Nope - they moved under my deck. I have a couple of support joists that are about 2 inches apart from each other. When I was doing my standard walk around the house, I noticed a bunch of droppings on the ground under the deck. (Actually, Casey smelled them first and I noticed her and walked over.) See that beam that is not painted?
|I looked up and couldn't see anything until I got the right angle to see them...I counted 20 or so bats up in that little space.|

|If you can't see them well, zoom in...|
|Kinda cute...if you like flying rodents.|
I have hung up a bat house for them nearby, and am trying some techniques to get them to move out.. it seems to be working as the day I left the house I only counted 5 still stubbornly refusing to move on. I just hope they are in the bat house and haven't found a way back into my house!
