Bats in the Summertime

In the summertime during hot weather, homeowners may discover bats residing in their home! Attics are the most common portion of a house in which bats roost and raise their young.

After a few hot summer days, an attic may become too warm for the bats, forcing them out and sometimes into people's living quarters as they search for cooler places to roost.

If you or anyone in your home has had direct contact with a bat, or if a bat is found in a room with a sleeping person, the bat should be safely captured but not released. WMNR can help catch and remove the bat.

Contact local health officials for assistance in evaluating potential rabies risk and submitting the bat to the Department of Public Health for rabies testing.

WMNR provides safe and effective bat exclusion methods, which are approved for evicting bats from your home.
