Legend has it that vampires can turn into bats and disappear in the night. Wah-ha-ha! No wonder people think bats are vicious creatures. But they’re not! And they certainly don’t want to snack on you; they’d prefer insects instead. Each night, bats chow down on thousands of insects. When it comes to feeding, Canadian bats will eat night-flying insects like moths, wasps, ants, flies, beetles, gnats, mosquitoes, midges and mayflies — although some bats do have their favourite snacks! The Big Brown Bat really loves feeding on beetles, and the Hoary Bat mainly sticks to moths.
