Recent Press Release
Health Unit Raises Awareness About Bats and Rabies
Bats are beneficial to the ecosystem, but they can carry diseases such as rabies and histoplasmosis, which can affect humans and animals. They may also transmit distemper and mange to household pets. Bats are nocturnal animals and feed most actively two or three hours following sunset. They are efficient insect controllers eating about three times their body weight. Bats typically have their babies in June and come August many of the young bats are looking for their own roosting sites. Many bats will roost and hibernate in attics.
Preventing West Nile Virus Infections
The Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit would like to inform our citizens that we have started our mosquito surveillance program once again. This program started the last week of June will be carried through until the end of September. Should you see one of our traps in your neighbourhood, please do not disturb it. These traps are not mosquito control units, so they have no value to property owners, but they are important in identifying mosquitoes and providing a warning that disease causing mosquitoes are present in a given area.
