Getting Rid Of Bats

The Big Brown Bat is a common bat involved in nuisance wildlife removal, because like the Little Brown Bat, it’s a colonizing mammal that likes to live in buildings.  It looks fairly similar to the Little Brown Bat, except it’s …bigger.  It has a wingspan of maybe 10 inches and it weighs 5/8 oz, which while small, is quite a bit larger than your average colonizing bat.

The colony sizes are generally smaller than those of other species.  A colony might consist of ten to twenty members, whereas the Little Browns or Freetails can form colonies of thousands of members.

Regardless of colony size, the behavior is the same.  They form maternity colonies of females, they give birth to young in the summer, they leave their roost at night to catch insects on the wing, and sleep during the day.  They are controlled via exclusion methods – one-way removal devices that let them fly out but not fly back in.  They are valuable creatures that should not be killed.
