Important Information About a Bat in the House

Has the bat come in contact with you are anyone in the Home? If so you need to assume the bat has rabies, even though the chances are unlikely. Young children, heavy sleepers or intoxicated adults may not know they have been bitten, due to the fact bat bites are very small and may not be detected. Here's a few questions to consider, and if any are true it is recommended to seek medical help. 
  • Was the bat found in a room where someone was sleeping? 
  • Are there young children of the age where they can not communicate?
  • Did your dog or cat come in contact with the bat?
At this point if any of these happen it is important to capture the bat and have it tested for rabies. Most local health departments will take in the bat if it is captured and secured. If anyone has been in contact with the bat it is important you seek medical attention and receive rabies shot.

In order to capture the bat it is important to keep an eye on it. Eventually it will tire out an land somewhere. Usually a wall, curtain or soft material it can cling onto. Once the bat tires out follow these guidelines, use the image and Youtube video below as a reference. 

Place a box or a can over the roosting bat. Once secured take a thick piece of paper or preferably cardboard and slide it between the wall and the bat. The bat will be scooped into the box. At this point you may either want to keep this bat secured in the box to have it tested for rabies or walk the bat outside and release it by removing the paper or cardboard. We recommend testing it if possible.  

Why is There is a Bat in My House?

  1. Most likely there is a colony of roosting bats somewhere in your house. Bat's in Michigan are cavity dwellers and live in attics and walls. Bats enter along the roof line and vents into the attic. Bat's may also roost in chimneys. From here bats will lose their way into your home. This is often the first sign you have a bat infestation. 
  2. Bats that were excluded from your home at one time, will try to get back in anyway they can from time to time. Any open doors, windows, or new construction gaps, bats will find it. This was once their home to and they want back in!
  3. Not common, but sometimes a bat will follow you into the home through open doors. Most people believe a bat ended up in the home because they left the front door open. This is a very rare occurrence.
You can identify a colony of bats in the home a few different ways. If you suspect you hear scratching in the attic and walls you may have bats. Looking in the attic for droppings in usually the tell sign there is a colony of bats. Bat droppings like like mice droppings, but a little larger. You may see a lot of bat activity flying around your home or even coming from an opening on your roof. If you suspect you have a bat colony in your home it is important to have it inspected before the colony doubles or even triples in size.
