Seattle Bat Removal

Not all wildlife removal companies are the same. Some have experience with bat removal projects, and are familiar with the proper methods for bat exclusion. But others use incorrect techniques, such as bat traps, summer exclusions, or worse, fumigants. Do your research before you hire someone! I personally recommend our field technician for bat control in Seattle.

I have communicated with our bat expert in Seattle for many years, and he abides by these bat removal principles:

  • Always perform a proper live exclusion.
  • Never use poisons or fumigants or kill bats.
  • Never use traps or attempt to relocate bats.
  • Never do a removal during the maternity season.
  • Seal all entry points shut with guarantee.
  • Offer attic cleanup and decontamination.
  • Properly Washington licensed and insured.
As I discuss repeatedly on this website, bat removal projects are not easy, and not for amateurs. I have seen many horrible attempts at bat colony removal throughout the years, done both by do-it-yourself homeowners and by incompetent companies. Never hire a Seattle pest control company that uses poisons for rodent or insect control. They often attempt the same approach for bats. Not only is this incredibly destructive and illegal in Washington, but it results in disaster for the homeowner, and does not actually solve the problem. It's very important that the removal of bats from the attic of your home is done in the correct manner, and there is only one correct way, with a live bat exclusion. To read more about this process, read my bats in the attic home page.

Before you hire anyone, including our tech at 206-829-4744, talk to them, and make sure that they understand what they are doing, and that they have experience. Be sure that they do abide by the principles I outlined above. This is not just for the sake of the bats - I'm no tree hugger - it's for the sake of doing the job correctly, for you and your property. The fact that it's good for the bats as well is a lucky coincidence. And really, bats are good animals, which I'm sure you realize. I hope you have a good experience with your Seattle bat control project. You can email me personally if you have any problems with our tech, and I will talk to him, but I doubt that will be necessary. Good luck!

I am looking for some bat information, I hope you can help. I just checked a wren house that was empty about a month ago, next to a wren family in another one about 20 feet away. The lawn mower guy was in a hurry and crashed it with the back of his mower when he twirled around and by the time I saw it all the babies were gone. They were about 2 weeks or more old. Within a day the empty birdhouse rapidly filled up with twigs by a wren over the course of a few days but as far as I could tell no babies were around. I didn't want to disturb the wrens after all the trauma that disrupted their lives until today I checked the box to see what if anything was taking place. Something very large scooted across the top of the twigs and I could see long spindly legs on the wall. I don't think it's a spider that size. Could it be a bat? I would be thrilled. Years ago I had bats every evening and then they all disappeared but my disappointment stayed. Recently there have been winged fliers at dusk and I am hoping they are bats, I don't think moths get that big and fly with so much precision but I can't be sure yet because I cannot see them, only the silhouette. The wren house I am speaking of is in the exact yard where I have experience the winged diners. I doubt they are birds because my little swallow season is over and they feed out across the fields when they are nesting anyway, and this is in a yard with big trees. Thanks for your time. You are so knowledgeable. I know this is not a bat removal question. If you get a chance, let me know what you think. Thanks! Joan

I had a bat problem but I believe I have used proper methods and have let them get out and have now covered their entry points. Now I have to figure out what to do with whatever is behind the walls and in the "attic" space. I have an roof structure with peaks and insulation space rather than an attic. I originally discovered the bats when i detected an odor in the master bathroom. we removed 6 inches or so of the dry wall in three stud spaces and found a large number of dead bats. clearly they had gotten caught and stuck in this limited stud space from above. We do not knows how many stud spaces are involved but we no longer have an odor. Would you or do you know anyone who would come out to port Angeles for an assessment and clean up?
