    October is National Bat Appreciation and Raptor Month

    Celebrate Bats & Owls as October recognizes both cool species! There couldn’t be a more fitting time of year to think about bats! The great thing is that bat houses and owl boxes help both species thrive, and they’ll take you up on cozy digs if offered in suitable habitat. Beneficial to have around your property for rodent and insect control, bats and owls could use a helping hand as their natural habitats continue to shrink. If you’ve ever climbed up in the attic to find a bat or two clinging to the vent screen… it can be a bit unnerving! But the flying mammals are fairly harmless and sadly,…

    Grandpa’s Pet Bat Didn’t use a Bat House

    They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky… remember the theme song? Maybe old enough like us to mix them up with the family residing at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. It was Grandpa from the Munster’s who had the pet bat! Only showing him in flight, I don’t recall ever seeing his bat house, can you remember his name? Regardless, both of those theme songs keep replaying in the brain. On a more serious note, it’s believed that about 44% of bees have perished this year from pesticide poisoning, which is really scary!

    Attract Them and Offer Roosts with Bat Houses

    They make some cool shelters these days, from vintage to Victorian, recycled plastic, even kits to build your own bat houses. You can try your luck at attracting bats without a big investment. But why would anyone want to attract them? One word – beneficial would sum it up best! Bats are major pollinators and seed spreaders.

    These Guys Use Bat Houses too – Please Advocate for Them

    Almost eight years later and we’re still dealing with the mysterious fungus known as white nose syndrome which is critically affecting the bat population. Originating in the northeastern US, it’s continually spreading further west and south. Although it may seem trivial to some, the furry, winged mammals (yes they’re mammals) play a key role in the eco-system… especially to farmers and their crops. A little closer to home, as in our own backyards, bats help control insect populations with behavior that for the most part, goes unnoticed. They just happen to be some of our major pollinators too! By offering shelter in the form of bat houses, you’ll encourage the…
