Bat guano consists largely of saltpeter used in making (potassium nitrate, available online for US$4 a pound.) It's even said it prolonged the Civil War. "During the conflict, nearly every substantial Gray Bat cave in the South was harvested for its guano, and the Confederacy relied on these caves as a source for saltpeter long after supply lines were cut off."*
