A bat flew into our house. What does this mean?

What does it mean when a bat flies into your house?

The first thing you need to know is that bats aren’t rabid and don’t carry rabies. But they are wild animals and can carry other diseases, so it’s important to make sure they leave quickly.

Bats are mammals, just like dogs and cats. Bats live in colonies of up to 150 individuals and can live for more than 30 years. They will eat insects, fruit, nectar and sometimes small animals such as frogs or even mice.

Bats are nocturnal creatures who sleep during the day in crevices or caves, emerging at night for food and drink (they have very good eyesight). They hang upside down from their feet by their claws while sleeping and usually do not fly until dusk when they come out of their roosts to feed on insects.

Bats are generally not aggressive unless they feel threatened or cornered — at which point they may bite or scratch people with sharp teeth and claws. However, most people will never be bitten by a bat because bats rarely enter homes except in cases of severe weather conditions or other emergencies when they seek shelter indoors.
