  • Bat and "bat bugs" 7-21-22 Four Lakes, WA This appears to be a "big brown bat" that happened to find its way into our house. With the help of leather gloves and a fishnet, we gently caught him and put him up on our rock chimney to fly away. After I took this shot, I noticed the bugs on his wings, and research shows they are common "bat bug" related to bedbugs (not appealing).
