Effect of Acoustic Lure on Bat Captures

In order to increase the capture rate of bats during mist-netting, and in particular, Indiana bats, Copperhead Consulting has been testing the effectiveness of acoustic lure playback at net sites. The majority of the testing has been conducted at Ft. Knox in north-central Kentucky, but has been used on other projects in Kentucky and in Tennessee. The lure appears to be effective but additional data collection is needed to support the findings.
