They live off the stragglers that don't make it back before dark.  Those
used to be the old and infirm bees, which was great for the bee colonies as
well as the bats performing a herd culling function.  With the introduction
of Bayer's nicitinoid insecticides, now the stragglers are more of the
poisoned bees, which is bad for the bees and the bats.

I'd like to raise the topic of whether health professionals should be
expected to be financially responsible for negligence.  Any objections?
