Who gets the bats in your house when you have one visit? You or Your DH/SO??

My ex-husband was scared to death of bats. It was hilarious to see him screaming under a blanket! But I don't have to get the bats anymore, my SO gets them just fine.

  • My husband got one out of the house once, catching under a kitchen colander by the front door and putting it outside. It took time but it was hilarious as the cat saw it first and he had a lot of competition from puss as she wanted that bat so bad. . And she was far more nimble and determined than he was even though he triumphed in the end.

  • I've never had a bat in a house before. I would have to think my hubby would get it because he chases all the stuff out of our house for me. Stinks bugs, wolf spiders, and even daddy long legs don't stand a chance if I see them because I annoy him so bad to get it out of the house - dead or alive - I don't care as long as I don't have to see it anymore.

  • I guess I am not from that part of the country... how in the world would you regularly get a bat in the house?

    Do you need better windows/doors?

  • Hmmmm I don't know. We do not have bats where we live but for some reason I think it will be me.

  • I have honestly never had a bat in my house. But I am sure it would be my job, I would never allow my DH to handle something like that...

  • My husband is just like your ex, such a baby...but I would be too. lol. We havent had it happen, but if it did I think he would man up and do it. If not, we live in an apartment and thats what maintnance men are for. Haha

  • Never seen a live bat. But definitely if it happened, dh would be the one! We had a mouse in our old apt that was trapped in the wall and thank God out lease was up a few weeks later because I couldn't sleep at night!!!!! Dh kept telling me it could eat through and come into the house or have babies in there!!!!!
