Bird and Bat Houses - How to Control Mosquitoes and Insects the Natural Way

You are likely already aware of the dangers that the West Nile Virus presents to horses & humans. This virus is carried by mosquitoes & therefore, it is very important to control the mosquito population on your property. In addition to reducing the sources of still water on your farm such as puddles, drainage ditches, water troughs, & old tires filled with rain water, etc., we recommend that you erect Purple Martin & Bat Houses in various locations.

Purple Martins are beautiful birds that can eat up to 60,000 insects each & every day! We recommend that you try to attract & house these wonderful birds because they are fascinating to watch & offer the best natural insect & pest control solution. Purple Martins enjoy living in large colonies. The more houses you put up the more of them you can attract. Our Purple Martin house is both attractive & helpful in reducing the number of insects on your property.

Bats are another effective & natural way to control insects. Erecting a few bat houses in several locations can reduce your mosquito population. A bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitos an hour at night as you sleep! Our triple chamber Bat House can accomodate up to 60 bats & controls insects up to 10 acres depending on vegetation, forestation, & other factors.
