Bats Safety and Risk Management at Camp Mobile App

The United States is home to more than 40 varieties of bats. They eat insects harmful to agriculture, including night flying beetles and moths. However, some bats may be infected by and transmit the rabies virus. Awareness of the facts about bats and rabies can help protect yourself and your campers. This information may also promote a better understanding of bats, their contributions to the environment, and what you can do to safeguard against bat-transmitted disease. Bats are beneficial to our environment and often present in summer camp settings. To reduce bat exposure in the camp environment: Bat-proof when possible and use mosquito netting.
