The Critter Control offices have answered lots of calls this week about bats in the living area of home. With the heat the that a lot of the areas of the United States is having, bats are even looking for a break from the heat. Critter Control recommends that you do not harm the bat. Please note the example here for catching a bat. Once caught, we recommends that you call your local health department to see if they want the bat for testing. Call 1-800-CRITTER for your local Cirtter Control office to talk with a bat exculsion specialist for help with your wildlife problem.
