Re: Dead bat in cabin?
One bat coming down the stove pipe isn't that bad, try hundreds! years ago in our first house, our boxer woke us up barking at what my wife (God bless her soul, and grant her peace) thought was a bird. As I looked and informed her
that it wasn't a bird but a bat, she screamed and hid under the covers, along with our brave boxer. Soon it was more than one, I carried her outside to the porch swing wrapped in all the bedding, thank goodness it was mid summer! The bats came down the chimney and out the warm morning stove, they started flying all over the house and into the ceiling fans and then smack, splat onto the white paneled walls leaving soot outlines all over. I held the front door open and a few made it out on their own. The rest I removed once they landed with the use of a towel( so as not to get bit).
Or at least as many as I could see. Days later a few stragglers could be heard behind the paneling and in some other vey very small spaces. After about 2 weeks and over 150 bats later(I quit counting) the bats had taken up residence outdoors in one of our hollowed out trees, leaving only a few bat sooted imprints on the walls. So after that experience I would say finding ONE DEAD bat ain't so bad.
