Bats in camp

Just wondering if anybody has some info about removing bats from a camp. If anybody knows of someone in the area of Benezitt who does this would be great.

Re: Bats in camp

Don't listen to the nonsense above. Put up a bat house on a pole near the cabin, ten find out where the bats are comming in and seal it up at night when the bats are out flying, they should gravitate to the bat house and away from the cabin. Bats will keep the mosquito population down for you. You don't want to go useing them for tennis practice, bats are a protected species and killing should be a last resort.

Especially now, with White Nose Syndrome. You may be killing the last bats in your area.

Re: Bats in camp


I hate bats! Those flying rodents are about the only thing that really creep me out. If one ever landed on me that would be the end of my existance. I would die of a heart attack! However, I would never intentionally kill one.

My sister called me a few years ago screaming for help because she had a bat in her house. I told her "sorry sis you're on your own!" Anything but a bat and I'd have gone and gotten it out of her house. Bear, lion, rhino, etc., etc... NO BATS!!!!


Good luck with your problem!

If you continue to do what you're doing, you'll only get what you have gotten.
