Beneficial Bats

Going Batty for Bats

The City is taking the lead in a city-wide effort to promote the use of Bat Houses in the City. Bats serve as natural mosquito control and are native to Florida. The City has installed six bat houses in the City. An updated map with these locations is included on this page. We welcome you to visit these sites and let us when you see any bat activity. In addition to educating folks on the benefits of bats and bat houses, we are providing contact information for the Florida Bat Conservancy (http://www.floridabats.org/) who we partnered with to install our six new bat houses. For more information contact the Environmental Programs Coordinator, Nicholas F. Sanzone via email at nsanzone@satellitebeach.org, and he will be happy to tell you more about this program. View videos about this and other City projects on YouTube and visit us on Facebook to share stories and comments.
