ATLANTA -- Friday's wet weather wasn't ideal for climbing ladders. But Richard Wallace and his team had no choice. Bats have invaded a Buckhead home.
"It's something that needs to be addressed immediately," said Wallace with Urban Wildlife Control.
A colony of at least 40 bats is living in the attic. Which means it's only a matter of time before they invade the rest of the house.
Georgia law states that the bats can't be killed. Instead they have to be removed.
As Richard shows 11Alive's Ryan Kruger, the process is pretty low tech but it can be dangerous.
"It can be done by the homeowner if they're willing to take the risk. Rabies shots are about $5,000," Wallace said.
He would know. In his 14 years in the industry, Wallace has had the series of rabies shots three different times.
