    Was the bat part of the problem or did you just happen to have a bat that was available to pose with this particular board?

    my question would be, how the heck did it get back there, assumming that board came out of a furnace in somebodys basement.

    It was the problem lol. And yes it was a basement install. I have no idea nor did the homeowner as to how it got in the furnace as the doors were on it as well as having the filter in it. Also the board was mounted properly with the 1/2" or so standoffs. When I suspect a bad board I always look for burn marks etc on back of board was a little surprised to see this.

    Bats can crawl thru very small cracks. This one is a Little Brown Bat.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    He does not look that small to me, maybe flat.

    I am not to fond of bats, do go down to the Congress Ave., bridge one
    time and watched the thousands and thousands of bats head out into
    the night. The sky was black with bats, quite impressive.

    That's in Austin, right? Largest urban bat colony, over 1 1/2 million bats. Thats cool.

    You should go to the caves by Longhorn cavern by Inks lake. They are by Marble Falls in Texas Karsthunter. You might be surprised. I believe this is where they took Mike Rowe from "Dirty Jobs" for his bat guano expertise. I think he nearly lost his boot!

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    I found one of those little fellows in an inducer fan at the start of the heat season. He fell down the flue pipe and wrecked the fan on a new Goodman furnace.
