With deforestation bats are increasingly losing natural roosting sites and therefore using more and more man-made structures. This has made bat control in urban areas much more difficult. Common roosting areas include high buildings, attics, soffits, and under sidings. Common areas of entry include soffit gaps, fascia gaps, roof fence, chimneys, brick openings and any damaged or open doors/windows. Not only is bat removal essential but so is closing off the gaps from where the bats are entering.
