Got mosquitoes? Get a bat house!
From the time the weather turns warm to the time it turns cold again, mosquitoes are a pesky problem in Maryland. And if you happen to live by the water, you’re in for it even worse!
A great, natural alternative to sprays, zappers and pesticides is a bat house. While some may bristle at the thought of actually attracting bats, the fact is they are fantastic mosquito eaters. Mosquitoes are the primary source of food for many bat species. And here’s a fun fact – some bats can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes per hour! Now that’s pest control.
Ace Hardware & Hearth and Ace Home & Leisure carry bat houses that can be placed on nearby trees. Available in several styles, housing bats near your yard will help control disease-carrying mosquitoes all year long.
