Spring is nearly here, and the bats that frequent your backyard will be coming home soon - if they can find a home.
Bats return from migration as early as March in most of the US (but stay year-round in the extreme southern US).
This makes late winter one of the best times to erect a bat house.
Bats serve as nature's pest control. In fact, one small brown bat will eat thousands of mosquitos and other night-flying insects each night.
