Bat Houses Help Offset Pandemic

A common and recent disease found only in brown bats threatens to wipe out entire species. In terms of ecology and the food chain in general, this is a serious concern for scientists. Insect populations may grow wildly without control from brown bats. Confused bats are being seen in broad daylight, during hibernation cycles when food sources are not available. Their cycles are interrupted and whole colonies are dying off at an alarming rate.

Erecting bat houses may help some of the stray bats find adequate shelter in hopes of survival. The following video explains further about the bat’s disease known as White Nose Syndrome.
