My wife proposed the idea of building a bat box for the back yard, to invite bats to live and eat bugs. Supposedly they'll take care of all the bugs in the yard. I told her I had memories of being in our swimming pool at our home on a farm at night and bats swooping down into the pool scaring the daylights out of me as a youngster.
What do you guys think? Am I risking getting dive bombed in my pool if I invite bats to roost nearby? We do have them in our neighborhood now, but I don't see them in our pool yet.
