Fungus Decreasing Local Bat Population

There is a growing concern that the local bat population is decreasing due to a fungus call white-nose syndrome. No bats have been seen this summer season cites one Katonah resident.

Bat's get a bad rap, yet they are our best friend. Not only do they pollinate the world’s fruit-producing plants, but they also eat thousands of mosquitoes in a night!

Sitting out on your patio or deck at dusk this summer will be a challenge with the increase in mosquitoes due to the decline in the local bat population.
