How concerned should I be about bats using this area (the pick) of a metal roof which is laid over an old roof?

If there is a gap, they will find it.

Some good roofers put the foam inserts into the void areas, others do not.You need to inspect each vented side by crawling across the ridge and examining them individually very well to determine the possibility of access and do a watch to determine any exiting of the bats from these areas.

Cobra vent pieces cut to size will seal these open vented areas nicely then sealed into position with some silicone.You also need to inspect the end runs also on the rake sides to see if these ends are sealed.

If it was recently roofed, I'd ask the roofer for pcs to replace the missing and go from there.

It worked for me!

I do roofing for a living and there should of been foam inserts put in the whole length of the ridge cap. Also has to have it in the ends of the runs or critters will find away in. I would ask the contractor to come back out and fix the problem
