This Was Bat Number 8, 8-8-08

This is day 8 of my family's attempt to get the bats out of our house. We put escape chutes on the outside of our house so they can get out but not back in. So instead of going through that the bats decided to go another way, into our house! So we've been using a bug catching net to scoop the little guys off our walls and even catching them in mid air. This little bugger was actually the 8th bat I was able to catch this month. I released it outside and after it jumped off the net it fell on it's back and was quite cranky. So seriously, we first saw bats 8 days ago, and this was the 8th bat I caught in that time (I went on to catch plenty more) and this one was on 8-8-08!
