Rami Yoakum, public information officer for the Ross County Health Department, reminded local residents bats are beneficial and shouldn't be killed for the sake of being killed.
"This is mainly because they hunt mosquitoes and other insects, many of which can be harmful to farm crops," he
said."It's one of the ways they can help us out." Yoakum
said it's also important for pet owners to keep their cats and dogs vaccinated.
