Bats might be the newest way to combat Zika-infected mosquitoes in Miami.
At least, one city official would like them to be.
Because bats eat mosquitoes, the Miami Beach commissioner wants the city to build bat houses to attract the mammals to the area.
There are some hitches to the bat proposal, though.
The American Mosquito Control Association says on its website that bats are "opportunistic feeders," meaning they'll eat whatever they come across first — not just mosquitoes.
Aerially sprayed pesticides also weaken a bat's immune system and make them more susceptible to diseases.
A town in New York has used bats to combat mosquitoes since 2007.
