Bats

Asked July 14, 2016, 9:13 AM EDT

We have not had a problem with bats until 5 days ago. All of a sudden we have a bat every night in the house. To my knowledge all holes are closed but apparently not. They act dazed not as lively as they usually are. Help? What to look for? What to do?

Individual bats occasionally enter houses, most often during summer evenings in mid-July and August. These wayward bats are usually pups that are just beginning to fly. Here is a Penn State publication on bats:
