What should I do when I find a bat in my house?
If there is contact with people (or if a child or pet or sleeping or impaired person is in the room with the bat) then the bat needs to be captured and tested for rabies. You can call the police department and speak with the Animal Control Officer during business hours. If after hours, we recommend calling a critter/pest control company. If none of the listed scenarios happened, open a window and be patient. The bat will eventually leave.
