Very informative! I can't wait to implement all of the ideas in this book. Very well written. The pictures are amazing.
Thank you to Greenleaf Book Club and NetGalley for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I've been trying to get bats to my home for the past year. This book was timely, and it had so many good ideas on not only how to make the house welcoming to bats, but also how to make various bat houses. I really enjoyed this book, and I think anyone interested in nature, or bats, would enjoy it as well.
This book is useful in setting up a successful bat environment. I had a bat house but no bats had nested in it. I learned from the book that temperature is important to the bats, so it has to be located in the right place for the bats to be in a comfortable temperature. The books also suggests that you have more than one house and put them on posts, so that the bats can move from one house to the other as the weather changes.
