Now hold on there. Although many people are afraid of them, science has
revealed that bats are nothing more than vicious rodents that fly in the
dark and bite you and give you rabies. Another common misconception is
that bats are blind, which could not be further from the truth--it's just
a rumor they started so that people will feel sorry for them. 

If you have a problem with bats, your best bet is to hook up a jumbo
bug zapper, which they'll be attracted to even though they are members of
the arachnid family.
