Bats Make Good Neighbors

Record #:
There are seventeen species of bats known to be in North Carolina. They are the main predators of night-flying insects, as well as agricultural pests like hickory shuckworms and corn earworms. Burgess explains how Lon Coulter of Crumpler in this state and Frank and Teresa Bibin of Georgia utilize bat houses to control pests. Bat colonies number about 1,000 in North Carolina and between 3,000 and 4,000 in Georgia.
