(KSAT San Antonio)   A Boy Scout wants to help his community. So he sets up Bat Condos for up to 1,600 bats to sleep and live in hoping they will help reduce the mosquito population. No word what they will use to get rid of the bats once they become a nuisance   (ksat.com) divider line 12

Is there a gorilla that likes bat meat? Bring them in and wait for winter and let the gorillas freeze.

Excess bats aren't a problem... it's all those worthless Robins you have to worry about.

Liese: Cyno01: pissnmoan: A word about Purple Martins.  They don't eat many mosquitoes.  Bats eat them like M&M's.

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_Martin

They dont actually. The whole "bats eat 600 mosquitoes an hour!" thing is from a single really flawed study where scientists put a bunch of bats in a room full of nothing but mosquitoes. Examination of the droppings of wild bats shows that they much prefer larger meatier bugs, mosquitoes making up a negligible part of their diet. Adult mosquitoes arent a significant part of any food chains, so if mosquitoes disappeared tomorrow, bats wouldnt go extinct. However their larva are an important part of many aquatic food chains.

You're forgetting that regular vs breeding season will cause bats to eat different insects at different parts of the year. Mexican free-tailed bats actually eat quite a bit of mosquitoes, although the numbers on that I don't have. Suffice to say, they will take mosquitoes.

Yeah but we can't have Mexican bats taking the jobs of American bats in Texas, somebody's likely to get shot.
