We are always open. Whether it’s a weekend, a holiday, or the middle of the night, call the ABC Wildlife Hotline at 847-870-7175, and we can dispatch our team to your home immediately.

What should I do if bats enter my home?
Bats are Illinois’ most common rabies carriers. A rabid bat can transmit rabies to a sleeping person without the person knowing they were bitten.
When a bat is flying around inside your home or bedroom, call the ABC Wildlife Hotline at 847-870-7175, and we will dispatch our team to your home immediately to:
- Search for the bat and capture it in a net
- Send it for rabies testing when needed
- Inspect for a bat colony
- Humanely remove the bat colony without harming the bats
- Provide bat colony remediation and clean up any waste or contamination bats leave behind
- Seal holes through which bats can enter and prevent them from returning
