Great Bat Article- http://www.reporterherald.com/lifestyles/recreation/ci_31402623/benefits-bats-stretch-from-bugs-tequila-cashews . Bats pollinate 500 plant species, including avocado, agave, coconut, papaya, guava, mango, and banana. They spread seeds for almonds, cashews and mangoes. They eat lots of insects, protecting crops including coffee, beans, rice walnuts, cotton, and strawberries. The article mentions that some bats migrate and some hibernate. I enjoy watching bats swoop over me eating insects while I hike along Boulder Creek of come down one of the foothills in the twilight.
