Nashville - The Berrien County School Board is battling bats.

About a year ago, administrators at Berrien Primary noticed bats hanging around campus.

Workers removed one group found nesting in the rafters, but a short time later they returned to their roost.

The removal and cleaning process recently started again.

No students were exposed to the bats, but two maintenance workers are being treated for bites.  "They themselves could not ascertain if they were bitten but we'd rather be safe then sorry. We sent them to Tifton and as a precaution they are getting the shots for rabies," says Superintendent Mike Bochenko.

Workers thoroughly cleaned the school.

Members of the school board say they hope the bats find a new nesting ground and don't return.
