So I asked a running buddy/DIY expert friend if she wanted to help me make a bat box and, of course, she not only said yes but searched for and printed plans and had all the needed materials (gotta love free scrap wood!) already on hand. Bats can eat up to 1000 mosquitoes an hour (!!!) so encouraging them to take up residence near your home can be very beneficial!

UPDATE: She did it!!
Now to figure out where and how to hang mine. I'm super excited! And it was a really fun project. Here's hoping both of us have a mozzie-free summer!!
