Bat Control

Biting back at mosquitoes



It’s difficult to control the mosquitoes this time of year. A recent
“Texas Gardener Seeds” newsletter suggests to “Put up a bat house to
encourage the presence of these shy animals. Bats consume 3,000 or more
mosquitoes and other insects nightly, and bats are less likely to be rabid
than dogs are. Bats are also responsible for up to 95 percent of the seed
dispersal essential to the regeneration of forests.


Our planet is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing
creatures. Here are three from the Bat Family...
