Did you know one brown bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour? Now this bat house doesn’t look so funny does it?

we are lucky enough to have a pre-existing bat population that we love to watch swoop during twilight hours. This house will hopefully attract more. It is supposed to house up to 80 bats (which is a whole lot of mosquito killing!) and took Paul a few spare hours to make. Did I mention how excited this makes me? We have to hang it 10 feet high, facing southwest, getting 6 hours of sun a day. This may prove to be the most challenging part, but I am determined to get it up this weekend.
