Hello and thanks for submitting a question! Unfortunately, there is no easy solution for removing bats from a barn. exclusion is the only longterm solution, and that means sealing every possible entrance that they are using with bird netting or physically sealing every crack, doorway, etc. I am assuming you are frustrated with bat droppings in the barn, which is a common problem, but the bats are a protected species, and also beneficial as they consume a tremendous amount of insects.

If you absolutely must get rid of them, I would suggest contacting a pest control contractor that may be able to remove them and relocate, but without sealing up the barn, they will likely return.
