Hope my sis and I can build this. I would love to attract bats to my neighbourhood. Bats do us a great service by eating a HUGE amount of flying insects (including MOSQUITOES) and consequently help to control some dangerous and harmful pests.
Gross, but good to know. Tick Removal: A nurse discovered a safe, easy way to remove ticks where they automatically withdraw themselves when you follow her simple instructions. I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to remove a tick. Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tickwith the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away. Please pass on.
BAT HOUSE: Why build a house to attract bats to your backyard? For starters, a small bat can capture up to 1,000 mosquitos in just one hour. I happen to love bats. Once, I found an injured one, befriended it while I nursed it back to health, and then freed it when it was well enough to return to nature. They are not creepy or anything to fear.
