Swarms of bats have recently taken up residence at several schools in Louisiana.

The Advocate reports the swarms have caused some annoyance at Zachary High, the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Vermilion Parish's Gueydan High in recent weeks.

Catching the creatures involves closing the doors and windows where a colony is hiding, waiting for them to wake up for their nocturnal foraging and trying to seal entryways while they're out.
