Yeah, I usually find them behind the shutters around here. Pretty much harmless. I usually leave em alone and they leave after a bit. A bit startling though.:eek:

And in alot of areas they are a protected species.
Oh and they drive really cool cars.:thumbup:

Careful, they seem to be prone to massive heart attacks or something. In the first house I rented with my wife, I caught one inside the house and when I let it go outside, it fell to the ground dead. It is also the only living creature my wife has suggested, no strongly demanded that I kill and not release. I find them in gable vents about 1-2 times a year and they usually hiss a show their teeth, and sometimes drop like a rock to the ground dead.

Dean, from what i understand...i could be wrong. That they won't fly during daytime hours and will drop like rocks if disturbed. Found a few in gable vents myself and the same, drop to the ground hissing but not dead.

going batty

I was outside scraping some trim. Took my 5 in 1 and was poking through where the caulk was old, heard a squeek. (Didn't think bat) Poked some more and figured it was a bees nest, so I sprayed some foaming bee spray in....

in about 5 seconds this HUGE bat came out with foam all over it's face and somehow flew into the trees

Despite the fact that it was a bat and possible rabid, I felt bad, that stuff might of ended up killing him, but if anything...didn't taste very good :whistling2:

Never been surprised by them on a job, but one time I was riding a bike on a bike path, this "leaf" floated down, touched my hand and flew away.
That freaked me out.

Bats in a house are always exciting... the more people there are, the more exciting it is!

I got a thrill once when I opened an electrical service panel and found a mummified squirrel. Can't find the picture, anymore, though.
