The Olde Presbyterian Church on West Gay Street had a few bats in its belfry before a renovation project began last year.
Well, not exactly. The bats, more than a few – try 1,500 to 2,000 – found a home in the attic, not the belfry, of the roughly 140-year-old church.
Two species of bats, the little brown bat and Mexican free-tailed bat, colonized in the attic, raising generations of bats for at least 20 years, said Jason Peeples of Forest and Wildlife Innovations, a company that specializes in removing nuisance animals from populated areas.
