About Olympia Bat Removal

Welcome to olympiabat.com. We are the only qualified bat removal company in Olympia, Washington. Our wildlife control company has been working with bats for over 30 years. In addition to wildlife removal, we offer preventative maintenance services that prevent unwanted bats from entering your home or establishing a colony in your attic. What drives everything we do is our belief in the importance of creating a balance in our ecosystem to allow humans and bats to reside without conflicts. When most people see a bat, they see a flying rodent. But do you know bats are one of the most adaptive creatures on the planet? Having been in existence for over 50 million years, they have evolved to inhabit every continent except Antarctica. Asides from pollinating important crops that feed people, many species also feed on insects, thereby keeping the population of harmful insects in check. But regardless of how fascinating and important bats are to the ecosystem, the last thing anyone wants is to have a bat colony roost in their homes. Bat removal should be done by specialists because they are delicate creatures. Mishandling them can damage their wings, and that's synonymous with a death sentence. Moreover, the use of poison is NOT an option considering it's inhumane and also illegal in several regions. At our company, we make use of only exclusion - the best and most effective method for dealing with a bat infestation problem! Exclusion involves installing one-way doors in their entry holes so that they're unable to get back in once they leave for food. We also provide cleanup and repair services. We have remained consistent in delivering awesome results since our inception. Moreover, we place a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. That's why we have consistent 5-star ratings on Google and Yelp. And for three years in a row, we have been voted the best wildlife company! We operate 24-7-365, so don't hesitate to call us at 360-214-3033 to discuss your bat problem and schedule a fast appointment.


We are experts at removing bats from residential properties. Whether you have a single bat trapped in your house, a colony roosting in your attic, and/or various other problems, there is no need to worry! During our removal process, we make sure to inspect your entire home carefully, tracking down all the entrypoints bats are using to invade your place. Next, we perform a process called live exclusion (where no bats are harmed and all exit your property), then seal all entry holes completely shut. We also take care of the cleanup process after, so your home is safe and clean!

Besides residential areas, we also have a wealth of experience removing bats from commercial properties! We begin by investigating the area for possible bat entrances, covering holes even as small as 1/4 of an inch. Through our live exclusion process, bats leave the building through one-way exits, and we seal up every hole afterward. Once the bats have been removed, we perform a cleanup process. This includes dealing with guano, replacing damaged insulation, and decontaminating the place.

What Our Customers Say

Do Bats Avoid Light?

People have certain ideas about bats. We know about them from books and movies, and that has shaped our opinions and knowledge of them. Since a lot of what we know comes from books and movies, that information may not be fully accurate.

There is plenty to learn about bats. Some information out there is plain false, like bats being blind. They can see, though they have small eyes.

One thing they can see is light. Since bats are nocturnal and have weak vision, people do assume that they avoid light. How true is that? Do bats avoid light and prefer dark spaces, or is that another piece of misinformation?

Bat Habitats

Bats are nocturnal. They prefer to come out when the sun is down and when they can fly freely. The rest of the time, they are sleeping somewhere dark.

Bats will oftentimes sleep in dark spaces where there is little light, like attics. If they can get away into a dark space to sleep, they will go.

Part of this avoidance is simple – they are trying to sleep. This is nothing new with nocturnal animals. They avoid light during the day so that they can rest.

Having sensitive eyes does not help, either. In general, dark spaces are better for them. It makes it easier for them to see and navigate the world around them.

Going to the Light

All of this does not mean bats strictly avoid light. In fact, there are times when the bats will want to go towards the light. This is why bats may stick around your home if you have porch lights on.

Light sources, at night, mean food. Insects go to food and bats will go to the insects. Like any other animal, they are going to follow where the food goes in order to have their meal.

If they see that your lights are on, they may go to it. You may see some bats flying around your property as they search for food that follows the light.

This is a common occurrence. Any time there is a reliable food source, animals are going to stick around it. They know where to go to survive.

Bats do not avoid light entirely. They may avoid it at times, especially when trying to sleep, but not all the time. When it comes to survival, they are going to go to the light to find food. They know it is there and they know it is an easy catch.
