Excerpt from page 3 - The Benefits of Bats
Bats are the primary predator of night-flying insects, from mosquitoes that spread disease (not to mention annoyance) to codling moths that attack apple trees and bollworm moths that feast on cotton plants. In fact, in some areas the moths that feed on farm crops make up 90 percent of a bat's diet; in others, the control of malaria has been aided by the resident bat population's diet of mosquitoes.
