    Q561: I have got a bat in my house, what should I do?

    A bat that is in your house will have got in there by mistake. Do not handle a flying bat, you could injure yourself or the bat. If you have to handle a bat be careful and always wear gloves.

    • close the door to the room
    • dim the lights
    • open all windows

    This will give the bat a chance to find it's own way out of the room.
