Live Bat Exclusion

Live bat removal through a "live bat exclusion" : To get of bats from an attic or building we use a one way door system. Bats can get out, but not back in. There are many ways for a one way door system but they must be installed precisely or they wont work. We recommend staying away from netting because bats will sometimes catch their wings in this netting and tangle up and prevent the exclusion. We recommend using an open airway system versus using a flapper or a hinge door device. Once these animals are out, we want to make sure they can't get back in. We seal all areas with a galvanized hardware cloth and a 35 or 50 year caulk. We have a full five year warranty on all repairs, no bats.
