One morning there was a dead bat in our pool. A few nights later my husband was netting the pool out while one was swooping down catching bugs. It hit the water and was unable to recover flight. Gary lifted it with the net and the second it was free of the water it took off. I guess that one warned the others because we've had no more bats in the pool. ~ Flying Fox | BATs - Mega and Micro
