In the eyes of many people, the practices of forestry and farming are mutually exclusive, because in the modern world, agriculture involves open fields, straight rows, and machinery to grow crops, while forests are primarily reserved for timber and firewood harvesting.

Use Bats To Combat Your Yard’s Mosquito Population
Mosquitoes Population, Batbox, Gardens Ideas, Yard Mosquitoes, Bats Conservatory, Bugs, Bats House, Backyard, Bats Boxes
I am seriously considering this! To combat mosquitos---a bat box can hold up to 500 bats! If you have a small pond in your backyard, it will be a great source of water for them. They can catch their own food, often helping to control mosquito populations. When placing your bat box in just the right spot, your backyard will become bat friendly very easily.
Use Bats To Combat Your Yard’s Mosquito Population - the average bat eats around 600 bugs each night. Western Red Cedar bat house available at Amazon (link at this site)
Use Bats To Combat Your Yard’s Mosquito Population | the average bat will eat around 600 bugs, including mosquitoes, per day (or night rather). With a simple Bat Conservatory you keep a few bats hanging around (bad pun alert!) your yard , and thus keeping the area bug population at a minimum. If you don’t mind the bats being around at night, then install this Bat Conservatory made from Western Red Cedar for around $55.
I need a new batbox :(
