender of the bats, but we are only concerned with colonizing bats. These colonies are composed primarily of females. The males roost alone in solitary areas, such as trees. The females form huge clusters, very frequently in man-made architecture such as church towers, attics, bridges, etc. They tolerate and even prefer very high temperatures.
The primary concern involves large colonies. If it's just a few bats, it may not be a big deal. However, if you've got a typical breeding colony of bats in your home or building, it can be a big problem. A large colony is not only noisy and unsettling at dusk and dawn as swarms of bats fly in and out, but the main problem is that they leave their droppings and urine behind. With a large colony of bats, this really adds up. Not only do the droppings and urine rot wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic. The waste has a foul odor, but it can also grow fungal spores that people can breathe in, leading to the lung disease and infection.
