Will My Home Insurance Cover a Bat Infestation?

January 8, 2024

Our attic has bats in it, and we want them gone. I keep hearing these weird noises, and I’m a bit freaked out about it. Will my home insurance cover a bat infestation?

Home insurance usually doesn’t cover your house’s regular upkeep, nor does it cover age or neglect. But then again, it depends on the insurance company, so we recommend you check your insurance policy and consult with your insurer. However, even if your policy doesn’t cover bet infestation damage, you can usually add the respective addendum at the expense of a higher premium.
