A House For Bats


 I have heard about the bat houses that people were putting up but had never seen one until I spotted this one installed above a garage along one of the laneways I explore. It looks rather nice.

I have two, but one has fallen into the frog pond.
I love bats. We often have them in the house.

I agree about the look. It looks like luxury bat accommodations to me. Great Idea!

We have a lot of them around here, but mostly quite plain, this one is quite stylish with the carved bats on it! Very nice.

There are actually quite a few here. They really help keep the bugs in check.

That is a lovely bat house. They are fine critters to have around in the summer as they eat their own weight in mosquitoes every day. I have plans for building bat houses from the Minnesota DNR. Now I just need a place to put one up. There are bat houses in our city nature park.

I never knew that there were bat houses. That's a nice one.

I have one myself. They became popular for bats to reduce the spread of West Nile virus. Bats are nature's best predator against mosquitoes that carry the virus.
