Bats and Mosquitoes

Dear Editor;
We have bats in our barns. We have no mosquitoes on our farm. Gnats, yes, but no mosquitoes. A single bat will eat 6,000 to 8,000 mosquitoes a night. Wind turbines generate infrasound waves that kill bats by messing with their echolocation system, their heart muscles, and their lungs. Ironically, bats are attracted to turbines due to confusion brought on by the 18 hertz sound waves. They fly straight to their deaths.
