    What you may want to do is to go to Tractor Supply and buy a couple of bat boxes to install around the yard, prior to evicting them from your house. Having bats around is good and, considering that their populations aren't doing so well as a whole (possibly due to neonicotinoid pesticide use), that providing a refuge to the few that do show up is a simple, inexpensive, yet valuable thing to do.

    I'd love to see bats around my house again. Haven't seen any in years.

    If they're living there, they're going to go back in but if they were a straggler that came down the chimney, probably not. But what's that have to do with catching them in a net?

    I don't look great in fishnets. Unless there's a killer pair of heels.

    S. S. S.

    Or you can try saying "You naughty bat. Please fly somewhere else and please don't come back in my house and give my family rabies".

    I like bats......just not flying around in my living room.

    I wish we had made a video. Back in the 90's my wife and I lived in the Virgin Islands. After a few months there, we would get fruit bats that would come into our home every night as the sun started to go down. Scared the shit out of my wife. Our home was two level, upstairs one giant open floor plan and bedrooms downstairs. The main floor also had soaring peaked ceiling. The bats, usually 3 or 4 would come in and just fly around the room. I would stand on a bar stool, grab a tennis racket and watch their pattern. Then, one by one I'd smack them down as they repeated their flight pattern like serving a tennis ball! After a few nights, and having a pest expert come over at night, we discovered they were coming in from behind our kitchen cabinets that had pulled away slightly from the wall.
    Sorry, no help I know, but cracked me up when I saw your post remembering our adventures. And being in the Caribbean, there was no worries about "save the bats" or anything, it was just kill the bastards and fix the issue.
    Good luck!
