Bat-Free Belfries: A Guide to Bat Proofing, 1995 (VHS-23:00). This video explores the role of bats in northeastern ecosystems and highlights the need for their protection and management. It gives detailed guidelines on dealing with a single bat or a colony of bats in a building, identifying bat entrances, sealing buildings to prevent bat access, and providing alternative roosts—bat boxes—for displaced maternity colonies to occupy. The program is intended for homeowners seeking solutions to a bat problem, county extension agents, pest control operators, and wildlife conservation officers confronted with bat nuisance complaints.
