How to Attract Bats for Better Insect Control

Most North American bats eat insects and can gobble up over 1,000 mosquitoes per hour. That means an ordinary colony of 75 bats can devour up to 75,000 insects in just 60 minutes — talk about pest control!

Like all creatures, bats seek food, water, and shelter.

If you don’t have a natural water source nearby, install a birdbath or fountain to attract more bats to your backyard.

Plant fragrant flowers, herbs, and night-blooming plants, which will attract nocturnal insects, which, in turn, lure bats.

If owls live near your off grid shed, cabin or home, building and installing an owl box might attract a pair to your backyard and/or around gardens and barns. Most owl species, like barn owls, are ferocious predators of mice and other rodent pests, and people who live in rural areas know why it makes sense to invite them to keep a night watch over their properties by building and installing an owl house.
