I empathize with your bat situation. I also get bat visitors several times a year. [Photo of one such visitor here.]Like yours, my bat schema involves putting on clothing before anything else. I also have a pair of thick winter work gloves for dealing with them. I used to go with the opening a window and trying to guide them outside, but the last six bats wouldn't go for that option. So I've been capturing them in various ways. A mid-air grab with a big sack is the most dramatic, but I really don't like it when they bump my head while flying past.My grade 13 biology teacher said that their built-in sonar would prevent them from touching you, but he was misinformed.Just now by following a link on Mag Ruffman's blog I came across instructions on making a bat house. Maybe this would be the way for us to go.
