We will explain the different steps that are involved with the actual process of bat removal. Our company has specialized in bat work for many years now, so do not hesitate to give us a call if you are in need of bat control in the great state of Maine.
After your one-way exclusion door is on, the bats should be able to travel through it and when they return, they cannot get back in from that area. There may be several entry areas on a large home with bats inside. The most common entry areas are located around chimneys, ridge vents, gable vents, drip edge, gable ends, and many other areas. Bats can slip through a gap 1/2 inch or larger. The next step is to meticulously seal up the rest of the home with hardware cloth, copper mesh, non-expandable foam, and clear calking.
This is where our experience comes in handy because it’s nearly impossible for an amateur attempting a bat exclusion to locate every possible secondary entry area the bats can get back in. And the bats will get back inside the structure through these kinds of areas, simply because bats will utilize their sonar hearing to locate drafts coming from open gaps on a structure. They are able to hear the draft and make their entry into the attic.
Once the exclusion devices are on and the entire home is sealed for secondary entries, the bat job is complete. However, do not doubt there is still a chance the bats will find their way back inside. Even we have done jobs where we thought we did everything absolutely perfect, but it ended up there were still bats getting inside and so we had to go back to those jobs and take care of it.
