Bats in attic

Asked May 31, 2020, 10:37 AM EDT

My unfinished attic space is inhabited by bats that we have previously ignored with a live and let live attitude. However, I'm concerned that they may be a human health hazard. Is there a good way to evict them without causing mortality, and what is the best time of year or month to do this?

Thank you for the question. Bats are wonderful creatures as you have mentioned but I definitely understand the desire to exclude them from your house. Please follow this link for information on how to handle your situation(from Penn State Extension) -

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have additional questions!
