Bats are one of nature’s best insect predators, often eating thousands of mosquitoes and other insect pests in just one night. However, their helpful ways are quickly forgotten when they find their way into school buildings. What are the health issues associated with bats, the legal considerations surrounding their removal, and proven tactics to both prevent and manage them? This webinar featured bat specialists from Cornell University and Bat Conservation International as they discuss the positive contributions bats make to the environment as well as the risks they present to students, faculty and staff at schools. Information about how to best handle bat/human conflicts, relocate invading bats, properly clean up bat droppings and prevent future incursions into school buildings was presented.
