  • Throw a coat or blanket on it and then take it outside.

    Bats are very useful to have around, they eat lots of bugs. But I certainly wouldn't want one in my home. Hope you get it out soon!

  • open a window and guide it out with a broom. be sure to clean anything it touches and anything it poos on, they carry a lot of germs!

  • Call the police, they will know what to do. (They will probably call animal control).

  • Open a window, try to let it fly out. Get your kids into another room away from it! Honestly, my mom used to smack them with a broom, done. I would try to be more humane but whatever you have to do.

  • did it work? all of their answers were right- either turn the lights off and it will settle - then throw a blanket over it and shake the blanket outside or turn the lights on and it will settle then the whole blanket thing - and wash everything really well! good luck!

  • I had that happen. Turned out we had a bunch in the rafters. Had to get a professional to get rid of further problems.
