    i would not want those around... especially since i have a kidd-o. don't they carry diseases? better safe than sorry even though i have a feeling that we're more of a threat than the bat is to us.

    Once I found a bat in a wastebasket at a ranch where I vacation every year - it had somehow flown into the office and couldn't climb out of the basket because the sides were too smooth. I'd always had an indifferent attitude towards bats until I handled one up close, but they're super cute. They make funny squeaky noises and when they walk on all fours they look like mice wearing flippers. Still, not super sanitary or good to have nesting in or on the house... you should probably seal up the openings around your roof as a precaution. If you like having them around (they can be very beneficial) you can build a spacious bat box for about $10 and hang it somewhere on the property.

    I have seen bat boxes at lowes before.We have plenty of them flying around here in the summer.Throw a rock up in the air when you see some flying and they will chase it,heck me and my son were out in the yard throwing a baseball and they would chase it.They are neat critters.
