Wings the resemble broad webbed hands – Wingspan ranging 9-15 inches Short legs Sharp claws Large ears Light tan or yellowish to dark brown and black in color Small eyes (Bats have poor eyesight) Habitat Bats roost as a group in ceilings of caves, hollow trees, buildings, and attics, sometimes in colonies numbering in the millions! Outside lights, pools, ponds, and other bodies of water will attract bats due to the high quantity of bugs. Bats are nocturnal and will leave their roosting spot around dusk to find food. Bat Control Entry and Damage Bats in homes are commonly found within attics and barns, as they enjoy dark and safe areas to roost. Bats can enter homes through very small crevices and very rarely create damages upon entry. Occasionally, bats may enter your home through open windows or doors as they learn how to fly. Bats and humans generally coexist together peacefully. The main issue that residents face when dealing with a bat control problem, is the damage accumulated. A colony of bats can create terrible smells, stains, and a great health risk. The fungal spores harbored within the guano can make you and your family seriously ill.
