Bats Play A Critical Role In Maintaining Healthy Ecosystems

A recent study published in Science estimates that insect-eating bats provide a significant pest-control service, saving the U.S. agricultural industry at least $3 billion a year. For example the 1 million little brown bats that have already died equates to between 660 and 1320 metric tons of insects that are not being eaten each year.

BATS ARE A SPECIES OF SPECIAL CONCERN

A species of particular concern is any species of WILDLIFE that does not meet the criteria of an endangered or threatened species but is particularly vulnerable and could quickly become an endangered, threatened, or extirpated species due to restricted distribution, low or declining numbers, specialized habitat needs or limits, or other factors. Special concern species are established by policy, not by regulation, and are used for planning and informational purposes; they do not have the legal weight of endangered and threatened species. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife reviews the list of special concern species at the beginning of each calendar year and, based on criteria in the Maine Endangered and Threatened Species Listing Handbook (PDF), revises the list as appropriate. The following bats are in this category:

  1. Eastern Small-footed Myotis (Myotis leibii)
  2. Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus)
  3. Northern Long-eared Myotis (Myotis septentrionalis)
  4. Red Bat (Lasiurus borealis)
  5. Hoary Bat (Lasiurus cinereus)
  6. Silver-haired Bat (Lasionycterus noctivigans)
  7. Eastern Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus subflavus)
