How exhilarating to marvel at such a wonder of nature - one million Mexican free-tailed bats taking flight at sunset from the Jornada Bat Caves on my Armendaris property. The caves were formed from solidified lava conduits or tubes which fused together in an arch, becoming a huge cave. These are the second largest known lava tubes on the North American continent. As part of Earth Month I want to highlight bat’s integral role in our ecosystem. They are heroes in pest control, plant pollination and seed dispersal. Bats eat enough pests to save more than $1 billion per year in crop damage and pesticide cost in the US alone. Across all agricultural production, bats help save more than $3 billion annually by eating insect pests. Nature working her wonders! (Ted Turner) https://fws.gov/midwest/news/ImportanceOfBats.html
