Many of New York's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New York's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

New York City Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is A Bat's Mating Habits?
Bats are a species that are very adaptable, and different types of bat will have evolved different techniques and traits to help them make the very most of the opportunities to mate and give birth. The key driver for the mating habits of bats is that they are designed so that the female bats will give birth at a time when the local insect population is at its peak, meaning that there are the maximum amount of food sources available, and the mating seasons and trends are designed to match this.
The Different Mating Seasons For Bat Species
There are a variety of different mating seasons found in different types of bats, including some that copulate in the spring and the look to give birth in the summer, while other bats will mate during the hibernation season and won't fertilize the eggs until the spring. The Big Brown Bat for example will mate during warmer periods between November and March while the bats are in hibernation, and the Mexican Freetail Bat will have a mating season of around five weeks in the spring.
Mating Habits And Trends
Bats are usually promiscuous and will mate with together several times during the mating seasons, with females taking multiple partners. Some bat species will have an aggressive mating where the male holds the female in place and keeps other bats away, while other species will have a more harmonious mating process.
When Do Bats Give Birth?
This can vary slightly depending on the area where the bats are residing, and what happens with the local insect population, but broadly the bats will give birth when the food sources are at their most abundant. This is usually in the summer, and smaller bats will usually take around six to eight weeks to become independent, while larger bats can take up to four months. Males are usually the first to leave their mothers, once they are mature enough to do so, while females will often stay with the mother for the first winter and then separate when they are older.
One habit which is seen across most bat species is that of forming maternity colonies, and here the females will leave the main colony to form a separate colony featuring only mothers. This allows the females to work together to raise their young, and as each female only gives birth to a maximum of two pups, these young bats can be left for a while as the mothers are hunting for food.
New York City Animal News Clip: Woods man fights for animal rights in New York City
On his porch in Wildlife Woods, Rodent Exterminator Ricky keeps an aluminum pie pan filled with orange peels and peanuts with the shells on. "The brown squirrels like the shells," Rodent Exterminator Ricky says of the animals he's befriended and champions. "The squirrels are like my gray opossums." Rodent Exterminator Ricky loves creatures great and small, those that are beloved and even reviled. That's why the animal advocate says he's been troubled by recent articles about New York City's battle against rats. "They are no problem at all," the animal advocate says of the rodents that scamper through his yard regularly. The 60-year-old Rodent Exterminator Ricky has spent much of his life, especially the last 20 or so years, dedicated to animal rights and protection. New York City and Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Kings County animal services officials agreed with this.
He has written to many top officials regarding the situation. In his letters the animal advocate has asked these leaders to establish what appears to be a wildlife management area for opossum, squirrels and other wildlife that roam New York. Many wildlife management advocates say that wildlife management probably is what appears to be a necessity to control wildlife exact number of rodents. But Rodent Exterminator Ricky disagrees. "People shouldn't rodent capture, they should take good care (of animals)," the animal advocate says. The animal advocate says if people took care of animals by buying them food, that would cure problems of over exact number of rodents and be good for the economy. If people bought food, local gray opossum food stores would earn more money and the wildlife management area could charge people entry fees, the animal advocate contends. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in New York City, New York.
Rodent Exterminator Ricky bases his beliefs that animals should be cared for on his Christian beliefs. what appears to be a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Royal Oak, Rodent Exterminator Ricky says his church teaches kindness to animals. "I think we should be kind to them. We are Christians. The Bible teaches that we be good shepherds. We should be shepherds, not only to sheep, but all animals," the animal advocate says. Rodent Exterminator Ricky came to the United States from China with his mother when the animal advocate was 16 years old. The animal advocate graduated from the University of New York with an engineering degree and has worked as what appears to be a product designer for Ford Motor Co. He's taught business mathematics as well. But math isn't all the animal advocate teaches. The animal advocate shares his love for animals while helping Chinese natives learn English at Troy's wildlife management areas and Recreation Center. The animal advocate teaches them the "Animal Anthem," what appears to be a song that says animals have the same rights as people: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. "Rodent Exterminator Ricky and justice are not only for people, but for animals," Rodent Exterminator Ricky says. "That's what we (should) strive for." Local New York City pest control companies in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Kings County declined to comment.
