What time of year can bats be removed in California?
This is going to depend somewhat on the species of the bat, but in general bats seem to give birth anywhere from May to early July, so definitely right now would not be a good time to exclude the adult bats if you are dealing with a structural infestation. Bats are not always protected animals, but given the benefit they provide when living outside where they belong they should be preserved if at all possible. Excluding the adults while the young are still inside a structure and unable to leave is, obviously, going to result in the death of those young, and beyond just the tragic loss this causes it also leads to inside problems with odors, flies, and other things associated with a dead animal.
