Bats: Whats happening to natures very own pest control?

 

You may think bats are scary, but what's truly terrifying is the mysterious fungus that's decimating the bat population, according to an article by Stacy Chase in last Sunday's Boston Globe:

At least 1 million bats in the past three years have been wiped out by a puzzling, widespread disease dubbed "white-nose syndrome"baby bat in what preeminent US scientists are calling the most precipitous decline of North American wildlife in human history.

If it isn't slowed or stopped, they believe bats will continue disappearing from the landscape in huge numbers and that entire species could become extinct within a decade.

They carry a lot of disease, and the guano's just so toxic, it's--especially if you have kids--it's terrible."
