Bats are moms too.
We built a bat house for Mother's Day. I'm sure it wouldn't have happened without the holiday prompt. Bats have a nasty reputation, they've been villainized and exterminated mercilessly over the years. But they're so beneficial! One bat can consume 500 to 1000 mosquitoes in a single hour. We should be encouraging that behavior and they're cute too! I found this easy bat house plan at the Bat Conservation Website, we used up some of the scrap wood we had laying around the house and had fun decorating it.
