Responding to a bat colony

If a colony of bats is found at a school:

  1. The school should notify IPM personnel, who will determine the best way to exclude or remove the colony.
  2. The principal should notify parents, explaining the situation and plans for removing and excluding the colony.
  3. During and after the exclusion process, the campus should be put on a 4-week watch period, when IPM personnel will inspect the interior and exterior of the facility for any signs of bats. They should notify the maintenance department if any bats are found.
