Bat House Plans

Bats are incredibly helpful creatures, especially in regions with swarming scourges of mosquitoes. Bats also play a key role in pollinating plants. Since they eat bugs, they can prove to be very useful if you have a garden and you do not want to subject your precious produce and your family to dangerous pesticides. By building a bat house in your neighborhood, you will not only drive away mosquitoes and other pests, you are also contributing to conserving steadily declining bat population. Building and installing a bat house will ensure that thousands of pestilential bugs will be eaten by bats every night. Here are 5 interesting bat house plans for you to implement.
