The greatest benefits of having resident bats is that they are insect eaters and will keep your garden free of insect pests. They are wonderful seed dispersers and their excrement is an organic fertilizer. Bats are protected and there are about 36 species that live in our gardens. They are attracted to flowers that open at night and are fragrant, like the Barringtonia racemorsa, Kigelia africana and Adansonia digitata.
