It’s the process of removing a bat colony (bat family) from a structure humanely. The process usually requires the use of a “One Way Bat Door” or bat cone that allows the bat colony to exit or leave the house without allowing the bats to regain entrance back into the house.
The one way bat door is only effective if the entire perimeter of the home or business structure is sealed properly. When sealing the property the use of silicone caulk and other industry standard sealing products are used to properly seal all access points that the bat or bats may try to use to regain entrance to the home.
A bat can be tenacious and can fit into the smallest of voids or areas that are open, in fact it can be be extremely difficult for the do it yourself homeowner to find and seal all the areas that a bat kind find the access the home. This is because most of the areas a bat will gain access is on the roof line, gable vents, siding, eaves and any spot the has a hole big enough to allow for access.
Most of the calls for bat removal are in the attic, in the chimney and in the attic eaves and most homes today have an aggressively inclined roof pitch which makes it very dangerous to traverse and injuries can happen from falls from the roof.

If the roof is an aggressive pitch special equipment may be needed to ensure safe bat removal for both the professional and the bats that are in the attic.
In Charleston, WV Big Brown Bats and Small Brown Bats are the typical problematic species in homes, church and business buildings. These two species are very similar except in size and are found through out the state.
Bats will hide under insulation in the attic and can be hard to find if you suspect a bat removal issue in your attic. Bats will continuously defecate (poop or pee) so bat droppings are a good indicating factor of a bat removal problem in the attic. Some so called home inspectors have an issue in determination of the difference between rat droppings and bat droppings, which has launched a movement lately with home inspections by wildlife removal professionals as well.
