HOW DO I GET RID OF BATS FROM AN ATTIC? Bat removal is not a simple task. Bats are not rodents, and have little in common with mice or rats. 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.  That is the main principle. It is often very challenging, and it must be done just the right way.
