There are 15 species of bats in Oregon. Bats are the only mammal
that flies. Bats are nocturnal and hunt at night using echolocation.
Echolocation is when they make high-pitched sounds and then they listen for the
echo to find the location of objects or prey, which includes very small
insects. Oregon bats either migrate south for the winter or stay in Oregon and
hibernate until spring comes around.
Mother bats find dry warm places to have their pups in
the spring. Also it is a myth that bats are blind, when in fact they actually
have pretty good eye sight. An adult bat can beat around 1,000 insects per hour
and they only eat insects. A pup
bat can begin to fly between 2 weeks to 5 weeks of age.
Bats can be beneficial in keeping insect population lower, but
can always spread disease via biting or in there guano. If you have bats in your
house it is important to have a Professional Oregon Wildlife Control Officer
remove the bats and seal off your house.
