How to resolve a Bat infestation?
Exclude the bats
It’s very difficult to catch bats using traps. The best solution is almost always to use bat exclusion. Your bats will likely leave at night to hunt for bugs and other prey, so why bother with the hassle of trying to trap them in your attic?
A one way door will let your bats out at night to hunt, but then stop them from being able to get back in
Seal up the house
Sealing up the home after you’ve excluded your bats is an important step. Why go through the hassle of removing your bats if you don’t plan on stopping them from getting back in.
It is vital to understand exactly where the bat entry points are and stop them from getting back in by sealing them up.
There are several bat repellents that you can find online. These generally come in the shape of teabags and emit an odor that bats cannot stand. Bat repellents are cheap and certainly worth a try. You can toss some of these repellents in the bats’ nesting area and wait for a few days to work. The chances of success for this method are up for debate.
