STEPS FOR INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROPER BAT REMOVAL FROM HOMES & BUILDINGS
Step 1 – Identify Problem Areas
You have made the first step in removing bats from your structure by purchasing The Bat Valve. You have probably had a bat in the house or found bat guano in the attic or wall space in most cases. Bats are great for the eco-system but detrimental for your health when they are found living inside an occupied structure. Bats carry and transmit many zoophytic diseases to humans, including the rabies virus Bats also host several ectoparasites, such as fleas and bat bugs, which can infest your home or office. The bat guano can accumulate and expose occupants to toxic fungal spore histoplasmosis.

Step 2 – Start Bat Exclusion
Once you have identified entry locations around the structure start the bat exclusion process (sealing of gaps). Many products can be used to seal bat entry points. If you find that you also have rodents accessing the building, be sure to use chew-proof, products such as sheet metal and wire mesh so your repairs aren’t compromised.
Bats do not chew to gain access; they use openings created by other critters like squirrels, lack of maintenance to the structure such as wood rot, or construction gaps left by builders.

Step 3 – Installation of Bat Valves
Important: All Gaps must be sealed (other than the ones you have selected to install The Bat Valve over), or the bats will use the other entry points to get back in. Now that all other gaps are sealed on the structure install the bat valves over the remaining holes that the bats tend to use most. The TBV-FR4 and TBV-Flex2 are both attached by using screws. The TBV-SG3 is generally held in place by compression. When installing each device, be sure that there are no gaps left around the outside as bats will try to squeeze back in. You can place copper/steel mesh, excluder fabric, caulking, foam, or other materials around the bat valves to ensure no gaps are left. The bat tube which extends from the bat valve adapter is self-supporting. The end of this tube MUST be positioned in a way where bats cannot crawl back inside. Be sure to elevate/position the end, extending up to the roof or away from the building. See Images Below Highlighted In Transparent Red.
Step 4 – Remove Bat Valves
When bat activity has ceased, remove bat valves and finish sealing entry points. The duration of time to leave bat valves installed depends on weather and outside air temperature. Typically, 1-2 weeks is sufficient in temperatures with nighttime lows above 55°F.
