HOW TO; BUILD A BAT HOUSE!!According to Bat Conservation International, a single bat can capture 500 to 1,000 mosquitoes in a single hour! Bats are also interesting because: In many ecosystems, they play a key role in pollinating plants. There are more than 1,000 species of bats in the world!

From the site: "Bat Conservation International’s (BCI) mission is to conserve the world’s bats and their ecosystems to ensure a healthy planet. BCI was founded in 1982, as scientists around the world became concerned that bats essential to the balance of nature and human economies were in alarming decline."
