Bats are helpful mammals, as they eat huge numbers of insects that would otherwise be a nuisance, yet their search for safe roosting grounds is threatened by the clearing of forests for development and lumber. Bat houses can also be used to draw bats away from the attic, where they have been known to take residence and cause problems for building occupants.
