Cleveland Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month: Should I relocate a bat?

Relocating a bat is almost nearly impossible. First of all, to relocate a bat, you would have to catch it, which is almost always illegal, depending where you live. Trapping a bat is also a very tricky situation. You can cause severe and detrimental harm to the animal while doing so, and maybe even to yourself in the process. There is a chance that the bat would be carrying the rabies virus and as a defensive action from being threatened by you, the bat may retaliate and bite you, causing you to contract the virus as well. Bats are also very fragile creatures so if you happen to hold it, you can easily suffocate it to death by squeezing too tightly. Cages are not suitable traps for bats because if they do not squeeze through the holes, they can damage themselves by hitting on the metal in search of a way out.

In the sheer luck that you have captured the creature, relocating them to a different area would by no means guarantee that they do not return to your home. They have their own skillset that would help them to find their way back to their roost. If there are young bats around, then you can be sure that they will return to their young. Bats live in colonies and you would never see a single bat roosting on its own. If it does, then it would either be looking for a location to have its young or it has contracted the rabies virus and is looking for a quiet spot in which to die. Either way, having the bat inside your home is not a very hygienic option but they are very helpful to your outdoor environment since they consume an insane number of insects.

What you can do though is build a bat house for the bats and then try to get them to leave and use the bat house instead. Even though most bats are nocturnal, and they tend to forage for food at night, it does not necessarily mean that they would all leave together in search of food. They sometimes leave in groups, some staying back until the others return. After you build the bat house and install it in a suitable location and wait around a few days to see if the bat would use it. If the bat accepts the home, then you can start sealing up its previous roosting area, ensuring that you first install a one-way door whereby the bat can leave but it cannot reenter. You would not want to seal the entire area if you are not completely sure that all the bats have left. This would only cause you more issues as the bats that are sealed in the area would eventually die from starvation, leaving you with a very big health hazard on your hands.

Having bats around is not a completely terrible issue. Having them living inside your home, is an issue. Be kind and build a bat house for them!
