Hi, I am new to this and am going to start a hive. Now, I have bat boxes. The bats sleep in the boxes and at night they go out an eat insects. I would assume that the bees are all in the hive by then.
My question is do the bats bother the bees? Eat them?
Not a problem. The bats are nocturnal and are out feeding while the bees are snug in the hive. There are some diurnal (daytime active) fruit-eatting bats, but they won't bother your bees unless your bees are dressed like kiwi fruit and smelling of strawberries.
