We recently did an emergency bat removal in Westchester County, New York. We often get calls to remove bats flying around inside homes and businesses. It is important that the homeowner is aware of the dangers of bats in the house. This bat was removed and brought to the Westchester dept of health for Rabies testing. It came back positive for rabies!
When you get bats in the house, it is very possible that the bat flying near your head has rabies. Call the professionals at Intrepid Wildlife Services when you have a bat in the house, for your own safety.
