Both of us have a little over seventy acres and a small farm on it, every year, all of us were losing some of our vegetable to peculiar bugs that would bore right into the fruit! I was tired of seeing ants and other flying bugs destroy our yearly cropâ€¦ Both of us put a couple of bat houses in the middle of the gardens to help protect our truck garden, but the bats were far enough from any homes, so they wouldn’t take up any space in homes.
Both of us only had our bat houses for a year when our buddy came to visit; She often visited when it was time to plant fields, to see what all of us would plant this year.
Instead of discussing our crops, she came over to talk about her beehives. She had been harvesting honey for the last numerous years. She told my partner that our bats ate her bees. Her honey bee population had been greeting diminished, and she was positive the bats were eating them. Both of us had study nothing that said bats would eat honey bees. They usually went for gnats and other small bugs that flew at night. I enjoyed our summer, not needing to worry about all the bugs congregating where all of us sat on the porch. She insisted it had to be our bats that were destroying her honey bee population and demanded all of us get rid of the bats, then my partner and I weren’t budging, and neither was he. She said she would call the police and have us arrested if all of us didn’t get rid of the bats. Her honey bee hives were area of her annual income and she could not afford to have them decimated.
