Mosquito fact #10

Bird or bat species are not effective for mosquito control. Although some bird species as purple martins consume large numbers of flying insects, mosquitoes comprise no more than 0 to 3 percent of their diet. Bats are mostly opportunistic insect feeders and mosquitoes comprise less than 1 percent of bat guts. Beetles moths and wasps are the favorable meals of bats although some species-specific differences do exist.
