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.
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:
