Member Comments "My roommate discovered a bat on the bathroom wall. We shut it in by itself, plugged the door with newspaper and went to bed unwashed. I called Critter Control and immediately got a nice young man who promised to come between 10 a.m. and noon. He arrived at 11 a.m. and took care of everything. Apparently, the bat was still asleep. I'm puffed with pride that we thought of leaving the lights on, but who knows why the bat kept dozing. Getting a competent and quick response was a blessing."
