Bat Removal: What to Do if You Find a Bat in Your House

  • When you notice there’s a bat in your house, you may start to panic. Whatever you do, try to stay calm. This will only make the situation worse and could lead to rash decisions that affect your health and safety.
  • Most importantly, do not try to get rid of the bat on your own. Refrain from trying to use a net or another method to catch the bat. Instead, call us for bat removal services as soon as possible.
  • While you wait for us to arrive, try to shut the bat in a single room to keep it isolated. For instance, if you find a bat hiding in an upstairs bathroom, make sure that the door to that room stays closed until we get there.
  • You should also not stay in the same room as the bat. If you cannot isolate the bat in a single room, consider leaving your home and waiting outside for us to get there.

We respond quickly to requests for bat removal, so you don’t have to worry about the bat staying in your home for very long. If you need help with any type of animal control in your home, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
