This little brown bat (myotis lucifugus) is an important part of your ecosystem. The little bat can eliminate half the population of mosquitoes and other monster biters that horde your home throughout the United States. These little bats are smaller as your normal bats. They will circle your security light nightly for the insects.
There are many people that don’t want anything that looks like a mouse around their home, especially one that flies. The little brown bat doesn’t want to attack people, he only wants to eat insects. The little brown bat eats the most common insects such as mayflies, mosquitoes, luna moths, other types of moths, mosquitoes, wasps, gnats, hornets, yellow jackets, and much more. No gnarly little bug is a match for the teeth of the little brown bat.
People try to eliminate the bat population around their home, but they don’t realize how important they are to the ecosystem around your home. People who are educated about conserving the little myotis lucifugus put up bat boxes or bat houses around their home because it’s easier for the little bat to nest. The bat is the happiest home owner in the world. They are the least problematic animal that would bother you. If you are one that lives in the deep woods you probably have coons and opossums around. The bat does its job and roosts for the day.
