Key benefits from bat houses
Bats eat one of the most deadly organisms known to humans: the mosquito. Mosquitoes, in addition to being maddeningly annoying, can potentially carry a huge number of diseases.
Bats are at risk from an epidemic of their own that has recently reached the United States, and this one can’t be transmitted to humans. White nose syndrome is a fungal disease that has killed an estimated 5.7 million bats in North America since arriving a few years ago, and in some areas has caused a 90 percent decline among certain bat populations. Providing an house for bats can help them rebuild populations after these outbreaks.
Improving the ecosystem
Bats are good for the diversity of the local life and for the maintenance of food crops. They eat a number of crop pests, including rootworm larvae, leafhoppers, ants, moths, beetles and flies, playing a vital role in the ecosystems in which they reside. Conserving their numbers is a noble thing to do, and bat houses are a simple way to contribute to this project.
Several species of bats in tropical and subtropical areas of the Americas eat nectar. Many types of plants in these regions rely on bats for pollination and seed dispersal, such as the blue agave. In some southwestern parks, long-nose and long-tongue bats are perfectly adapted to pollinate these plants, and they provide extensive value to the agricultural industry. So next time you sweeten your coffee with agave nectar, remember to thank a bat.
