Default Bat removal

Has anyone ever had to remove a bat (or several for that matter)? I just got a call that there'* a bat in my rental house.. Who knows, there could be multiple.

I have heard a tennis racket works because it is harder for them to detect coming at them but thatí* not the nice way to remove them. I would try a fishing net. But if they are getting in and hanging out you will have to seal up however they are getting in or I'd imagine they will just come back.

I can understand your tenants might be freaked out, but bats are actuslly very beneficial, the North American ones anyways. You get some of them southern hemisphere freaks and who knows...

As pointed out earlier, check out the Bat Conservation site. Please don't kill it unless neccessary....

There'* also http://www.batcon.org/home/index.asp?idPage=51 I used to be a member, and need to join again dangit...

I have no interest in killing them. I want to do this humanely. Plus, they're in the attic. The attic is technically not living space...storage at best. But, I can understand how they'd be a nusance.

I don't think I'll be going at this "Great Outdoors style". I'll go over there one night, after dark and wait for them to leave to feed. Once gone, I'll seal up the hole. After my initial post, I an idea popped in my head with where they might be coming in from.

I've used that stuff as body filler on a couple of really rusty trucks. Make a form out of tape (covering the hole) fill it with foam, and sand to shape. Plan to cover with fiberglass and never get around to it....
