Do Bats Really Help With Mosquito Control?
Bats have both good and bad reputations that they don't really deserve. If there are bats roosting in your home, you should contact bat removal as soon as possible. This is not because of the creatures' purported viciousness, which is an exaggeration at best, but because bats can inadvertently expose you to disease, mostly through their droppings. However, bats also have a reputation as a mosquito-killing machine. Though more flattering, this is an exaggeration as well. It is true that bats are beneficial creatures that have a role to play in mosquito control, but they do not eat as many mosquitos as their reputation suggests.
