A Little About Bats

  • 1 bat can eat up to 3,000 insects a night
  • They can live up to 30 years
  • Bats are more closely related to people than mice
  • Bats do not get dizzy when hanging upside down for hours.
  • Bat numbers have been declining in recent years for many reason namely
    • Loss of feeding habitats
    • Loss of insects due to pesticides
    • Climate change
    • Loss of roost sites due to development
    • Increased artificial light illuminating roosts
  • To attract bats into your garden you could try the following...
    • Plant night-scented plants
    • Build a pond
    • Create a wild garden, allowing native plants & grasses grow
    • Put up a bat box
    • Create linear features eg.. hedgerows or tree lines
    • Reduce or remove artificial lighting
    • Keep cats indoors at night
