Our Bat Homes

An essential part of our biowarfare program against mosquitoes is the many visiting rainforest bats. We recently built some homes for them so they would be more comfortable.   The homes are made of plywood with a lexan roof.

A former volunteer and a biologist, Tomáš, made two nice bat homes for us and installed them.
