Professionally Researched. (What's this?)
Moth balls, which contain paradichlorobenzene or naphthalene, are sometimes used to drive bats out of attics or houses. Moth balls create an unpleasant odor that can encourage bats to leave. Since this odor disappears quickly, you might need to replace moth balls frequently.
The unpleasant odor of moth balls can spread to the rest of your house, and the chemicals can be poisonous if they are mistakenly consumed. In addition, the chemicals in moth balls are carcinogenic. Moth balls might also represent a fire hazard.
Although moth balls can be effective, they involve significant dangers. Instead, some experts recommend preventing bats from entering your house by covering vents, chimneys and other spaces. This method is referred to as "exclusion," and should be performed in early fall.
