I Need My Bat Bat!

So... last night I am sound asleep about one AM, when my son rushes into my room babbling that there is a flying rodent downstairs... in other words, a bat has somehow managed to get into the house.

*sigh*

It is an old house, this usually happens at least once a summer, although it has actually been a few since the last time. For some reason, I am the resident Bat patrol. I used to use a giant yellow plastic shuffle bat, nowadays I just use a broom, with which I can usually give it a good smack mid-air, and then clamp a box or coffee can over it, and take it outside. I don't kill them, but I probably give them quite the headache.

Except... last night, I was only able to graze the little bigger a few times... and then he or she UPS and DISAPPEARS! So... as of this morning I am very cautiously... poking around, and still haven't found it. I am reading the newspaper and my tablet, rather expecting it to come swooping down any minute. I really need a super... or even not-so-super hero right about now.

Did you turn your back on it for a moment before it disappeared? I've heard bats like to pull the old disappearing act when people aren't looking.

My friend from Vermont has this problem sometimes. Instead of going for the bat-bat, she says the best thing to do is turn out the lights in the room where it is and open a window or door. They can sense the air flow.

They do seem to appear and disappear like magic!

Turning off the lights and opening the doors is a tactic I have not tried... and now I will! Thank you!
