The picture above portrays the condition of the attic
before we began. There were massive piles of bat droppings under the major roosting areas of the attic as well a significant
layer that was evenly spread throughout the entire attic. The insulation was filthy and heavy from years of bat urine and
guano seeping into it.
If your home has bats,
please be aware that it is imperative that you have them excluded properly and have the home cleaned properly.
Bat exclusion involves
sealing your entire home, top to bottom, except for one exit point. If the bats leave and can not get back in the way they
normally do, they will instantly search for a new way into your home. Since bats only need a tiny opening to enter a home,
if there is one, they will find it. Bats locate these places by the airflow, not by sight. We (humans) locate them mostly
by sight (although some airflow is able to be seen with proper equipment). If bats are excluded from your home, and can find
their way back in, they will. It is their home too (even though they don't pay rent), and they will not leave it unless they
must. THAT IS OUR JOB, to force them to
leave. Give them no choice in the matter. To properly do this, your entire home must be sealed. Even if there are no obvious
openings, they are most likely there. Finding them and sealing them is important.
