HOW TO RESPECT and PROTECT BATS
Don’t use pesticides, a single bat can eat up to 3,000 insects in a night. Put up a bat house. Avoid disturbing bats, stay out of caves and mines where they are hibernating in winter. If bats take up residence in your home, do not try to deal with them yourself, contact your local bat experts.
