Getting rid of a bat

Does anyone has a suggestion on how to get rid of a bat? I did call 311 at 6:30 this morning and opened a ticket, however, it looks like they aren't coming out.

I've left the window open and even played bat calls from the alley to get it out, however no luck. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, Thanks.

    Over the years we have had various unwanted animals invade our home. We had a Blue Jay fall down the chimney one time & had a bat on two different occasions. If you are a animal lover don't read any further. As for the Blue Jay, we threw a blanket on it & carried outside & gave it a shake. It flew away. As for the bats, we had called animal control & they advised us to "get a tennis racket. Our son threw a blanket on it & tossed it outside.

    I hear that running around screaming with a tennis racquet is effective. I saw it on Jeff Corwin, I think.
