Ah, the bats are coming in for a landing!
I don't think of bats in the context of a frightening flying creature to run and hide from.To me they are a big part of pest control on the farm. Do you know they eat thousands of mosquitos in a very short period of time. They like their own space up very high, so bat houses should be as common as bird houses. They are like any other wild bird or animal, they may carry some form of mites or disease, so never ever try catching one.
Now it is getting close to the spookiest night of the year, so watch out for the little black visitors . perched on your pumpkins and in your hay-stacks. More than likely they are the friendly sort, just flying in for a closer look!
I know a lot of you do the "Trick-or-Treat" so please be very careful, take heed of all the pre-cautions and be safe.
We opted many years ago not to do the Trick-or-Treat , instead we have a back yard party, we all dress up in costume, cook chicken wings and marshmallows outside. Bob for apples and play hide&seek. Very fun in costume!
Anyone in the neighbor-hood is invited.
The only requirement is you must bring a bag of non-perishable food for the local food bank.
Enjoy your holiday, make a tradition.......pass it on.
