Bats can eat close to their body weight in insects every night.
Bats are not blind. Sonar enhances their vision rather than replacing it.
Bats can help pollinate plants and spread seeds.
Three bat boxes were installed around Peters Township on April 8, 2021. Bat houses like these give bats a place to roost away from buildings, attics and chimneys. Dedicated roosting areas and shelters are key to co-habitation between bats and humans. Unfortunately White-Nose Syndrome is decimating our bat populations. Shelters like these help bats survive, but there is much work to be done.
The boxes were installed at Fire Station #1, Peters Lake Park, and near the Peters Township Community Recreation Center.
