Does anyone know how to keep fruit bats away? We have an enormous wild fig (Zelate) tree covering our property, and when it produces figs, the fruit bats start coming and leaving their deposits on our terrace. We've tried keeping a light on, using a flashing, multi-colored light, banging the lid to a pan, but none of that keeps them away. The figs are about to ripen, and there are millions of them, and we are hoping to find a solution soon. Any suggestions? BTW, the figs are useless for human consumption, but if someone wants to haul them away for animal feed, you'd be welcome! Sometimes there are 200 pounds per day . . .
