Acceptable Management Practices for Bat Eviction and Structural Remediation
This research-based manual highlights common problems caused by bats, along with recommended management techniques. Bats are important, useful, and a protected species. Lethal means of resolving bat conflicts are a last resort and only an option in unusual circumstances. In most situations, you can resolve bat-related issues through exclusion of the bat colony. Once the bats are excluded, problems such as bats accessing human occupied areas, guano and urine buildup, and potential disease issues can be effectively mitigated.
