How to remove bats and rodents from barrel tile roofs

Bats and rodents prefer to live in barrel tile roofs just like in the chimney and attics. However, removing them from there can be a very big challenge as their entry points are mostly vertical not horizontal.

The barrel roof is made of clay, which absorbs heat from the sun and retains it in them. This heat serves as a major source of warmth to the bats and the rodents especially during cold seasons or winter.
Barrels have vertical entry points. This is what attracts bats, as they prefer vertical entry and exit to horizontal one.
Many entry points barrel roofs have many spaces between them that make entry points for bats and rodents.
