Big Brown Bat


Brown Bats In Mass

The bat species most commonly found in Massachusetts homes are the big brown bat.  Brown bats are one of the most common bat species. They can be found almost anywhere; in cities, suburbia and woodlands. Little brown and big brown bats will roost in trees, caves, sewers, under bridges and inside buildings.

Bats in The House

The problem with this species is that they are especially fond of taking up residence in our homes. Once the colony moves in they usually stay for good until a proper bat exclusion is performed to force them out.   

Note:  If you get a bat inside your house, it does mean that a colony of bats are living inside your attic or walls. Bats do not fly inside your house at night unless they are already living inside the upper roof area.  Brown bats only go out at night to feed on flying insects and they are not looking for flying insects to eat in your bedroom.  If one is seen inside your living area, it got lost going in, or, out of your house.

Note: 6/10/2012  Calls from Massachusetts customers with bats in the house have increased this year. The warm weather may have helped the population.

Bat Houses - Will they use them?

Bat houses generally don't work. This is because there location is the most important determining factor if bats will use the bat house. If its to low they won't use it. If its on a tree and there are raccoons around , they won't use it. If its painted black and its mounted in direct sunlight, it'll be to hot and they won't use it. The bat house temperature has to be right and the bats have to feel safe for them to use it.
