Mating Season Delays Repairs to Bat-Infested House

Posted July 25, 2007

— A landlord in Wilson may have to wait a little while longer to make repairs at a bat-infested home.

Angela Moore said bats forced her and her family to move out of their rented home.

The city declared the house unlivable and ordered the landlord to seal holes in the roof, but he cannot fix it until mid-August because of bat-mating season.

    Awwwww shucks. They are just going to the bat room. May Zeus and Athena bless these critters and chase them away. No fake praying to a man made god needed.

    "Screw the rodents..."

    Uh, that's what the bats are doing. That's the problem to begin with.

    YUCK I hate bats...when they come out - I go in.

    I thought they carry rabies...so why not destroy them???

    Sorry everybody. I was using my buddies to convert this home into my secret location in Wilson.

    Bats eat mosquitoes which eat me up. If they will do that for me, I will pipe in "Let's Get It On" until mating season is over. :))
