Bats have the ability to be a common occurrence in many attics. Bats tend to seek out areas that are dark and enclosed so that they are able to roost. This makes attics, garages, basements and other buildings targets for colonies of bats. While bats may play an important role in the ecosystem and can consume more than 3000 insects in a night, they can cause many health hazards to the human residents in a home.

Bat colonies are able to be easily removed from the home without harming them. You are also able to remove them without posing any risk to yourself. You first need to examine your building to decide where they are coming in and out. Bats are more active during the dusk hours, so this will be the best time to watch for bats coming and going. You want to pay close attention to the eaves, chimneys, vents and other high areas that can provide bats with easy entrance points.

Place exclusion screens into place. This will allow bats to fly out, but prevent them from being able to enter back in. You are able to staple or nail small screens over their point of entrance at the top. This will leave the bottom of the screen loose. This design creates a flap that is able to be pushed outward, but not inward.

Wait for one to two weeks to allow all of the bats to leave the area. Once you are positive all of the bats are gone, you will need to permanently seal up the entrance point. You are able to do this with insulation, cement or caulk. It is always nice to provide bats with an alternative to roost other than your attic. Backyard bat houses are able to be purchased from your local home improvement store.
