This is the time of year when the bat population booms in our area.  And many of those bats are looking for a warm place to spend the night.

Maybe your place, says Mark Langan of the Nebraska Humane Society.  He says if you encounter a bat, isolate it, and call  the Humane Society.

“If you have been bitten or exposed to saliva, call your doctor,” Langan said. “We are concerned that some people may be exposed while they are asleep and not know about it.”
