    Dont get me wrong, I love them, only when they are outside.

    I found one dead bat inside the furnace on the floor and we are totally stumped how it got into the furnance.

    Our chimney is about a good two foot away in exhaust pipe. The furnance is in the basement. We have two main floor cold air intake and all the heat/cooling comes from our vents on the main floor.

    The chimney has a cover and mesh so how in the world did this bat come inside of the furnance????????????

    One time a few years ago, we had a flying bat coming in from the basement into the main floor that we caught and let loose outside.

    We checked under the eaves, under dormers, anything small of a crack that can be accessed to a rat we found nothing.

    Dont tell me we got bats in the chimney!!! (I know, we looked and there was nothing down there).

    I know they eat skeeters but in the house, nope and I have an indoor cat and a very curious 5 year old daughter.

    I do not kill bats, they serve their purpose out there but not IN the house.

    Only needs a tiny crack in the ductwork. A smallish bat can probably get in through the heat registers, if it managed to get in the house. We have bats that live underneath a fascia board under our eaves, in a space about 3/8" wide.
