Bats build nests in walls, behind the chimney, along the roof-line and in the attic. When not in flight, bats hide in small places in a house. This can often include any area large enough for the bat to fit.
Bats in the house are often disoriented and looking for a way out of the house. When a bat is located in the home, it is essential to ensure that the animal has not come into contact with a person, as bats can carry rabies.
Bats are not generally considered aggressive, but can bite if they feel threatened. However, due to their very small teeth, they cannot typically bite through leather gloves or denim jeans.
