White-Nose Syndrome = More Mosquitoes
The fungus grows on the nose, wing membranes and ears of bats while they hibernate during the winter. Researchers report that his causes the bats to wake up frequently, burning up vital fat stores, resulting in starvation.
Bats are vital to insect control, particularly mosquitoes which spread EEE, West Nile Virus, and other potentially fatal diseases.
