Bats

hanging in gable vents on homes or businesses.

night. Bats are federally protected animals since they are
such a benefit in controlling insect populations.

People have been brought up to believe that bats are blind,
but in truth they can see but not well. Since there vision
is low, bats use echolocation (produces ultrasonic sounds
threw mouth or nose) to locate food or navigate.

Though bats hanging in a gable vent on the front side of the
wire seems safe, if left alone for years the guano build up
can be harmful as well as eat threw the wire and allow
entry into the attic and living space.
