This is so sad. I guess we won't have any more bats eating the mosquitoes and blackflies here. And we always had some in our loft but not anymore.

  1. No question that it will +David R Robinson – with all of the implications that has for lymes disease etc. They eat, as you say, tons of them. Or half their body weight a night, I think I heard? That is one huge amount of mosquitoes.

  2. Thank Divinity we still have bats in Denmark. But the decrease in their population from 10 years ago is so obvious. I love these little fellows and enjoy so much the rare sight of them in the dusk.
