The Wonderful World of Bats

The Wonderful World of Bats

Bats are amazing mammals. Going back some 50 million years on this earth. But there are many myths about bats that have made people fear them. To name a couple: they get in your hair, they suck your blood like vampires. No and No. Bats are amazing insect eaters. Using echolocation to catch their food. Eating somewhere up to 5,000 insects per night per bat depending on the species. This may sometimes bring them rather close as they are homing into the insect buzzing around your head. I say, come and get it, insects love me, so help yourself. They will not get into your hair. They are an asset to our forests, farmers crops and us.
