Are Bats a Secret Weapon Against Mosquitoes?

Any standing water can attract mosquitoes and attract bats that feed on them. Bats pose a risk of rabies and accounted for 188 of the 198 animals diagnosed with rabies in 2013. While mosquitoes are only a portion of a bat’s diet, everyone is still encouraged to use standing water on plants to address current drought conditions and prevent mosquitoes.
