The structure – the bats roosting area…

Bat love high places so this area of entry is often at the peak of a building. Here is an example of an area of a roof where the overhang joins into another peak. Often times the plywood overhang stop short of meeting up with the actual roofing material. This creates an opening plenty big enough for a bat to enter. Bats only need about 3/8ths of an inch to enter, a good rule of thumb is that if you can stick your finger in the hole a bat can enter there as well.
