Bat Week – Bat Facts – Bats Eat a lot of Insects

Posted by on Oct 26, 2015

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.
