Adding a bat house for shelter to tiny brown bats is a wisely ecological choice. The bats have earned a bad rap as the winged symbol of Halloween, blood and vampires…This is the biggest misconception, as bats can be man’s best friend during the buggy, summer months.
Bats pollinate fruit as well as taking care of pesky insects that make our lives miserable during summer. They’re able to wipe out thousands of blood-sucking mosquitoes in one night’s feeding. Farmers have known the advantages to keeping bat populations, in order to keep crops bug-free.
So next time you reach for an insecticide to rid the yard of unwanted pests, think about installing a bat house instead!
