I live in NWPA and monitor over 2,000 little brown and big brown bats that roost bat boxes in 3 counties.....as of 2011 my numbers were the same or better than the previous year........Some how I feel that the worst is over........that there will be pockets of bats unaffected by the fungus and we can work to restore the populations to what they were before........I have learned so much in the past 12 years building and mounting bat houses and hope to put what I have learned to good use helping bats in the future........

White-Nose Syndrome in Bats
Taking a look at the spread each year.....it appears that even though wns is still spreading, it has slowed some.........that's what it looks like to me........I'm going to keep building and mounting bat houses........

I know! I haven't told Aria yet. She's been into bats lately. She would have a complete meltdown!

The little brown bats that nest in my shed still forage Petticoat Creek which is an undisturbed woodland. The Region was threatening to spray the marshes for Nile Virus but thankfully backed off. I would much rather loose a few Crows than the Bats.

The loss of bats means an increase in insects including crop pests. So, if you can't love bats just because they are bats, help support research because the cost to agriculture will be staggering.

This isn't just about the 'poor little bats' (about which we all feel very, very sad) but about the terrible imbalance resulting from the loss of so many insectivorous animals. What will this mean to the ecosystem? We're just fortunate we don't have it here, though we do have lyssavirus and we have recently lost the Christmas Island Pippistrelle (that island's only insectivorous bat).
