Indigenous to New Jersey, you will find little and big brown bats. They are the only mammals in the animal kingdom that can fly and they inhabit trees, bat houses, and buildings (usually choosing a hot attic) where nursery colonies of hundreds and even thousands can form. Although they are greatly beneficial and consume large numbers of insects, they also bring severe health risks and the potential for rabies. These concerns are what make bat removal a priority.

Aside from seeing bats, you may also notice piles of mouse-like fecal material in your attic or on the ground outside your home.
