Bat Exclusionary Work - How to Keep Bats Out

Bat exclusion and bat proofing is the best method for evicting colonies of bats from a building. Bat exclusion involves sealing all possible entrance holes and installing one-way exclusionary doors (bat doors). These “doors” allow the bats to leave the roost freely in the evening but prevents the bats from re-entering. Safeway Wildlife & Pest Control determines the main entry points and places the doors in that location. The sealing continues around the entire upper levels of the structure, including eaves, dormers, chimneys, and soffits. Safeway Wildlife & Pest Control uses the best quality materials to ensure a professional finish. All bat proofing is guaranteed.
