Why Bats Make the Best Mosquito Eaters

How Many Mosquitoes Can Bats Eat?

Now we’re getting to the good stuff. The number of mosquitoes a bat can eat is what makes them so good at handling backyard mosquito control.

Bats may be smaller animals, but they certainly do eat a lot. Many a bat species can eat over 30% of their body weight in bugs - in under an hour! Think about that. No matter how hard you try, you cannot eat 30% of your weight in beef.

Due to these staggering numbers, a healthy and hungry bat can eat up to 1,200 bugs, insects, and mosquitoes in one single hour. That’s a lot of mosquitoes that won’t be biting your legs and ankles any longer.
