Bat Rabies

Bats are carriers of bat rabies and are a well-known rabies vector species. If someone sleeps in a room with a bat, they should consider reporting the incident to the local county health department. There is no way to know if a bat bit someone while sleeping because their teeth are tiny, and their bite is probably not even noticed. If you do not get treatment in 3 days, you may never outlive this horrible disease that can kill in 10 days to 2 weeks without immediate treatment.

How To Remove A Bat From A Room Video Alternative – 7 Steps To Removing A Bat From A Room

  1. Stay Calm and Protect Yourself: First, protect yourself by wearing gloves and long sleeves to minimize the risk of bites or scratches. Although rare, bats can carry diseases like rabies.
  2. Confine the Bat: Close all interior doors and open windows and exterior doors in the room where the bat is located. The bat may sense the fresh air and fly out on its own.
  3. Turn Off the Lights: Bats use echolocation to navigate, but they can also use visual cues. Dimming the lights can reduce stress on the bat and possibly make it less erratic.
  4. Encourage the Bat to Leave: If the bat doesn’t exit on its own, you can gently guide it towards an exit with a soft broom or a piece of cardboard, being careful not to touch or harm the bat.
  5. Use a Container to Trap the Bat: If the bat lands and doesn’t fly out, you can cover it gently with a box or a large container. Slide a piece of cardboard under the container to trap the bat inside and then carefully carry it outside to release it.
  6. Avoid Direct Contact: Never try to catch the bat with your hands, even if you are wearing gloves.
  7. Secure the Room Afterward: After the bat has left, secure any openings through which the bat might have entered to prevent future visits.

This method ensures that you handle the situation in a humane and safe manner, respecting wildlife while keeping yourself safe.
