Installation Instructions For Proper Bat Removal From Homes And Buildings Using the Bat Valve Model TBV-SG3
Please Follow Federal, State, and Local Regulations When Performing Bat Removal
Step #1 Identifying Problem Areas
You have made the first step in removing bats from your structure by purchasing Bat Valve Model TBV-SG3. You have probably had a bat in your home or business or found bat guano in the attic or wall space. Bats are significant for the ecosystem but horrible for your health when found living inside your occupied home or business.
Bats can introduce zoonotic diseases such as rabies as well as many ectoparasites like bat bugs and fleas into your home or office. The bat guano can accumulate and expose you, your family, or your customers to the toxic fungal spore histoplasmosis. Visit https://www.cdc.gov/rabies/bats for more information regarding bats and your health.
Start by locating the main entry/exit points on the structure to begin the bat eviction process. To locate the entrances and exits, you will perform a bat watch near dusk and watch for where they fly out. The best way to find these locations is to look over the building for construction gaps. You must be observant will performing this task. Familiar places for bat entry are gable vents, soffit returns, masonry gaps, and brick gaps along the frieze boards. In most cases, you will find bat guano around the entry location on the exterior of the building which can guide your entry point observations.
Step #2 Start Bat Exclusion
Once you have identified the entry locations around the structure, start the exclusion process by sealing gaps. You can find many products 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 animals or construction gaps left by builders!
How many bat valves to install? The number depends on the number of bats using a structure and the number of areas a building contains. For instance, if the home has three separate areas that could be inhabited by bats, it would be recommended to install at least one bat valve per section of the house to trap out the bats. If the bat population is high, it is also recommended to install multiple bat valves to allow easy egress.
Step #3 Installation of Bat Valves
IMPORTANT: Seal All Gaps other than the ones you have selected to install The Bat Valve, or the bats will access the building using the other entry points .
Now that you sealed all the other gaps on the structure install the bat valves over the remaining holes that the bats tend to use most. You attach the Bat Valve Model TBV-SG3 with screws. When installing each device, be sure that there are no gaps left around the outside as bats will try to squeeze back in.
The bat tube which extends from the bat valve adapter is self-supporting. You must position the Bat Valve Model TBV-SG3 in a way where bats cannot crawl back inside. Be sure to elevate and set the end, extending up off the roof or away from the building.
Step #4 Remove Bat Valves
When bat activity has ceased, then remove the bat valves and finish sealing the entry points. Duration of time for the bats leaving once you install the bat valves depends on weather and outside temperature.
