How Legal Is it to Bat Trap in Fresno

California bats can be a menace to a household. They harbor diseases and can dump all over your Fresno property. A sure way to deal with such a menace is to exclude them from your property. There are various exclusion techniques available for you to choose from. Exclusion is a process that requires patience on your part. If you want to get rid of the bats immediately, you might be considering using a trap. In some states, trapping of bats is illegal and is liable to punishment by the law. Bat trapping can be prohibited depending on:

Controversial purposes

If a bat species is marked as endangered, the state may prohibit its trapping because trapping is an inhumane method. In America where there are about 20 bat species, 5 of them are marked as endangered. They include;

  • Florida bonneted bat
  • Grey bat
  • Indiana bat
  • Ozark big-eared bat
  • Mexican long-nosed bat
  • Virginia big-eared bat

  • Location

    It is almost impossible to exclude California bats in open areas. Since bats are frugivorous and herbivorous, they may cause losses to farmers. A farmer may be allowed to trap them if that is the case. Otherwise, trapping bats in areas where they can be successfully excluded is illegal.
