    It's true that bats eat bugs. They are, in fact, great to have around OUTSIDE. But that changes when the bat gets inside. Bats are not good to have inside the house.

    Bats carry rabbies. They can pass it by touch and bites, but they can also pass rabbies through the air. They do that when they urinate in flight and the urine is splashed around by thir wings (I know it's gross, but it's true.)

    Don't get near them! You nead to call somebody trained to deal with them and see your doctor. If you have slept in a room with bats, there is a chance you were bitten in your sleep and you may need rabbies treatment. Please go to your doctor or the local emergency department for more information.

    Bats are great to have around-they eat a lot of bugs.
