Bats are good neighbors to have around. A single bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes in one hour. They are a great natural pest controller. Bats like tight and warm spaces. They like it to be 27 to 38 degrees celsius when they have their young with them. The bat house should be placed in the sun and around 4 to 5 metres off the ground to prevent predators from getting them.
