Send them to me. I live in the desert and we have very few bats, if any. They were practically giving away bat houses at Home Depot and I got the last 2. Some lady said "oh my gosh, ick, bats?" I said, "you bet." I hung both on the east side of my house, near the roof, and for 10 years have waited to find some bat drippings. No such luck. Bats are great for eating any and all kinds of bugs in your yard, including cockroaches, red ants, spiders and anything that flys. If I were you I would buy or build a home for them, and follow my directions. Most bats will not hurt or come near you. They are very timid creatures. I would rather have bats in my belfry then scorpions and roaches biting my kids.
