The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection reminds everyone to have a green Halloween! https://www.instagram.com/p/BpnERXNgR00/?utm_source=ig_twitter_share&igshid=1fyooxcpyzwy

Happy #Halloween! Please take some time to read this blog on "Haunted Havens for Bats" by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region. The second part mentions Connecticut's historic Old New-Gate Prison in East Granby, which now serves as an important hibernaculum for bats. #BatWeek

Boo! Happy Halloween! You never know what scary things might pop out of your #firewood! #FirewoodMonth

Halloween is a great time to dispel myths about bats. Rather than harbingers of doom, bats are crucial for healthy ecosystems and provide tremendous economic benefits to agriculture and forestry by controlling insects. Learn more at https://go.usa.gov/xPmfy. Several species of bats that call Connecticut home have been devastated by white-nose syndrome, so much so that in 2015 three species were listed as endangered on Connecticut’s List of Endangered, Threatened and Special Concern Species. These species are the little brown bat (pictured), northern long-eared bat (also federally threatened), and the tri-colored bat.

National Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, October 27th. Unwanted medications (prescription and over-the-counter products) should not be flushed down the toilet or sink! Disposing of them in this way causes water pollution and has adverse effects on septic systems, sewage treatment plants, fish and other aquatic wildlife. Trace amounts of all kinds of drugs have also been found in some drinking water supplies because they pass through septic systems and sewage plants untreated. Find a collection location at https://takebackday.dea.gov/ Want more info on this topic?

The CT Agricultural Experiment Station, in cooperation with the USDA APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine, announced that a single dead adult spotted lanternfly has been detected and confirmed from a private residence in Farmington, CT. The insect appears to have been a hitchhiker that was likely transported on a vehicle from Pennsylvania. No other spotted lanternflies were found on the property. However, some additional survey is planned in the area to confirm that no other spotted lanternflies are present. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive sap-feeding planthopper that was discovered in Berks County, PA, in 2014. Native to China, India, and Vietnam, this insect attacks many hosts and has the potential to severely impact CT's farm crops, as well as a number of tree species. Early detection is important! The public is urged to report potential sightings of this invasive pest to CAES.StateEntomologist@ct.gov. More info is at https://go.usa.gov/xPUbe.

Not everyone gets an opportunity to take a photo like this!
