And maybe a little more info would help? Are they in the house? The attic? The garage? The barn? Or just flying around outside.

Bats are a good thing as long as they aren't inside.

one site I went to did not sound all that promising but it did offer these methods:

Environmental Deterrents

If you have some areas that you just canít seal up, but want to discourage bats from taking up residence, do your best to make it look less desirable by mounting lights, hanging aluminum foil, balloons, windsocks, wind chimes (Tips on how to make a wind chime suncatcher), or other highly visible and mobile objects that will make the area appear bright, loud or busy.
they suggested against poisons or just about any other method.

You may can discourage them by putting mothballs up in the attic near their entry points. But, in the meantime, either make or build some bat houses to give them an alternative place to live. We have a few around our place and they fly about in the early evening taking care of the mosquito population, then go to their houses that I placed in the lower parts, near the barn.
