Haven't had this problem myself, but you should be really careful handling bats - in rare cases they can carry a deadly virus (lyssavirus). You need to be bitten/scratched to catch it, and it is very rare, but you should be careful all the same.

Oh yeah, I agree with Scrogster. Never get bitten by a bat as they carry a multitude of zoonotic viruses

a little off topic but bugger the bats, it's been a day for snakes here today, the dogs had a brown cornered this morning so i grabbed the hoe and took action to remove the pointy end, then as usual for a sunday we took the kids and dogs to the beach where we run into another brown about 6 foot long, couldn't bloody believe it :eek:

give me bats any day....

cheers

I wonder if it was a bat from singleton

Their main square is infested

It's pretty scary seeing them all hanging there in the day in all the big trees

Cheers
Yep there is thousands of the buggers there....really weird to see all these black bodies hanging from the trees. You should see when they flock at dusk !!!

Brown's should be relocated if they become residents around your home. I like to relocate them in a number of places using a long handled shovel.

I was at a reptile show with the kids last week.. the guy running it said "if you see a snake in the yard... run inside and tell mum. Whatever you do don't tell dad because he will instantly reach for the shovel and try to kill it. 80% of snakebites occur while trying to kill a snake with a shovel. Mums are more sensible and ring the wildlife people who will come and take it away".
