Answer: Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The bats are hard to control in the garden. The best way to protect your fruit is to net them with a strong netting that is not close or touching the fruit.

Lights can also assist with deterring some bats but take care as it can also keep your neighbours up if it is too bright.

Kind regards
