Danbury wildlife control tip of the month:
About Colonizing Bats: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Colonizing bats got its name due to their manner to live in colonies. Colonizing bats include several species, but the most
common are two: Mexican free-tailed bats and Evening bats.
Mexican free-tails are the most abundant in the Danbury animal control wildlife. Bats are small, around 3, 5 inches long with wings span of 8 inches.
The weight is around 15 grams. Free-tails have small bodies covered with hair which color varies from dark brown to grey. Very
long tail, broad ears and bristles on their face are the distinctive features of this mammal.
Mexican free-tails are prevalent in dark caves. Also, free-tail bats are usually occupying Danbury pest control buildings and houses with dark corners
and voids. They are mostly active in late mornings and in warm weather. In the night bats hunt for food, which usually are various
insects: dragonflies, moths, ants, flies, wasps and mosquitoes? Actually, these bats are responsible controlling the amounts of the
It is important to mention that free-tail bats are experienced travelers, they travel around 50 kilometers to search for food. Also
they can reach very high altitudes (around 3000 m). The breeding of these Danbury wildlife removal species start in early in the spring when females gather
into maternity roosts. The rut for females occurs only once a year. Once pregnant, female gives a birth to only one young.
The life span of the Mexican free-tails is around 10 years. Predators such as barn owls, red-tailed hawks, American kestrels are the
most dangerous for the population of bats.
Another popular species is the Evening Bat which is quite similar to Mexican free-tailed bats. However, they do have some different Danbury animal trapping qualities.
The Evening bat is a little bit larger than a free-tailed, their wingspan is around 10 inches long, but they do weigh also up to 15 grams. Their
body is dark brown while their ears and wings are black. The Evening bats roost in large groups inside tree crevices, cypress trees and in larger
buildings. They rarely enter caves but they like living in the attics. Differently than free-tailed bats, the Evening bats start breeding earlier
in the season. Mothers give birth in mid-April to two young offspring instead of one. Their lifespan is also around 10 years, however due to Danbury exterminator losses
of wooden barns and old buildings their population is declining and there are less and less of the Evening Bats around.
The Evening bats are most active at night in warmer days and also control the population of insects such as Japanese beetles, beetles, June bugs, stinkbugs and moths.
