S. bat wintering areas call hibernacula have seen white-nose syndrome losses ranging from 90 to 100 percent usually peaking several years after the disease is first seen Essig is hoping that the disease may already have peaked in the Soudan mine "but we don’t have any way to know that""It’s bad obviously But maybe it’s not quite as bad as expected" Essig said "I’m hoping we can settle in at 70 percent and maybe the rest survive But that’s just me trying to be positive"Researchers go to the mine each winter to count bats and monitor their health This year they repeated a more extensive count last conducted in 2013 before white-nose syndrome began killing bats with the total number of bats counted down 70 percentAt the Soudan mine both little brown bats and northern long-eared bats are dying from the fungus that’s already killed millions of bats in eastern statesUntil now as many as 15000 bats spent their winters in the labyrinth of underground shafts and tunnels in the mine by far the largest colony in MinnesotaWhite-nose syndrome was first observed in North America in 2007 in a cave in upstate New York The fungal disease spread fast and has now has been found in 29 states and five Canadian provincesIt’s possible some species could become "functionally extinct" within a few years according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service which has called the disease the worst wildlife health crisis in the nation’s historyThe northern long-eared bat last year was formally placed on the endangered species list as threatened offering federal protection for one of the species most affected by the disease Minnesota has seven species of bats four of which hibernate during the winter and are at greatest risk of contracting the disease It’s not clear how the disease has spread so quickly but it’s believed that it is transmitted both between bats and from one cave to another in the footwear or clothing of people who visit cavesWhite-nose syndrome is named for the fuzzy white growth of fungus observed on the faces of infected bats Infected bats show unusual behavior such as flying during the day in summer or leaving caves during their usual winter hibernation when no bugs are present for them to eat A wildlife veterinarian at the University of Wisconsin confirmed the disease kills bats by causing their bodies to overheat burning energy too quickly and at a time — in winter — when no insects are present to replace the lost calories and when it’s far too cold for the mammals to survive outside"They freeze to death pretty fast here when they come out in winter" Essig saidBats can live more than 30 years in the wild but have a very low reproductive rate which means it is very difficult for populations to rebuild after the disease hits Even if some bats survive at Soudan it would take decades to rebuild their numbers Essig notedExperts say they are considering options to try to keep the disease out of specific caves but once it enters it is impossible to eradicateThe loss of bats the only flying mammal is considered troubling because bats play an important role in many ecosystems A single bat can eat more than 1000 mosquitoes in a single night Bats are considered important agriculturally because of the huge number of insects they can keep away from crops and in forested areas for reducing the number of tree-damaging bugsWhite-nose syndrome is not known to pose a threat to humans pets livestock or other wildlifeResearch continues to bring better understanding of white-nose syndrome and scientists are beginning to see promising results that eventually could help treat affected bats But so far nothing has been found to stop or even slow the bat disease that is spreading across North AmericaIn one Vermont cave where a quarter-million bats died a few years ago from white-nose syndrome a few bats have returned Scientists are trying to find out why they survived when others did not They also are looking at why the disease doesn’t kill bats in its native Europe and they are looking at both natural bacteria and fungicides that may help repel the fungusPhillip Krulish 22 hasn’t been seen since Dec16 His mother Andrea Peltier says there haven’t been any answers as to why he disappeared but she’s doing everything she can to bring him homeFor Peltier it’s a mother’s worst nightmare: A knock on the door by police"They came and told me Friday my son’s been missing since Tuesday night between four and five in the evening" she saidPhillip Krulish was last seen in Fort Totten ND, “Your Excellency, President Buhari said the Isoko kingdom had very qualified citizens that have distinguished themselves in various professional and entrepreneurial skills in the country," Police later removed the suspect device using bomb disposal experts and a flotilla of police boats.
