Bats in your Belfry?
Ronna Woudstra, bat coordinator for the local non-profit Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT.BC.CA; 250-995-2428), reminds us that baby bats are now learning to fly and may take a while to get the hang of it. She cautions against harming bats or trapping them. By mid-September they will leave your home to hibernate as the weather gets cooler. She advises waiting until then, if you can, to undertake projects such as installing one-way doors or sealing up your house.
