My grandma always said "...They'll land in your hair and build a nest. Stay away from them..."
I agree with avoiding them. The nest, not so much.
Here is a great page about Kentucky's bats:
He didn’t much appreciate me waking him but I wasn’t going to just leave him on the wall. I got him in little cage. He just wanted to go back to sleep.
When a bat wakes up during dormancy, it burns calories that it can't replenish. Try to keep the cage as nearest to the place where it originally roosted. I hope everything works out in the best interests of all involved!
Last bat got in my house I threw a bath towel over him and turned him loose outside. Course that was in the summer time. Maybe put him in another room and close the door, when it gets dark he'll probably start flying around, when that happens I knock'em down with the towel then cover him with the towel. No way would my wife let it stay in the house!
I caught it last night. Put it in a cage. Contacted F&W. He said it was a silver haired bat. Not real common to be wintering here. He wanted to know what county. And gave me a list of rehabilitators in KY. I contacted one and am dropping it off with her tonight.
Well done sir! You contributed an important piece of data to science and helped bolster the population!
That's good news Nock. Was afraid he might wind up on Barney's cheap eating thread. Lol
He's a lucky bat.
He Better stay away from me.
It might not end well for him.
I'm all about helping little critters, that's one houseguest that would be evicted
You've got a bat. Now all you need is a ball and glove.
Well I see em flying every night outside at dusk at my house no matter what the temps are. i thought it was crazy but they are mammals, gotta eat! I saw toss him out the door!
Check out I believe 10 year old boy in Florida who died of rabies after being scratched by one
Yes, the father didn't take the child to get treatment because the kid was afraid of needles. Rabies vaccinations are a series of injections that are similar to flu shots, no big deal anymore.
My grandfather was born in Italy in 1880. He told stories about seeing rabid people chained or caged in the streets when he was a boy.
