Live Bat Exclusion

Live Bat Exclusion is a 4 step Process. Discover How we get rid of bats.

Identifying the Bat Problem & Entry Points

Identify the entry and exit points: Observe the bats at dusk to locate their entry and exit points. These are the areas where they are most active and where they leave and return to their roosting spot.

Seal entry points: Once you have identified the entry and exit points, you can seal them off during the day when the bats are not present. Use caulk, foam, or other sealants to close any openings, but make sure to leave one opening for the bats to exit.

Installing One-Way Bat Valves

Install a one-way exclusion device: A one-way exclusion device, such as a bat cone or netting, can be installed over the remaining opening to allow the bats to leave but not return. It is important to make sure the device is securely attached and properly placed so that it doesn’t harm the bats.

Re-inspection (Removing the Bat Doors)

Wait until the bats have left: Once the exclusion device is installed, wait a few days to make sure all the bats have left the roost. You can tell if the bats have left by observing the entrance point at dusk to see if any bats are leaving.

Remove the exclusion device and seal the opening: Once you are sure all the bats have left, remove the exclusion device and seal the opening with a more permanent solution, such as metal flashing or wire mesh.

Clean-up Restoration

Cleaning up bat guano (feces) can be hazardous because it can contain harmful microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria, and potentially harmful viruses, including the histoplasmosis virus. Here are the steps you can follow to safely and effectively clean up bat guano:

  1. Wear protective gear: Put on personal protective equipment, including disposable gloves, a respirator mask, and protective clothing to avoid direct contact with bat guano and to prevent inhalation of dust particles.
  2. Wet the guano: Dampen the bat guano with water to prevent it from becoming airborne when cleaning.
  3. Use of high powered insulation vacuum or other tools to scoop up the bat guano, and place it in sealed plastic bags for disposal. 
  4. Clean the area: Once all the guano has been removed, clean the affected area with a latex based odor control such as Fiberlock.
  5. Dispose of protective gear: After cleaning, dispose of all the protective gear in a sealed plastic bag.
  6. Install new insulation through out the attic.
