Steps To Remove a Bat From Your Home

Steps To Remove a Bat From Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Bats play a critical role in nature, helping with insects, seed dispersal, and pollination.

    However, most people don't want one of these flying rodents dropping by for a visit.


Unfortunately, not only have bats been known to fly into homes through open doors and windows, but they can also work their way into a house through tiny openings in siding, attic vents, chimneys, and roof soffits.

Luckily, if you find yourself with visiting bats, there are steps you can take to remove them.

Stay Calm

Seeing a bat in your home may be upsetting, but you are better off staying quiet and calm. Avoid screaming or chasing the bat around the house because if the bat becomes excited or afraid, it will be that much harder to catch.

Remove Pets

Similarly, a barking dog will not make the situation any easier. Close pets off in a separate room to keep them safe and avoid additional chaos.

Trap the Bat

If the bat has chosen a spot to land or hang, you should quickly and quietly attempt to set a container over the bat and slide a solid piece of cardboard underneath the container. This provides you with a closed container that allows you to carry the bat outside for release.

Call a Professional

If you are unable to safely remove the bat by yourself, or if you are nervous to handle the situation alone, don’t hesitate to contact a bat removal CT professional to help. This type of exterminator CT has the necessary equipment and experience to remove the bat quickly and efficiently.
