The Baton is a simple but versatile “frequency division” bat detector that allows the listener to hear the ultrasound produced by echolocating bats. The Bat Baton is sensitive to frequencies from 20 kHz to 120 kHz. It has a division factor of 10, meaning the sounds of a 50kHz bat is reduced to only 5kHz—well within the range of human hearing!

You will see the bat suddenly \u0026amp; dramatically change direction during this “buzz”... that’s the moth trying to evade capture and the bat making split-second course corrections!
