Bli fladdermusfadder

"Marvin Maberry's bat houses range from $100 economy models to the luxurious $5,650 'Texas Bat Centre' that houses 14,000 bats."
(Building Homes for Bats, dec 2003)
Man kan uppenbarligen ha en massa nytta av en fladdermus:
"The 65-year-old Maberry also works at dispelling the harmful myths that bats are dirty and dangerous vampires. Lure a bat to a bat house, he says, and it can eat mosquitoes and crop-destroying moths, not to mention staying out of human houses. (...)

Bats can eat up to 1,200 bugs an hour, which makes them potential allies in places infested with mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile. And organic farmers across the country are adopting bat houses as part of their natural pest-control programs."

(Fast personligen tror jag att jag satsar på tornseglarholkar istället.)
