    It's like your own little zoo in your living room. Bet the little guy doesn't stick around when the mornings get chilly.

    Hey, you caught a flappy.

    Flappies belong outdoors eating 'squitos.

    after suiting up, I lucked out with batsy falling down into the ash pan. I slowly slid it out and covered it with a towel. Carried it to the back porch, removed the towel, and off he went to scare future generations of Wayne children.

    Hello
    Not so crazy since bats can get thru a hole the size of a dime! One easy solution is to open door and drop in a couple of moth balls and he will find his way out and not come back!

    Better than an European starling dive bombing into your exhaust fan while running...
