Given that some bats act as pollinators, I wonder if anyone, in
the vein of butterfly gardens, is keen on bat gardens. :)
I don't think that the pollinator bats and fruit bats eat mosquitoes. But
maybe the pollinators are eating insects attracted to their diet or maybe they
are strangely specialized "omni"vores. Anyone know for sure?
