There are two bats commonly found in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Southern Maine, the Little Brown Myotis Bat (Myotis Lucifugus) and the Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus Fuscus). Both bats are usually found in attics, barns and other hot, dark places.
Bats are found during the spring and summer months in New England. Rarely, a live bat will be found on the ground outdoors or possibly flying around indoors in the cooler seasons. No one should assume the reason it emerged from hibernation so it is best to leave it alone.
Contact A1 Exterminators to handle the situation. If a bat has been infected with rabies they can transmit the disease just by contact, do not try to remove a bat without professional help.
Birds can be a real nuisance pest around your home or business. In New England, there are many restaurants and tourist spots near water where that tend to attract seagulls, pigeons and other types of birds.
Bird droppings can pose serious health risks. In addition to the health hazards, bird droppings will cause damage to your property by dissolving paint, eroding metal, and causing concrete and stonework to crumble. Nests birds create can clog gutters which will cause water to backup and possibly structural damage. Nests that impair ventilation systems will create fire hazards.
After a thorough inspection, A1 Exterminators trained professionals will remove the birds humanely and remove accessible nesting material. Our experienced technicians will treat for bird mites as well as seal any openings to prevent birds from returning and causing further damage.

Raccoons are well-adapted to live in almost any setting as long as there are ample food and water sources. This can include urban and suburban areas. Raccoons are omnivores; they will eat from garbage cans, dumpsters and will often steal pet food.
Raccoon’s will do what they need to in order to survive. This means they can cause property damage by trying to break into basements, garages, roofs, screen doors or pet doors. Once they gain access to your home, they can continue to cause damage by ripping duct work, insulation or wires. Raccoons can be a health risk because they can spread rabies or raccoon roundworm, which are both transferable to humans and your pets.
Do not attempt to remove a raccoon from your attic or basement on your own. It is best to have a trained and licensed professional from A1 Exterminators remove the animal.
