>High Food Prices? Blame The Bats

>According to Fast Company, an epidemic is wiping out U.S. bats, which are responsible for consuming large amounts of pests every day. In fact, the industrious little brown bat eats up to 1,200 insects per hour– a very large feat for such a tiny name. And not only are bats talented in pest control, but they are also great pollinators. Of course, less bats means more pests and less pollination, which means higher food prices for us.
