Cowleys Pest Services Case Studies: Bat intrusion in Allentown

Monday, October 27th, 2014 by Bill Cowley


A homeowner called us about an issue with a flying animal getting into her home in Allentown, NJ. She had no idea what it was. When I arrived, I spoke to the her about the situation, and after getting a better understanding of what was going on, I knew where to start. I searched high and low looking for this animal and when I found it, I realized we were dealing with a bat. 


Bats can carry disease and can cause harm, so I got my protective gear and safely removed the bat from the house. Now I had to figure out how it was getting in. After inspecting the entire house, I found droppings by the front door, showing signs of the bat hanging above the door. The bat must have entered when the home owner either entered or left through that door. She was extremely happy now knowing her family was safe from disease and harm. We safely relocate the bats a distance away so they don't come back.
