Damm thing is huge. Has to be the biggest bat I've ever seen. Bats usually reside in my shed during the spring/early summertime but never have seen one this big. Sad side to this story is that the bat will need to be destroyed and tested for rabies. Since there's no telling how long it's been in the house, and the fact it's been in our living areas, if it turns out to be rabid we will all need to be vaccinated and our pets reimmunized, even though their shots are current.

A couple of months ago I was awakened by my dog going crazy with barking in the kitchen.

Turns out a large blackbird had somehow got into the house.

I used a broom to usher the bird through the rooms of the house and then out the front door.

One night my daughter Leigh was yelling from the upstairs bedroom, Pop, there's something flying around my room.I thought to myself, yea , ok.She had a habit of exaggerating sometimes. I didn't really think too much of it.I walk upstairs, turned on the light, she is under the covers, yelling get it out, get it out ! There was a bat flying arond her room ! I went downstairs, got a bath towel and gently caught the bat in the towel. I took it outside and released it. It flew away. I went back in the house, she is there saying, I told you something was flying around ! I'll never forget that night.

Bats live in our loft in the summer,never caused me any problems and as they are protected in the UK not much I can do about it anyway.

I have bats in my belfry, but don't pay much attention. This could have been a Brucebcd thread you know.

I live in CT, and a few months back my daughter told me we had a bat in the kitchen. Of course, I dismissed her and told her she was crazy...until I went into the kitchen and saw a friggin' bat above the kitchen sink!! Then I screamed like a school girl. It was about the size of a mouse. Then we got a towel, threw it over the bat and chucked it outside. It flew away. I have no idea how it got in the house. I think they are like mice where they can get through tiny cracks.

Well if it makes you feel any better ... the bat probably ain't liking it either.

Tennis racket works the best. Their radar doesn't pick up the strings.

Boing!

Dealt with a good number of these SOB's myself, unfortunatley had to send most of them to meet their maker, didn't really want to kill 'em but sometimes You gotta do what You gotta. Got only 1 of about 10 to leave on its own free will, haven't had any in the house since I got it roofed and sided in '96. My old neighbor a WW2 vet caught one and kept it alive in a fine mesh bird cage, FREAKY !!!.............Peace.........joe

Never mind the belfry, what the hell kind of a bat is a “friggin’ bat”. I have heard of vampire bats, fruit bats, etc. However, I have never heard of a “friggin’ bat”. Do they just fly around “frigging” all day/night?

It was a silver-haired bat. Exterminator guessed it had a wing span of 10"-12". They are not very common arond here, the brown bat, which is relatively small is the most common in these parts. He said he only sees about 12 a year. The guy walked up to it, grabbed it with his gloved hand and placed it into a tupperware like it was nothing. Of course, he's not worried because he has all vaccines. Thing looked downright vicious trapped in that tupperware. Would have preferred to release it, but since it was in the house he couldn't urge strongly enough to have it tested. Plus, the State encourages it. Expect the test results tomorrow.

A "friggin' bat" is the type that makes my daughter scream hysterically while almost killing herself running down the stairs to tell me about it. "Friggin'" is a generic term that would cover most rodent species. Snakes also. I've also heard it used to describe mother-in-laws, ex-wives, girlfriends and the like.

This was brought up and the exterminator said this was probably one of the worst things you could do. If it's rabid, a shot with a tennis racket could cause a spray of saliva that if it contacted any part of your mucous membranes could infect you. Plus, a tennis racket strike would probably destroy the bat to the point to where it wouldn't be able to be tested.

LOL!! That is exactly how a friend of mine took care of his bat in the house problem. It was a rather small bat and took only one good forehand swing. Actually felt bad for it after it bounced off the wall at warp speed but what can you do. When it first entered and was flying around us three grown men were running around and yelling like little girls!
