The Morning After

We had no more bats in the house last night after we went to bed - two was two too many. At times I felt like we were under siege. The bats were trying to get in by flying at the windows. We could see and hear them trying to get in along the roof where Tony put the newspaper.

They managed to pull out some of it but we can't hear them upstairs under this point of the roof so fingers crossed that they moved somewhere else. Hopefully, to an entirely new address and not just somewhere else at our house.

One of the two bats that did get in the house is laying dead (as a warning to other bats) in the road in front of our house.

We didn't intentionally try to harm him. I was standing on the front porch holding the door open and Tony was trying to herd him toward the open door, but he wouldn't fly out! Tony had to catch him in the net and he didn't survive the experience. I don't mind having them in the area because they eat mosquitoes, but the living room is a bit too close for comfort!

Wow. I can't believe they were trying to beat your door down. I don't blame you for having the heebie jeebies about it!
