This is an attic gable vent with about 15 bats on the outside of the vent screen. The other 15 or so left when I lit them up with my flashlight. However, check out the 2' black SNAKE on top of the vent inside the attic, trying to figure out how to have one of the morsels (or is that marsupials?) for dinner. So, do I tell my buyer to get rid of the snake or keep it to help keep the bats out of the attic?
