To attract bats you need to encourage bug life.  In gardens, leave an area wild.  Create small piles of woody twigs and cut branches.

You can also plant night-blooming plants to encourage moths – a key part of bats’ diet.

Common Garden Bats:

  • Common pipistrelle
  • Soprano pipistrelle
  • Noctule
  • Daubenton’s bat
  • Brown long-eared bat
