Bats

Bats are beneficial mammals. They eat insects, pollinate plants and are an important part of the natural environment. Occasionally bats and humans come into conflict when bats choose to live in and around human homes. Bats can be infected with rabies and should never be touched.

**If you think that you or someone in your care has been bitten by a bat or been in contact with a bat, call the Maine Center for Disease Control (CDC) immediately at 800-821-5821.**
