Seeing a bat flying around on your property or, even worse, inside your home, can be terrifying. Often associated with fearsome creatures like vampires, bats are actually very beneficial to the ecosystem (their main diet is flying insects!) and only a few species actually drink blood. This doesn't necessarily mean that bats are something you want hanging around your home — they can be carriers of several dangerous diseases.
