Edwardsville Township Park Bat Houses
In an effort to reduce mosquito levels, Edwardsville Township will be installing three bat houses in Township Park to encourage bats to remain and naturally control the mosquito population in the area. Bats are an environmentally friendly way in which the Township can additionally control for mosquitoes while continuing the summer spray schedule.
The bat houses will be installed in the park on Tuesday, September 6 and will feature informational signage about bats and their pest control abilities. For more information on the bat house installation in Township park, please call the Edwardsville Township Office at 618-656-0292.
