Severna Park real estate developers are able to build a 2,800 sq.ft. home in less than a month and whole communities in less than a year. As these developers throw new homes together, they fail to think about bats in Severna Park. They don’t consider how to bat proof a house, how to keep bats out of a chimney, how to stop bats from roosting behind shutters, or how to keep bats out of the attic. Roofers leave plenty of ¼” inch or larger gaps around the roof line which allows bats to enter the attic space.

Finding Bats in your Annapolis Attic

Anne Arundel County residents that have bats flying around inside the house often do so because they have a bat colony roosting in the attic.  Occasionally a single bat (especially young ones) will venture away from the colony of bats and crawl through ventilation ductwork or the bat will crawl through the gaps around an attic access panel.   Often Anne Arundel County Bat experts report finding bats in the walls of homes around Annapolis.  Historical homes around Annapolis are prone to have a bat problem do to the abundance of entry points around the homes exterior.
