Another way to tell if you have a bat problem in a building is to look for signs of guano on the outside of a home.

HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. They are generally harmless animals, they don't chew on wires like rodents do, but the main problem they cause is that they poop and pee a lot. There is no effective bat repellent for example that can do the job easily. The proper way to get rid of them is to exclude the colony – seal off 100% of possible secondary entry points on the home and remove all of the bats from the building safely. If not then make sure to wear protective clothing and a very well-made mask. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way. An amateur attempt, by someone with no experience, or worse, a pest control company that uses bat poison, could result in disaster – dead, rotting bats, and bats swarming throughout the walls and the home. This leaves no way for them to easily get out and will end up causing these important little creatures to die in your attic.
