Chimneys and Ovens

In Winter many bats are looking for the warmness of the chimney. Unfortunately, the search for the warmness sometimes ends up by falling into the chimney where the bats are trapped and have no way out. The animals fall in and burn painfully. Tip: Please bring a tight-fitting mesh over the chimney opening, so you not only protect bats, but also birds. Maybe the chimney sweeper helps you fixing the mesh. The loops should not be bigger than 0,2 - 0,4 inch, otherwise bats can fall through it. And please look often into the chimney if a bat is inside.

 

Fully covered with smut

This Pipistrellus pipistrellus was rescued fully covered with smut from a fireplace. Several baths were necessary to clean her from the smut particles. (Note: the treatment was done without gloves because it would not have been possible to do that with gloves)
