How to safely remove a bat from your home: Do not attempt to handle a bat under any circumstances. If provoked or threatened, just like any other animal, bats will defend themselves typically by biting. In general, bats are not dangerous animals and are very beneficial to our environment, so harming or killing these animals is wrong and unnecessary.
A bat in flight in your home: Turn on some lights in order to see the bat. Close doors to other rooms of the home in order to restrict the bat's access to a small area. Open all exterior windows or doors in the room. The bat can then use its echolocation to navigate a safe path outside.
Bats roosting (resting) in your home: The best solution is to contact a wildlife damage control company. Do not attempt to exclude bats during the winter while they are hibernating; instead wait until the spring and summer when they are active. Make sure the site is clear of any hibernating bats before sealing all potential entry points into your home spaces.
