Why should I wear gloves to handle bats?

While serious incidents involving bats are not common, the risk of contracting rabies when handling a bat is still a possibility and one you should aim to protect yourself against. Diseases aside, bites and scratches are also a general risk that you should guard against when handling any type of wild animal. It is highly advised that you wear gloves if you intend to be in direct contact with a bat, especially if the creature is wounded or in a distressed state.

How Do I Use Bat Handling Gloves?

It may seem like an obvious question, but it is recommended to wear different types of gloves depending on your bat-based task. For examination it is advised that you wear a thicker glove on one hand and a thinner glove on the other, both for your own dexterity and comfort and to ensure more sensitive handling of the animal. Where you must administer first aid it is recommended that you also wear medical gloves beneath your thicker protective glove. 

Smaller bats or particularly docile ones can usually be handled with a thin leather leather glove, while larger or distressed animals should be treated with a more cautious approach and only when wearing a thicker glove such as these Supertouch Riggers.

As the UK Bat Conservation Trust says, there really is no hard and fast rule when it comes to stopping bat bites, ultimately it comes down to personal conduct and preference in both animal handling and PPE. With these durable riggers, though, you can at least be certain that you are giving yourself the best protection as you try to protect Britain's bats.

Sizing of Bat Handling Gloves

Due to the larger, loose design of these gloves, they are provided in a universal size that should be suitable for most users.
