Do they eat fireflies?

If you plant mosquito repellant plants - are we hurting the bats consumption. We have bat houses in our back yard so I do not want to encourage them to come live here and then scarring away their food.

Do bats only hunt/eat while flying? Do they mainly just consume flying pests?

I have a large area planted with lantana because it takes so little work to maintain. I understand this plant isn’t native but it attracts butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. Should I dig it all out?

Don't bats need about a 15' clearance below the bathouse, so they won't hit anything when they drop down to leave the box?
