Yes, it's the simple things that seem to make me the happiest. Asking the Pres to build a new bat house didn't seem like a big deal. Besides, he's allowed to do things as long as they are not anything too taxing. The request came from me. The directions came from CT DEEP, Division of Wildlife.
The results came from the Pres.
Sharing the simple things with you and those at
Thanks to our DEEP, Division of Wildlife, monitoring the most common bats here in CT is a priority. Did you know that:
- Bats do not multiply like rabbits.
- Even sick bats rarely attack people or pets.
- Bats are not attracted in hordes by the scent of other bats.
- Bats have very few parasites, so additional spraying for parasites is not necessary.
- Permanent physical exclusion is essential for any bat control job.
- The use of poisons to eliminate a bat colony is illegal without a special permit.
- Bat guano is not "toxic"
- Rabies rates in bat populations are not increasing
