The Orkin team has been sealing cracks that allow bats entry into the structure, and also installing mesh guards with one-way valves at the top of Founders that let bats out but don’t let them back in to the attic of the 129-year-old building. Lindahl said bats can get into a building through a hole as small as a half-inch to inch in diameter.
