Bats in an Attic Can Do Damage to Your Everett Home
Existence of bats in the attic of your home can be damaging for the property as well as your family. Their repeated entry and exit may damage vents, roof edges, and siding. Their bodies might leave unattractive rub marks on building surfaces, while their urine and droppings may also leave unsightly stains. Bat droppings in an attic are also breeding grounds for microbes that cause a potentially fatal disease, histoplasmosis. Persistent foul smell is another fallout of the presence of bats in the attic of your home.
All these reasons should be enough to make you take bat control and bat removal seriously. Also remember that bats can sometimes be rabid, so you should leave the removal of bats in the attic to technicians who are:
- Trained for the job

How Bat Removal and Cleanup Works
You can probably imagine how difficult it is to get a skittish nocturnal animal that flies out of a house. Never mind if there is more than one of them roosting in an attic or crawlspace.
Bat removal truly is a challenge, and needs to be left to professionals who know what works. Indeed, many things that are promoted as solutions aren’t useful at all.
For instance, sometimes retailers advertise mothballs, ammonia, ultrasonic sound emitters, and strobe lights for this purpose. The reality is that none of these things will drive bats away from your family and off your property. All you will be doing by trying them is wasting money and causing yourself trouble.
At Eastside Exterminators, our wildlife experts all specialize in one part of the bat removal process. We make use of a variety of exclusion and cleanup techniques depending on the specific conditions at a given house. But the process generally involves:
- Assessing entry points around the roof, soffits, and eaves.
- Installing one-way systems that allow bats to exit the house but not return.
- Sealing entry points with chimney caps, screen vents and other barriers.
- Clearing, decontaminating, and deodorizing the areas used by bats.
If necessary, our technicians can also discuss replacement of damaged insulation, which is another service we offer.
