Removing bats from the attic area can be very difficult. There in no sprays or poisons that are registered for bats and since they enjoy a protected status it is illegal to kill them. This leaves only one solution. It is called a bat exclusion. Bat exclusion is a process of sealing a home of all possible entry points and allowing the bats to exit thru a tube called a "excluder". This is a very detailed process, if done incorrectly it could result in bats being forced into the living quarters of homes and building, which creates many more problems besides the bats in the attic.
