Professional Bat Exclusion
Do you have bats in your attic and shutters? If so the bats have entered through a small opening in a gable or ridge vent. Is a bat flying inside your living space, if so it could have entered from a chimney? They find small openings to make their homes to protect their colonies from predators.
