bats in attic
Master Gardeners are trained to help educate the public about general horticulture, therefore, bat management and cleanup are outside our scope of expertise. We are unable to provide the information you request, however, it is generally known that bat droppings and bat bites may harm humans but bats are a protected species in Minnesota. If you have been bitten or suspect that you have, you need to call your healthcare provider right away. Here is the MN Department of Health webpage with links to bats/rabies information: http://www.health.state.mn.us/emergency/contacts.html
Please click on these links and contact the appropriate authorities to find out how to safely and humanely deal with your situation:
