Are bats sensitive to sound disturbance?

As we all know, bats are very sensitive to noise disturbance, particularly when in a maternity roost. Imagine my surprise then, to find a pipistrelle maternity roost right behind the speakers at an outward bounds centre games room. They could clearly be seen and the droppings were spilling onto the seats underneath. The speakers were used weekly for the groups’ disco.  SP.
