Bat numbers around the region have declined in recent years. As an Eagle Scout project, I wanted to encourage healthy bat populations in the area. A great way to have healthy bats is to have safe habitats for them to live in. With help from my fellow scouts, we built 8 large boxes that can house upwards of 100 bats per box. It is important for bat box locations to consider if their food source is nearby. The Beaver County Conservation District had some great spots and were gracious enough to let me place them there.

A single bat can eat 6,000 to 8,000 mosquito sized bugs a night. If you have a lot of bugs, you may want to have a bat box of your own. I am grateful to the Conservation District for allowing me to place these boxes where bats will have the greatest chance at a healthy happy life.
