From what I have read, the type are brown bats. kind of small about the size of a mouse, body wise and about a 9" to 12 " wingspan. The guano is no problem as I put a pan under the box. They are said to counsume around 14,000 bugs in a single feeding.
There are enough no -see-ems (flying teeth) to keep them well fed.
They are fun to watch fly, great at the arobeics. Dang I have my own air force. whoop ti doo.. beats the heck out of a dog or cat .... I am still no putting in running water for them ... I like the low maintenance pet theroy (LMP) .... cheers
