Bats eat hundreds of insects in the night and so if your garden is an insect haven, it might well start becoming an attractive bat hang-out too! To further entice this intriguing night dwelling creature, there are several additional things you could do.

Firstly, build a pond. Bats love the insects that are found skittering on a pond surface.

Secondly, make a bat box or, even better, leave old or dying trees since they may have a perfectly sized nesting cavity.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, plant more wild flowers, especially those pale flowered types that release evening scents since these attract the kind of insects bats savour.
