What is Bat Exclusion?
Bat exclusion is the process of sealing all potential entry spots which bats use to gain entry to your residence or commercial property. These entry spots may include vents, chimneys, opening in siding and windows, around soffits, and even roofs. Outside, overhanging ledges and porch roofs are some of the favorite roost areas for bats.
A bat infestation should always be attended to by professionals as bats are protected species under the Canadian law. With Wildlife Pro you can be assured that our wildlife exclusion experts will help you prevent and exclude bat roosts on your property.
Our Bat Exclusion Process
Our bat exclusion process has been developed with over 10 years of research in wildlife exclusion services. Some of the steps involved in our bat exclusion process are:
- Identifying eaves, ridge caps, vents, chimneys, and other possible entry points around the roof
- Finding bat droppings around entry sites to detect bats
- Once bats are detected, our team of wildlife exclusion experts seals all the entry spots with heavy-duty silicone, installs vent cap covers and then one-way doors so that once bats move out, they cannot come back
- Remove one-way door and seal all holes

What can I expect after bat exclusion?
After the bat exclusion service is done, you may find bats outside of your property for the first couple of weeks. This is an excellent sign which reflects that the bats or the bat colony was successfully excluded, and they can’t find a way to get back to their roost. They may cram themselves into gaps in logs, behind shutters, or behind gutters because they are also prey during the day.
What is the Best Time of Year to Exclude Bats?
The best time to remove bats is in the early autumn. If you come across bats hibernating in the winter, you can wait till spring to get rid of them.
Do bats chew on wires?
A bat won’t chew. They aren’t like mice or rats. They are insectivores, who consume insects whole. Therefore, if you have bats in your attic you can be assured that they won’t chew on wires or electrical fittings.
Can bats chew though spray foam, wood, or screen?
Since bats cannot chew, they cannot harm foam, wood, or screens in that way. However, they may be a nuisance since they have strong teeth.
How long does bat exclusion take?
A typical bat exclusion process will take around two to four days depending on the extent of bat infestation. During winters, it might take longer for the bats to leave due to hibernation.
