Have you seen bats flying around your home in Providence? Have you heard squeaking and scratching noises that sound like they are coming from your attic or possibly from behind your walls? Did you smell urine on hot days this summer? If you answered yes to any of those questions, there’s a chance that you've got a bat infestation.

Bats can carry rabies. This is the case with most mammals. But did you know that bats are the most common rabies vector species in North America? That is, most of the documented cases of rabies transmission in the U.S. from approximately 1957 to 2007 were due to infection by bats. Although the number is low, it is actually higher than cases of rabies transmitted by raccoons, skunks or even dogs.
