I have a bat house hanging on one end of my shed. My idea is to make my property more bat friendly, helping with mosquito control. I’ve already addressed standing water/etc and I really do not have a “mosquito problem” per se, but what the heck, huh.
I have a few little brown bats I see in the evenings, but no bat house activity as yet. I was wondering if installation of a light near the bat house would attract bugs and thus bats to the bat house area. Ideally, this would require no wiring.
Does my idea sound like it will work?
Does a light exist that would be insect attracting yet run off of a photo voltaic arrangement? (This is the question that led me to post in general questions.)
Anyone have a bat house that would like to share their anecdotes, feel free.
