Filsingers Organic Apple Orchard (Ayton, Ontario, Canada) - BatHouseGuy worked with Filsingers to erect a 5 foot x 8 foot - 3 chamber bat house which has the capacity to hold 2,500 bats, which will consume in excess of 11 million pesky insects in 24 hours.  You can find a map on the Filsinger website - note: the bat house was erected in February 2012 so there are no bats as of yet, but you can still go and check out the bat house.  While visiting, check out their store and pick up some amazing apple butter, pear butter, sweet apple cider etc.
