What should I do if I find a bat in my home?

Uh-Oh, a Bat Inside? Here's What You Should Do

Finding a bat indoors might surprise you, but it's not uncommon. Here's what to do:

Stay Calm: Bats are probably more scared of you than you are of them. They're just looking for a way back outside.

Give It Space: If you see a bat, don't freak out. Just open a window or door and give it a clear path to freedom.

Use a Container: If the bat isn't heading out on its own, grab a box or container and gently trap it. Slide some cardboard under the container to scoop it up.

Time to Reach Out: Now, if you can't shoo the bat out or you're just not comfortable, that's totally fine. Call a wildlife pro like us at Wildlife Control Pros in Northwest Michigan. We've got the know-how to safely handle the situation.

Fun Fact: Bats are nature's nighttime bug hunters. They can munch on thousands of insects every night!

When Bats Drop By: Bats can pop up indoors any time, but they might be more active in late summer and early fall. That's when their young ones are learning to fly.
