The little brown bat is one of the most encountered bats in North America. These winged mammals are tiny, about the size of a human thumb. Although small, these mighty bats eat up to about 1,200 insects an hour. This makes them fantastic mosquito repellants.
Since mosquitoes are their favorite snack, farmers appreciate these bats for pest control. Plus, they eat mosquitoes carrying diseases like the West Nile Virus. This makes our nighttime activities much safer and controlled.
