why?[edit]

So do people go out to see them fly? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.158.5.179 (talk) 02:50, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

  • for the pure appreciation of nature, comparison to the related bed bug, and for beautiful breadth in coverage of the animal world. Stephen Charles Thompson (talk) 04:25, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I'm not used to posting pictures and don't know the procedure for determining copyright/fair use status, but anyone who wants pictures try the OSU fact sheet referenced in the article (has a great comparison of bedbug & batbug), and there's another one here: identify.us.com/idmybug/bed-bugs/bedbug-images/bat-bug.html You can see the batbug's hair is longer, but without magnification it would be difficult to tell.Zip-x (talk) 15:03, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
