here's one i've been working on



the reason i don't use spray foam if it could be exposed to the elements another company did an exclusion on this house 5-6 years ago and their foam job has failed plus it looks ugly imho to have foam hanging out of the house

It has been the craziest bat year ever.... weird how in some areas (besides the northeast affected by WNS) some guys are way down on calls. I've been doing inspections since early June when the calls were already constant. My fall bat work schedule is half full already.... not a bad problem to have! Starting next week as the young are flying at all areas I am monitoring.

I agree with the foam comment above..... I haven't used it for several years now, as I was doing a lot of follow-up bat work where other companies used only foam for sealing, and as it deteriorated from weather bats would return into the structures. In my opinion it only has about a 2 year lifespan outdoors. It also will "fall out" after a single winter if the structure experiences much contraction and expansion due to temps. Another thing I have seen is female bats actually chewing through foam if they were excluded before the young could fly. (No, not from personal experience)

I use caulk for the small gaps (often with backer), and cobra-vent for large gaps, often covering all sealed areas with metal trims. Yep, it takes longer and costs more, but if anyone thinks bat work is fast money they aren't doing it right.

Foam sealing with pageris foam with copper stuff it backer or cobra vent material with silicone glazing over the foam will ensure many years of life on smaller void seal areas.

However, if one doesnt glaze the foam it will deteriate in a few years and turn to powder little by little from UV exposure.I have seen bats chew foam several times over the years when used at primary entry points as a stand alone sealant.

The phone is ringing really well in IN, could be my best bat season ever if it keeps up. I am sure glad to see others using cobra vent I am planning on using some on an exclusion that I dont want to spend a week with the break on. I have never heard of anyone else using it before and thought I had made a brilliant discovery lol. I guess I should have joined this forum a long time ago.


it is not a stupid question if you do not know the answer

Why not use types N Mortar.....??` It does not need to be face sealed...Color can be added......And is what is missing
It can be applied using a mortar bag and tooled within a hour or so depending on the temp.....

LT, just came back from a "bat in a bedroom" call. You're right, it's that time of year again.

Unreal amount of bat calls! Had to add two guys part time who I used to work with at CC just to keep up with bat pre-exclusion work and no let up on coon calls and starting to get baby squirrels again. Did an interview today with news 5 for bats and was quoted in a news 12 bat interview last night, unfortunately we were miss quoted, average bat seal up is between $600 and $3000 they used that price for the cost of clean up and we have a few clean up's over that, so just waiting for the irate calls. Getting calls from Robb R as well and have noticed that the girls have to spend less time on phone with customer explaining the process before we set up appointment.(Thanks Robb!) We use no foam unless it is backer rod and if you have not tried it, Solar Seal #900 is a great sealant/adhesive for bat work! www.npcsealants.com

Okay here's a great tip for all you bat guys. This is how to completely avoid call backs on bat jobs. My son went to bid on a bat exclusion today that one of our competitors bid at $2000.00. There wasn't a bat anywhere on the property. No chance of a call-back on that job!

how exactly do the bats chew the foam? I know the foam deteriorate and it will eventually fall apart and/or out.

But how do the bats chew the foam out, like are you finding bats with foam in their mouth or what?

what do you mean? below the exit? are you saying there is a entry exit point and you are finding the foam dust or what.

I do not believe that bats can chew through foam.
