HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. You should instead try to open every possible exit for the bat and allow it a chance to escape on its own. 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.  The process is complex, because bats can enter such tiny areas, about 3/8 inch. 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. Good luck, and be smart about getting rid of bats in the attic!
