Did you know that 13 of our 24 species of bats in California are species of special concern? Cal Trans and other agencies are working hard to preserve these insect eating mammals. Bats benefit farmers by eating insects that eat crops, and rain down gold - in the form of guano - a primo-deluxe fertilizer. Bat house kits are available on-line. Here, a silvery hoary bat eats a blend of insects.
