My little Bat

Cleaning out my storage house in the very back of my yard, was a chore on my to-do list. It had been awhile since I have been inside and the musty smell was strong since we've had so much rain these past months. Lo and behold, up in the ceiling corner was a tiny bat, hanging up-side-down. It had been a long time since I had actually seen a real bat. Have any of you witnessed
nightly ritual of bats emerging from under the Congress Avenue bridge in Austin, Texas? It is a site to behold.. This is the largest urban bat colony in North America. These bats consume over 30,000 pounds of insects per night. I wish more were here in s.e. Georgia , in huge numbers , to control all these mosquitoes. Maybe my one little bat will eat a few of the mosquitoes that bite my legs and arms , in late evenings especially. These bites leave welts and itch in spite of putting all sorts of medicine on them. Have any of you readers seen any bats around lately?
Many people are frightened of bats , but I read where most are not agressive and most bats do not carry rabies and bats are not blind(even though they cannot see color). There are around 6-7 species on the endangered list.
