You can kill a bat found inside your living quarters. But, it must come into contact with a person or household pet. In this scenario, one can  capture and legally euthanize a bat. The purpose:  testing  the bat for diseases, e.g. rabies. Otherwise, humane methods of bat removal are mandatory in the state of New York as well as the rest of the country.

The older the home, the more expensive bat removal will be, thanks to the large number of gaps that are often present on structures 20 or more years old. That said, Hudson Valley Bat Removal encounters many newer homes that have similar conditions due to poorly constructed rooflines. A number of variables determine the cost, such as the number of bats. For an exact cost on a bat inspection contact our team here at Hudson Valley Bat Removal by Upstate Wildlife Control.

Furthermore, if bats are not found dwelling within the home but rather outside of it, such as scenarios with bats roosting outside of a gable vent, which is not uncommon, the price for removal will be dramatically affected and you’ll be looking at a mere hundreds of dollars for removal as opposed to thousands of dollars for a full bat exclusion.


Common Signs Of Bat Infestation

The most frequent tell-tale sign of a bat problem is having bats showing up inside the home. First-year juveniles get confused about getting out of the home, as opposed to adult bats  accustomed to living inside of the man-made structure. Sick bats tend to invade living quarters.

Additional symptoms of bat infestation include scratching or vocal “screeching” noises that can be heard at dusk and throughout the night when bats are active in their nightly feeding routines. Scratching sounds inside interior walls and drywall ceiling alert homowners. The home may also develop an unpleasant stench over periods of time, which is caused by bat guano & urine contaminates that can accumulate in the attic or interior wall voids.


Bat Removal Process – Certified Live Exclusion Practices

Note: Never hire a company that claims to kill bats as a solution to bat infestation. Companies must handle bats, A Federally protected species, with care. Any abuser incurs serious fines and penalties. A company caught exterminating bats with poison or other euthanasia methods will result in a revoked license.

As a warning consumers, the most common types of practices penalized for these reasons are pest control or “bug” companies. Recommended by many sources, consumers should hire a company that specializes in wildlife when experiencing a bat problem. We’ll note further that handyman, home maintenance, & chimney companies are also not the best choices when it comes to handling a bat infestation.

“Jake and staff are awesome. Have a little bat issue that he came out to start the eviction process (NY rules) and while there I asked if while up there in the roof if by chance if they could maybe clean out my gutters since I can’t get up there. They did such a great job. We are so truly appreciative of all the hard work. Thank you thank you. Such professional family orientated hardworking men. Highly recommended!!!”

Top 5 Bat Problems In New York


upstate wildlife control digital badge


  1. I Have Bats In The Attic – When bats invade an attic space they are likely to build up large amounts of guano deposits scattered throughout the attic. Upstate Wildlife Control can provide attic cleanup when bats make a mess.
  2. Bats In The Chimney- Bats are very common to invade the chimney area. Many people will get bats flying around in the house when bats are present inside their chimney. This is generally due to an open flu in the chimney.
  3. I See Bats In Vents- Vents can be highly attractive to bats because of the drafts protruding from the vents. People will often notice bats in vents when waste begins to accumulate somewhere below the vent area.
  4. Bats In The House- The hot summer seasons can drive bats to come down from an attic into living areas. Bats do this because the attic becomes too hot for them, so they go lower seeking cooler temps.
  5. Flying Bats In Church- One of the more common structures for bats to invade are churches. Many times churches have open steeples, welcoming many different creatures including bats. Upstate Wildlife Control can help.
