Wildlife, eh?

So yesterday, i was in my garage to grab a bucket that i needed. I looked inside and found what appeared to be a dead bat馃槙.
My gf said she had heard some screeching a few days earlier. She thought it might be a squirrel yelling at her.
Anyway, the poor thing moved. So, i ran inside, warmed a towel in the microwave, got a little cafood, put it inside the warmed towel, with the food and left it be.
I checked a bit later and it had stretched itself out and lifted its head.
It being so cold, and it's hibernation being disrupted, i didn't have high hopes.
Three hours later i checked again.
It was gone! So was the food.
I am hoping it found its way to a proper spot to hunker down till spring. Then the mosquito hunting can begin馃檪

Good for you! Maybe he'll turn your house in to an insect free area as a thank you. They're really smart animals.
Carla61-69, F
@Ynotisay they are quite intelligent. Around my home is already relatively quiet, regarding mosquitoes. Ive had a pretty large bat poplulation since ive lived here.
YnotisayM
@Carla Yeah. Really smart. I have a lot in the summer too. They're great neighbors.

Awesome for the bat and bless you for your recue.
Carla61-69, F
@WillaKissing high hopes for the little creature.
I have a pretty large poplulation that live here. Im certain they are residing in my attic. I keep promising myself i will build a bat house. Maybe this spring.
I've more than once, had to chase them from my house. It behooves me to shut the damn sliding glass door!
But let me say...i live a half mile from the river and wetland, and i have like very little problem with mosquitoes.

@Carla I own a hardwoods timber farm in Southern Ohio with a pond behind the old farmhouse I will tear down once I complete building my new one by myself. The new one is on a hill overlooking the pond and I can't wait to sit and watch the bats and purple martins flying over and skinning my pond. Bat boxes and purple martin houes are on my to add list along with a mini apple orchard once the house build is complete. Being in the foothills of the Appalachian mountain's nothing is flat, and the rainwater runs off pretty quickly. The pond is the only possible mosquito nest other that a state park lake 8 miles to my east.

@WillaKissing what a beautiful spot!
And quite the undertaking...
It's incredible the pest control skills of those critters馃檪

How fortuitous for the little guy, that it is your garage he or she ended up in. I'm pretty sure a lot of people wouldn't have been as kind and caring.

I hope along with you, that the bat will be okay.
Piper61-69, F
@Carla Sadly true, like so many other animals people are either afraid of...or just dislike or hate because they don't find them "cute".
Carla61-69, F
@Piper bats are adorable.

Look at that face...
Piper61-69, F
I think they're adorable too, @Carla, even the ones that aren't quite as cute as that. 馃槉

You offered what he needed. Hopefully bats have recall like crows and he brings his group to hunt near you.
Carla61-69, F
I believe this is home for him/her. @Graylight. See my conversation WillaKissing.
Ive seen bat rescues. Bats can become quite connected, if allowed.
I appreciate their choice of home. They are appreciated...
