Absolutely agree with Nutcutlet, Dyers End and Muddle Up ... bats live in chalk caves just across the road from here, it's an SSSI, we love to see them swooping around our house and garden in the evenings catching insects - we are thrilled that there are enough insects in this area to support such a large colony of bats and we garden to encourage a wide range of wildlife which forms a rich and diverse food chain.
And don't forget - a large proportion of the insects hoovered up by the bats are gnats and mosquitoes - although we have a wildlife pond in the garden and marshes close by I've not been bitten by a mozzie since we've lived here.
Bats are a definite plus in my opinion and well worth a little inconvenience..
