Australia: a town is "under siege" by bat invasion

100,000s of bats fly in this town. Some tree branches collapsed because of weight of bats.

Sounds like the fat bats need fitbits.

Town needs to put up loudspeakers and broadcast ultrasound frequency that interferes with the bats' echolocation.

Great idea. What town wouldn't want a town-wide carpet of wounded bats?

I like bats. They do a fine job of gobbling up mosquitoes. They are always welcome here.

They have to do a cleanup anyway, but most bats would just leave.
I like bats, but in usual quantities like a couple dozen in an area at a time.

Fruit bats are large enough, for sure.
