White-nose syndrome kills hibernating bats for an unknown reason. It places a white fungus on these bats’ muzzles and other parts of their bodies. It can potentially lower these bats’ body fat, as well. Finally, it can change these bats’ behavior – for example, flying during the day.
The white-nose syndrome produces a white fungus that disrupts the sleep of bats. This causes them to end their hibernation earlier than usual, which is approximately mid-winter. Since there are not much insects out during winter, they don’t have much to eat. Most bats die of starvation. It isn’t the fungus that kills the bats per se, it’s the change it brings that causes all the trouble.
