Bats for your garden

Little brown bat

Did you know that a little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) can eat 1,000 insects an hour? Little brown bats are insectivores, eating moths, wasps, beetles, gnats, mosquitoes, midges and mayflies, among others. The little brown bat and the big brown bat live in the northern two-thirds of the United States. In the south, Mexican free-tailed and evening bats are the most common.


Growing Your Own Fruits & Vegetables

Growing your own fruits & vegetables is a process of urban agriculture, suburban gardening, or small farming of food for non-commercial use; including everything from windowsill herb gardens to small, self-sustaining farms. It can be a form of permaculture or organic gardening – or may involve the use of small-scale chemicals & fertilizers.
