- Overall bat activity was higher in natural habitat compared to farms.
- Crop diversification increased activity of all bat species and clutter-adapted bats.
- Activity of clutter-adapted bats was higher on farms with greater prey biomass.
- Prey biomass increased with crop diversity and less frequent pesticide use.
- Agroecological farming practices can improve on-farm habitat quality for bats.
