So far when I have pulled bats out of bedrooms etc. and sent them in for rabies testing I have not found any positives. Wondering what others have found?

None that I have ever had tested have come back positive. A friend in Cobleskill woke up with one in his bedroom, had it tested, and ended up getting shots after it tested positive. I have heard of others testing positive at the company I previously worked for.

Funny story, years ago Jake brought 1 in for testing and the lab guy rejected it because it was alive. Jake walked out to his truck and then returned a couple minutes later. The lab guy have him a horrified look when accepting it. It was the lab guys rules, lol.

0 for me. I don't know how many I've sent over 23 years. I've had a few customers that had positives before I got involved.

No bats with rabies, but I'm getting a lot of rats with babies!

I got the 4 rabies shots from a Raccoon. Now I don't worry about it.


Just a weekend trapper...
