Bats in the House!

I appreciate the benefits of bats and don't mind them at all, unless
they are in my house. I recently moved to a home in Northern Illinois.
The area has many huge trees in which they nest during the warmer
seasons. However, they somehow manage to find their way into my
basement, and from there up into the house. I have looked everywhere -
from top to bottom - to find the location of where they are getting in.
Do you have any advise for me? I usually get three to four bats a year.
And every one is treated with respect and let safely back outside.
