I have a problem with bats roosting in the openings of the ribs at the eaves of the roof. Is there some type of capping that can be applied or maybe even foam instilled to prevent this

There are profiled closure strips from foam eithe vented or solid. I would recommend vented and they are vermin resistant and easty to install. Bats are protected in some areas so there is a process to remmove them . Best to wait until dusk when they leave and then do a section. Start where they are not at and repeat this each nightuntil you have it down to a few holes, then close them up permenantly. Appreciate that they will not move too far away so either build a bat house or start closing up all other posssible areas.

Allan, thank you for the quick response. We hoped to "fix" the roof this spring--early, before the bats return. We have a nursing colony of about 500-700 bats returning before we know it so your information is quite helpful.
