Hate Mosquitoes? Build a Bat House!

Fed up with mosquitoes? Afraid of West Nile? Enjoy the thought of a natural solution? Build yourself a bat house!

Bats love to eat mosquitoes, and in many areas of the US, all they need is a snug home to live in before they'll hang out in your back yard. Rarely a threat at all to humans, few bats carry rabies and most live quite comfortably near humans, dining on bugs and fruit. A single bat can eat 3,000 mosquitoes and other insects in a single evening!

Use this easy to follow instruction book to build your own, or buy a pre-built bat house at just about any birding supply shop or garden supply shop. Bat houses should be unpainted and unvarnished, with rough inner surfaces. It should be about 12' up on a tree, where it gets morning sun but afternoon shade.
