SHARE HEALTH CONCERNS STOP THE SALE OF BAT GUANO

The mayor stopped selling bat guano because of health concerns, but officials say small amounts of the natural fertilizer pose little danger.

Mayor Jay DeYoe stopped filling orders for the bat droppings this week after a Delaware woman warned that the brown, gritty substance could spread the fungal disease histoplasmosis."I got to thinking that if there was any possibility we might be doing something that might be hurting somebody, we ought to check it out," DeYoe said Thursday.
