Got a call from a client who has been in their new (to them) log home about a month.

Evidently they have discovered a bunch of bats living in the vaulted ceiling space and around the chimney in the walls. Vaulted wood ceilings and they said getting some poop dropping down into the kitchen and other areas.

They got a quote for $1900 to remove them, don't know the how to details or warranty?

Anybody have advice or experience with bat infestations?

If they go out at dusk and find the flight hole or holes, they can then seal it after the bats have left for the evening. The bats will congregate around that spot on the exterior for a day or two but will then move away. The question should be how the droppings are getting into the living area.

Most bat species are protected and ya can't mess with them. What John said is about the only thing that a homeowner can do.

Their droppings(guano) is a major concern, well so are the bats as they can carry some nasty diseases.

I'm pretty sure the WV home inspector license law excludes bat detection....
