Bats keep showing up either alive or dead in various places in my house.

I do not know how they are getting in, but my house is a two-story home and it is an older home (from the 30's). I travel a lot, so I am hardly ever actually at my home and nobody else has access to it. It is so disgusting to come home to dead bats, which I'm assuming may carry disease. Bats have shown up in my home throughout the years, but never this often. In the past six months, I've found a dead one on my bed and one in the pantry and one dead in front of the refrigerator. Does this have anything to do with the fact that I got a new roof and siding a couple years ago? The contractors were not insured and I wonder if they didn't seal something up when they finally got the job completed. I cannot imagine how the bats are finding their way into my house! Would you have advice for me? I really don't know where to start, or which type of professional to contact.
