Net to trap hematophagous bats

Batnet® anti-bat mesh for protecting livestock, horses, and other animals against vampire attacks

The BATNET® Net to trap hematophagous bats allows for the protection of animals from vampire attacks. Indeed, thanks to this special mesh, birds can be caught. Preventing injuries to livestock and the transmission of diseases such as rabies.

Hematophagous bats

In tropical areas, hematophagous bats are a real nuisance. The mesh for catching bats is use to block the passage of bats and prevent them from biting cattle, pigs, birds, and other domestic animals. There are frugivorous bats that feed on fruits, piscivores that eat fish, and hematophagous bats that suck blood. The bat control mesh proves effective in deterring these predators from fruit crops. They can also be place over fish farming tanks. Finally, in livestock farming, they are install in pens to protect animals from vampire bats. Vampire bats, or bloodsuckers (Desmodus rotundus species), are abundant in Mexico, Central, and South America. They live in large colonies ranging from 300 to thousands of individuals.

Vampire bats prey on birds and mammals, including wild boar and deer, domestic pigs, and rabbits. Due to the wounds, animals suffer from anemia, resulting in decreased productivity. Furthermore, the wounds can become infected with pathogenic microorganisms. For example, fly larvae can develop in the wounds, and the animal may die within a few days. When hematophagous bats attack, they not only bite the neck but also the legs. Also when cows are lying down, they bite the animal all over the body. When they are standing, they bite the legs or the head. They even bite the heels of chicken legs when they are on their perches. Apart from causing severe infections, bloodsucking bats are vectors of rabies. In some areas, they have become the main transmitters of rabies. Causing enormous losses of cattle, horses, chickens, and other animals.

Livestock farmers consider vampire bats a pest because they contaminate the animals’ water with their feces and because they transmit rabies.

Anemia in cattle caused by hematophagous bats

Bats attack the same animal night after night and return to the same wound. The small wounds caused by bats on ears, necks, and legs go unnoticed because the saliva of these animals contains a biological anesthetic. Due to the consequent hemorrhages from bat bites, animals show drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, muscle tremors, and very pale mucous membranes. Breathing becomes rapid, and if the bleeding persists, it can lead to death. Blood disorders in cattle, sheep, and horses primarily affect productivity due to the depletion of protein and iron reserves.

Net to trap hematophagous bats to prevent the transmission of bovine paralytic rabies

The anti-bat mesh or BATNET® net to trap hematophagous bats is an effective method for trapping vampire bats. It is widely used in livestock farming to prevent animals from being bitten, weakened, and becoming targets for infections and viruses. Rabies, a lethal infection for both animals and humans, is generally associate with bats. Indeed, these South American species transmit the disease to livestock, killing thousands of animals each year. In some cases, the virus is directly transmit from bats to humans. More often, bats infect other animals, through which the virus is transmit to humans.

When an animal contracts the Rabies virus, behavioral disorders such as rage and hyperactivity appear, along with an increase in temperature. Later on, ataxic behavior, reduce sensitivity, and progressive paralysis are observ. Finally, 4-5 days after the first symptoms appear, the death of the animal occurs inevitably as there is no therapy. The mentioned species infect animals through bites by contact of infected saliva with mucous membranes. This dangerous fatal disease can be prevent by preventing birds from accessing livestock areas thanks to bat control mesh. Don’t risk your cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and pigs; install a mist net.

Bats are also dangerous for people

Bats are mammals that carry and transmit the most viruses that can also infect humans. In a study published in the journal Nature, researchers from the EcoHealth Alliance organization have compiled all known viruses that infect both humans and other mammals into a database, revealing that bats are the animals from which overflow occurs most frequently, which is the passage of a pathogen from one species to another.

Features of the net to trap hematophagous bats

The net to trap hematophagous bats is made of high-strength polyethylene. The most common color is black, which adapts to all locations, and its size depends on the extent of the area to be protect, being able to be cut to the desire size. The net to trap hematophagous bats is very versatile, easy to handle, transport, and install, and adapts to all environments. Catching bats with BATNET® mesh

Bats can also spread rabies to people, but the mist netting prevents bats from attacking livestock and farmers.

How is the bat control net installed?

Vampire bats are generally find in forests or in sheltered areas such as farms.

Mist nets can be use in two ways:

  1. Identifying places where animals usually gather – for example, water ponds where they could gather to eat insects – or generally pass – for example, a corridor in the forest – and installing the mist net in the area to catch them. These nets are made of nylon threads and are imperceptible and easily confused with vegetation. Being very flexible and lightweight, they can easily be place anywhere. When bats hit the net, they collide and fall, getting trap without being able to escape.
  2. Placing the nets around the pens, where the animals are find to protect them. They are hung 1 meter above the ground and orient towards the nearest forest.
.

When bats are trap, it must be determine whether they are of the vampire type. Otherwise, they are release, as well as any other bird that may have fallen into the net. Then, a rodenticide is apply to the back of the animal so that other colony members can lick it and die. To install the mesh, you only need to place it vertically, extend it, and tension it with several parallel threads or tensioners and tie it to poles at each end or trees in the area. It is not necessary to bury the poles; they can be hold with the same ropes or tensioners to keep them fix.

It is possible to install the mesh in forests, at the most opportune height. Thanks to a pulley system, they can be raise and lowered. It is preferable to place them at dusk when animals are most active and when there is no wind or rain so that bats do not notice their presence. After being use, it can be apply again after being properly disinfected.
