hehe, option E run and hide ?
1/10 of 1% of wild bats have rabies. No problems there, I think they are pretty cute. I don't think it will bother you, it is probably scared hiding in a corner from you.B and C sound like good choices. Be careful, bats can also carry rabies.
hey you stole this idea from Tommy Boy! My best friend had a bat in his house on 2 seperate occasions. first time we caught the bat Tommy Boy style, second time my brother caught it with a trash can and a broom.Bats and birds are easy to catch... Get a big towel, a beach towel would be perfect. Spread it out, pretend you're a wall. Corner the creature and throw the towel over it. Grab the towel with the animal inside of course, and throw it outside.
Please don't swat it. It's more scared than you.
No bites here. Just wracked nerves. ThanksIf there is any possibility that you or your wife got bitten, any possibility at all, get to your physician or health department ASAP. If the bat was in a room where someone was sleeping, get to your physician or health department TODAY.
Let them decide if you were exposed or at risk.
In Michigan, bats are the leading source of rabies exposure.
While the risk in the US is very low, world wide, approximately 30,000 people die each year from rabies. You can write the names of everyone known to have survived rabies, on the fingers of one hand and have spare fingers. Prophylaxis works.
And, yes, I do happen to know what a course of rabies vaccination is like.
Been there, done that.
No chimney in my apartment dude.Chimney? And either way, remember that they're nocturnal. So don't sweat it till the sun goes down.
