Summary Rank: H

It is well documented that organochlorine pesticide residues accumulate in body tissues of insectivorous bats (Clark 1981, Bennet and Thies 2007, Geluso et al 1976).  and insectivorous diets may lead to substantial pesticide loads (Clark 1988).  In CO this species is not commonly associated with urban areas, but across much of its range it is often associated with buildings.
