@pedro maia,

It would be impossible to say now if there will be bats or not, although being on the cold side the chances are that there might not be. Bats just form part of the Ecosystem and here we just have to live with it, they do keep the mozzies away.

Thanks, I know it´s not possible to say what will happen, I only wanted to check the odds.

I also understand bats form part of the ecosystem and I like bats, but not inside :wink:

We stayed at Twee Rivieren in Aug 2012 and didnt have any bats in our chalet which was a FA4 chalet. We did have bats in the kitchen at Kielikrankie, but we just closed the kitchen door and we didnt have any problems. We did find that with the colder temperatures the bats seemed to be less "energetic"......dont know if this is a proven fact or that the bats we have encountered in the winter months have just been more relaxed. :hmz:

the Bats, here in Europe, hibernate, in winter (about November to April)
