They can also find some comfort and shelter in crawl spaces that go largely forgotten. However, inside of the walls of the home are also potential nesting grounds for mice and other rodents.

Bats and birds will generally prefer the warm comfort of the attics, especially given the relatively easy access they have to the space. In many homes, construction doesn’t consider the future potential for these animals to get into the home and there are many gaps in the eves and around ventilation structures. There are also gaps along the corners of the homes, near the roof and this is where a Batcone Pro Corner system will come in handy.

You want animals to find alternate exits or they could die within your home, which is precisely what exclusion aims to prevent.

The Pro-corner is a ruggedly designed exclusion tool that is ideal for those homes in which the animals are entering and exiting through these particular sections of the house. Birds and bats are creatures of habit and will likely seek out the same section to enter and exit. If you are trying to decide on whether to use a straight or corner Batcone exclusion system, first study the animals to determine where they are gaining access to your home.
