    Bats are not the scary, blood sucking vampires that we see on TV. In fact, they are huge contributors to our ecosystem and having a bat house on your property has many benefits. Bats, like bees, pollinate our plants. Their feces often includes seeds that can regrow wherever the feces lands. Bats also eat a large quantity of bugs, including mosquitoes, the real bloodsuckers. A bat house is typically made from wood. It can have one, or multiple chambers and can house anywhere from 50-100 bats. Location and surrounding environment should be considered before installing a bat house. The houses can be installed on a tree, poll, or building. Be sure to install the house at least 3 meters off the ground to protect the bats from predators, and keep the house in an uncluttered area. The house should also be exposed to direct sunlight throughout the day.
