GET RID OF BATS ONCE AND FOR ALL
ARE YOU LOOK FOR BAT REMOVAL SERVICE IN Washington
SCHEDULE EFFECTIVE PEST CONTROL SERVICES IN WASHINGTON
We are the number one company for safe and humane bat removal in the local area, with a team of fully-qualified, appropriately-licensed, and properly insured bat removal technicians ready to implement aggressive and effective control strategies, following a thorough building or property inspection.
The inspection allows us to:
- find entry points that the bats are using to get inside and outside the building
- find piles or areas of bat guano, a corrosive substance that corrodes through walls, ceilings, floors, etc. over time
- locate damage caused by the bats
- highlight access points that’ll be suitable for the installation of exclusion devices
- locate dead animals
- determine the bat species and formulate a plan that is legal in the state, for that particular species
- create a plan of work, a time-frame, and an estimated price for your entire bat removal job
This process: finding, noting, and then resolving all individual problems under the larger bat infestation umbrella, gives us the upper hand when it comes to the removal of entire bat colonies, which we can do without harming a single individual within it once we have all of the information.
Exclusion approaches for bats: Exclusion is the recommended form of bat removal in the United States because it encourages the animals to find their own new home, without the need for often dangerous trapping and pointless relocation efforts. Bats often fly for miles, one side of the world to the other, for migratory purposes. You’d need to travel a great distance to successfully relocate a bat colony so that it doesn’t find its way back home.
FACTOS ABOUTS BATS
You should know a few things if you’re sharing your home or building with a colony of bats, or even a single bat:
- Bats carry a range of diseases that they could pass on to pets, or even humans — including rabies, and histoplasmosis, the spores of which are airborne in feces when it dries and becomes dusty.
- You will very rarely have just the one bat in your home — they live in colonies, hundreds or thousands or even tens of thousands of individuals strong.
- DIY bat removal is illegal in most states because the animal is protected as bat removal technicians are licensed to perform bat removal activity when it is appropriate to do so.
- You are not permitted to move, disturb, or otherwise harass bats, bat nests, or bat babies during the maternity season — it is essential that you wait for the bats to grow old enough to fly out of the nest themselves.
OUR HUMANE BAT REMOVAL SERVICES
Bats are often a very misunderstood creature in American society. They are often hated due to their looks, their flying abilities, and the diseases they can carry. While they can present serious problems to the health of you and your family, it is important to get rid of bats in the most humane, harmless way possible. Bats are very important to any ecosystem, as they control the populations of insects that would otherwise grow very large and cause serious problems. Continue reading to learn more about bats and how you can remove them safely.
What Problems Do Bats Cause?
While bats do cause a lot of damage to homes and properties, the most serious charge against bats is their ability to carry dozens of very harmful diseases that can possibly kill humans in some cases. The diseases they carry are classified as zoonotic diseases. Put simply, a zoonotic disease is any malady that can spread from animal to human. In many cases, bats are regularly found to be carrying 120 or more diseases, each of which can potentially cause serious health risks to your family. Ebola, coronaviruses, rabies, and many other diseases have been found to be carried by bats. There are a couple of common ways that you can contract these diseases from bats. The most common way these diseases are transmitted is by humans coming into contact with feces from the bat. Another, less common but still possible way is by being bitten by the bat. Regardless of how these diseases are spread, they can cause serious problems.
Even with all of the health risks they pose, bats are also detrimental to have inside of your home for another reason, damage. If you are currently or if you have previously had a bat problem, you have likely discovered it in your attic. Bats roost in attics regularly, and they will leave their feces everywhere. Insulation is very soon ruined because of a buildup of bat feces, as its insulative properties are very diminished, costing a lot of money in energy bills. One of the other problems with having bats in your home is their ability to spread harmful diseases, as well as carry other small parasitic creatures in with them. Finally, when bats are inside your home, it will likely cause more bats to find your home and move in as well, creating quite the big problem.
How Do I Remove Bats?
While it might seem like a simple task to remove bats from your home or property, it is highly discouraged. Not only can you potentially contract a potentially fatal illness, but you are also likely to inadvertently kill bats through stress. Since bats are very important to the Washington ecosystem, it is generally a great idea to hire a wildlife removal service.

Getting Rid of Bats In The Attic
Many different types of critters can make a home in your attic. This includes roaches, rats, snakes, raccoons, and even bats. No one wants a bat living in their home, even if they are only making their nests up in your attic.
So, to get rid of your bat problem, we have compiled some simple ways you can deal with any attic bats. Still, keep in mind that you have to undertake this process humanely.
Federal law dictates that bats cannot be killed within a home. This is because bats are a big part of our ecosystem. Luckily, you can get rid of bats in the attic without harming them.
How to Get Rid of Bats In Your Attic:
You need to deal with any bat infestation as soon as possible. Bats can not only carry diseases in your home but they can also cause other problems for you and your family.
In particular, bat droppings can create a noxious smell that can create lung issues. Bats can also create home damage and end up costing you a lot of money for repairs. We have compiled some of the safest and most humane ways to get rid of bats here.
- Try Using Bat Repellent
Bat repellent is not dangerous or toxic to bats, but it can help get bats out of your attic quickly. This first line of defense is cheap and simple to use. You can even make your own bat repellent out of essential oils. Bats have an incredibly strong sense of smell. So they might leave if you spray something around their nest.
- Use Exclusion Devices
Once you have food and water sources removed, try putting up an exclusion device. Exclusion devices will prevent bats from reentering your home. You’ll want to put these devices in your attic sometime in the morning. This way when the bats leave at night, they can’t get back in.
- Seal Up Holes
Any kinds of openings or holes can be used by bats to sneak into your home. You’ll need to seal up any entry points you find. This way the bats don’t sneak back into your house. Set up a few exclusion devices and then seal up any remaining holes in your attack. Remember even the smallest opening can be used by a bat.
- Sanitize Your Attic Area
Bats are more likely to make a nest in a messy attic. And once they do, they’ll leave behind all kinds of bacteria and droppings. To keep bats from coming back, try and clean up your attic.
If the bats are already in this area of your home, you’ll need to wear protective gear though. Not all bats are infectious, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. And, when you are doing the other bat removal methods, we recommend covering yourself from head to toe with protective gear. This way you don’t get rabies from a bat bite.
- Call A Professional To Help With Removal
Bat removal isn’t always easy, and in some cases, you might need to call in a professional. Again, bats cannot be legally killed within your home. And, in most states, you won’t be able to relocate a bat if you have trapped it. So, sometimes, the best option is to have someone with experience solve this issue for you.
