8. In the old farmhouse we used to live in...

we had a bat problem, the attic got infested once. When the exterminator explained about bats and how they live it was kinda eye opening. Gosh that guy talked way to much about bats. It was a little creepy the way he reveled in their lives.
Anyway as far as getting in...he showed me the hole they came in and out of, it was about the size of a half dollar coin, little smaller. How he knew that was the hole... the bottom of the hole was darker than the rest... this is where the body oils of the bat rubbed off after all the in and out.
He had us do a “bat watch” for a couple evenings, a little before the sun went down. He said to try to count the number of bats coming out if we could. He said for every one bat we saw there was maybe 5 to 10 more.
He finally got rid of them all. It was a creepy time. My wife had to go to her parents house for a couple nights.
Hope you don’t have that big of a problem.

So look for small holes that may have the dark spot as described above.
