Bats have lost roosting sites and have been poisoned by pesticides, their numbers have dwindled and some species are endangered. Providing a home for them, not just as a daytime hangout but to make them less vulnerable during hibernation, is one way you can ensure their future. In return, each Little Brown Bat, for instance, will consume up to 600 mosquitoes in one hour.
