Bats are great for the environment as they consume their body weight in flying insects every evening. In addition to being good for the environment they are fun to watch as they dart through the sky at dusk in their erratic chase for mosquitoes, moths, Japanese beetles, grasshoppers, ants, flies and other flying bugs and insects.
