Not all at once, and they make several trips in and out per night. But the attic of a home will do quite nicely. Otherwise, they migrate and return each spring. Bats live a long time and remember for a long time, and will attempt to re-enter the building for a long time. If you go into the attic often you may see signs of their residency more quickly. In order to remove the bats, you have to funnel them out at their usual primary exit/entry holes. Not only do the droppings and urine corrode wood/metal, but the weight of them can collapse the ceiling below the attic - I've seen if a few times. Check inside during the day and look for daylight after sealing.

During the night they are wide-awake which puts you in greater danger. Seal-Up: After you are 100% certain that all the bats are out, remove the exclusion devices and seal the entry holes shut. They mate in October, before winter hibernation, and after a delayed fertilization and a 60 day gestation, give birth to one or two baby bats in early June. You can waste your money on any of a wide range of marketed devices or you can spend your time excluding the bats from your house and insuring they don’t reenter. They gather to mate before hibernating and the females store the sperm inside of their body until after hibernation. Accumulations of their droppings (guano) can cause odor and bug problems, which is the primary reason bats should be excluded from a structure occupied by people.

One-way tubes, cones or other devices can be installed when the entry point is found. Cleanup: The bats have left droppings in your attic or walls, perhaps by the million.
