Summer Brings Insects and Bats

Do not attempt to touch or handle any bat.

Warm summer weather is here and so are insects and bats. It is important to remember that it is not acceptable for bats to be roosting in residences or public buildings. Bats are very good at getting in small cracks and crevices in homes but are very poor at exiting them.

The Illinois Dept. of Public Health has an excellent website with information about bats and how to exclude bats from a residence more information about bats and safety, see the poster here, provided by KY Department of Fish & Wildlife, Kentucky State Parks and Kentucky Department for Public Health.
