Bat Week – Bat Facts – Bats Eat a lot of Insects
In an effort to help bring awareness to all the good that bats do, NDOW is once again taking part in Bat Week from Oct. 25-31.
Bat Fact: Bats eat large quantities of insects like mosquitoes, beetles, grasshoppers, moths and locusts. A single bat can eat more than 1,000 small insects per night. Bats are the only night-time predators of insects, and without them, insect populations would grow catastrophically.
