White Nose Syndrome in Bats

White Nose Syndrome
Apparently, white nose syndrome, a symptom found in bats is valued around $1.9 million taxpayer dollars.

At this point where most of us are cadging to make ends meet, businesses are weakening while jobs are being lost - Congress supports and approved 1.9 million dollars of taxpayer money to be used in treating White Nose Syndrome in Bats.

I would empathize if the white-nose syndrome is something that vexed the population, and triggered health crisis. We can't even get H1N1 "swine flu" aligned, and at the present time we are concerned about bats?

We understand that bats need to remain healthy is significant to each of us. Bats eat insects that kill our harvests, and bats eat a huge part of the mosquito inhabitants. These two realities represent three things for the human race: we have better crops, we aren't as irritated with mosquitoes as we would be if no bats ate them, and West Nile Virus would be lessen or reduce.

What exactly is a white-nose syndrome? These information gathered from Gather.com, white nose syndrome is a fungus that breeds on the nose of bats. The fungus bothers the bats, ceasing their hibernation routine that causes numerous bats to become too feeble to pursuit the amount of insects to keep them stay alive. Across the Northeast, bats are being decimated by white-nose syndrome.

Initially, I wasn't too fond of $1.9 million taxpayer dollars being distributed to eliminate a fungus on the end of a bat's nose. Maybe seeing that hundreds of people every single day goes to bed empty-bellied, can't get sufficient health care, I constantly incline to believe that it's best for us to consume our tax dollars at home on ways that can create advantage to our society.

Eliminating white-nose syndrome will benefit our society. Granted that bats can be frightening and spooky, they perform a pivotal task in the eco-system. Can you visualize trying to camp in the course of summer with a plague of mosquitoes disturbing your tent? At that instant, you'd wish there was a bat or two around to eat on those irksome insects and bugs.

it can't be good for the ecosystem when such a major animal group dies out so quickly
