BATS IN MY HOUSE

Bats have been known to enter properties, this usually happens when the bat has been chasing prey through an open window, if you discover a bat in your property open the window turn off any lights and close the door. If the bat is active it will find its own way out. If the bat is inactive (possibly dehydrated or injured) when found assuming it’s not dead, using gloves carefully pick it up and place in a ventilated box and leave in a dark place. Around sunset place the open box on an elevated platform to avoid attention from cats and the bat should leave of its own accord.
