On to today's topic! Did you see our biped friend Tierre's blog yesterday? He posted about a couple in upstate New York who found 3,500 pounds of bat guano and dead bats in their attic. Wowzers! I told Tierre we have a bat friend here!
We have two decks on the back of our house. Our bat friend hangs out (ha roo roo roo) on the under-side of the upper deck. He leaves some of his "guano" on the lower deck ... quite possibly making it a ... yes, Amber, I'll say it ... a poop deck. Ha roo roo roo. Here's our deck set up:
And here's a shot of our friend - we've named him Bart.
That picture is from last year. Can you see him in there? He's hanging upside down, like bats like to do. I highlighted his hiding place. Hi, Bart! We haven't seen him this year yet ... but we've seen his ... calling card, let's say. You know what I mean. Remember, this is a family-friendly blog.
We call him our friend because the "average" brown bat can eat 1,200 mosquito-sized insects per hour. Bart is a flying bug whacker! And you know how I feel about bugs! He's a real handy guy to have hanging around.
