I remember bats always flying around catching things at dusk in Kentucky as a child. I don't hardly ever see bats these days, not in Kentucky or in Mississippi or most others places I've lived. Sad how something like that can quietly go out of your life and you barely notice till you look and realize how much and how quickly something’s change. I've read where bats are far better at ridding communities of mosquitoes than spaying the air in front of my porch.
