Habits, Behavior & Reproduction
Bats provide a significant benefit to agriculture because they feed on pests that often damage food crops. There are over 1,000 species of bats worldwide. Since bats are active at night, most people who have bats in their home only hear scratching or chirping at night when the bats leave to feed.
Bats mate once a year, with an incubation period ranging between 40 days (roughly a month and a half) to 6 months. The number of babies per litter varies. Young bats don’t stray from their mothers until adolescence, and the mothers are naturally very protective of their young.
Bats hibernate during the winter, and they typically start looking for the perfect place to stay warm as soon as the weather becomes cold. Unfortunately for many homeowners, the perfect place is often an attic.
