About Pest Animal Arlington and Our Services:
It is illegal to kill bats in the US as the federal law protects them from being eradicated. If you do find a bat, even a colony of bats, living inside your building, you will need to find a humane way to get rid of it.
If a bat is found inside the living quarters of your home and you suspect that you have been bitten you are allowed to kill it. The reason for this is that bats are carriers of the rabies virus. In order to establish whether you need to get a rabies shot, you will need to take the bat to be tested. The same goes for your pets. It is a good idea to make sure that your pet's rabies vaccine is up to date if you live in an area with a bat problem.
The best way to remove a bat is to exclude it. This entails installing a one-way exclusion funnel around the opening that they are using. This will enable them to leave but will block them from reentry. Once you have ensured all of the bats have left you can close up all available openings. You will need to make certain that there are no babies left behind. You are not permitted to exclude bats from your home during maternity season. This will leave the pups without any source of food and will essentially be killing them. You will need to review the laws in your state before excluding bats. As there are a variety of different bat species found in the US, they also have different breeding seasons. You will need to make sure that you are not hit with a hefty fine for killing a wild animal.
If a bat flies into your home the best course of action would be to close all of the doors and windows. This may sound counter-intuitive but if you open only one door or window leading outside you can establish a route for the bat to follow. If it becomes stuck or entangled you, can use a net to help it find its way out. You can also cover the bat in a towel. Be careful not to injure it when you pick it up. You can then relocate the bat outside where it will be able to fly off on its own. Be careful not to touch the bat with your bare hands. If you are going to come into contact with it put on thick gloves to protect your hands from scratches. It is also advisable to wear protective eyewear to prevent any traces of bat feces of getting into your eyes.
Removing bats from your home is an arduous process that should not be attempted by novices. Wildlife removal specialists are trained in removing unwanted bats from your attic or roof. If you try to do it yourself you might find yourself with a house full of bats.
