Ah! I found the article that referred to the winter 'hot boxes'- sorry.
While I am not a bat biologist, there's no reason to think that bats will use these 'hot boxes' unless they are imprisoned in them- after all, bats seek specific temperature/humidity conditiLons for specific needs. In order to stifle Gd growth, you'd need to have temps, at minimum, in the hi 50s/lo 60s- Gd growth stops at 70f, I recall.
I'd be curious about any prior research that shows that these bats will hibernate at these higher temps.
