Where Do Bats Live

Bats live in every state of the union and survive in a variety of habitats. In the United States, the mammals favor temperate climates. However, they can live wherever a steady supply of food exists. Bat habitats include tropical forests, woodlands, open fields, river valleys, both suburban and urban communities, and even deserts.

The states with the most bat species include:

  1. Texas
  2. Arizona
  3. California
  4. New Mexico 
  5. Nevada 
  6. Colorado

Roosting requirements usually depend on the species, but caves, trees, hollowed logs, rock crevices, and human dwellings serve as excellent habitats.

Bat Infestations in Homes

When natural bat habitats overlap with residential areas, conflicts arise. Bats take up residence in barns, sheds, and other outbuildings, as well as in attics. They find their way inside through gaps in roofs or uncovered chimneys.

Once bat colonies are established, resulting problems range from general noise and smell nuisances to the heightened risk of contracting illnesses. In order to properly remove bat populations from homes, contact professional wildlife removal specialists.

The professionals at Critter Control have the knowledge and equipment to properly eliminate bats.
