Posted Thu Apr 3 2008: from Litchfield County Times (CT):
Bat die-off now found in Connecticut
Dr. Davis said that there is little data available on bats, which is making it difficult for scientists to determine cause and effect. "They don't normally do bat surveys every year in every cave," he said, "mainly because when you go in, you wake them up and they burn up fat with nothing to eat. This syndrome could have started earlier than two years ago -- we just don't know. The real problem is there are no in-depth studies of bat biology. There are several labs working as hard as they can and they find parasites, they find bacteria on the fur or skin -- but no one knows if this is normal because there is no data on a healthy population. We haven't found any toxins; we haven't found any smoking gun. Everything is so inter-connected. There are so many different elements that could be attributed to something else. No one knows for sure."

Everything is so inter-connected, indeed: it'll be a banner season for mosquitos, moths and their larval caterpillars, flies, and so much more. Not a lot of bees, though...
