Colonizing bats- Appearance, Biology, Life cycle, Habitat, diet , behaviour and reproduction
Many animal activists believe that colonizing bats are unjustly treated because they possess some huge ecological values
whereas, bats have been known to cause some of the most significant damages to homes, because they move in huge numbers
and their colonies are extremely difficult to handle.
Bats are the only mammals that fly, they feed on blood and they are able to transmit various deadly diseases. As
bad as they may appear, bats have been found to help in controlling the activities of crops-destroying insects and
pests. There are over 900 species of colonizing bats in the world, while other San Bernardino bird control believe there are more than a thousand
of such , hence bats make up about 1/5th of the total mammal population in the world. Bats are nocturnal in nature- they
sleep during the day and are more awake in the night. Bats can fly for more than 50 kilometers just to find food , and they
normally sleep upside down during the day especially on trees and roof of San Bernardino raccoon removal buildings.
Most colonizing bats are light brown in colour, however , their brown colour turns darker as they mature and age.
There are two main types of bats, The Micro or smaller bats and the mega-bats ( larger mammal bats). Bats generally belong
to the Chiroptera sub-order, and larger bats can weigh about 2.2 pounds and growing up to 1.8 meters in height and length.
Most colonial bats have light brown colour, with their fore arms extending by about 1.61 inches, and possess wingspan of about
11 inches. The foot of a typical colonial bat measures about 1cm. Bats belong to the animal kingdom- Animalia, and Mammalia class.
Most bats have wingspan of less than 1 meter and the smallest bat in the world is the “bumblebee” which weighs about 0.2 pounds.
Colonial bats are often found in and around human San Bernardino snake removal residences all around the world, however some enjoy taking shelter around large
trees. The big brown bats and he night bats are the commonest species that cause significant damages in the roofs as well as some
other compartments of homes. The bat species that find nest in the tree or on the tree barks are not as destructive as those who
inhabit homes. Some species of bats such as red bats and keen bats only migrate at certain seasons of the year.
Bats have also been found in caves, barns and mines, they hide under any space that provide them shelter from predators, and
they live in groups of hundreds or thousands.
Bats have varieties of foods, and depending on the specie of bat, most bats will consume small insects, flowers, nectar, whole
fruits, leaves and pollens. While megabats eat fruits and some species even suck on blood, microbats consume insects. The Malayan
flying bat is one of the bat species with big appetite- it can consume foods as much as half of its entire body weight. Vampire bats
that suck on blood can eat foods twice their weight, and twice in a day. It is believed that the typical brown colonizing bat can eat
as many as 1,000 insects in one hour, while some bats like squeezing fruits and sucking their juices in their mouths.
The vampire-shape bats can suck blood from animals such as deer and cattle by making a V-shape cut on the skin of the animals and
licking their blood slowly. Most bats can catch San Bernardino rodent extermination insect and get them stuck through their thick saliva before swallowing them.
Colonizing bats have been found to possess certain San Bernardino rat control habits that are rarely found in other animals. In most cases, there are
usually separate hibernation sites for matured male and female bats, they swarm around in large numbers and perform special
acrobatics to attract each other. The sexually matured females often do most of the searching and the breeding pairs often
go to secluded spots where they mate in private. Mating in bats occur mostly in warm summer months, while the females store
male sperms until the next spring seasons. The gestation period in female bats is between 40 days and 6 months. Female bats
often give birth to a single pup bat at a time, and such a pup normally weighs about a fourth of the size of the mother and
just like other mammals, young pups rely on milk from their mothers to survive.
Unlike some other animals, most bats do not cause destruction to their nests, however, they can infest places with their
droppings and foods , and it is believed that bats can easily spread certain San Bernardino bat removal diseases when they bite or when humans or pets
come in contact with their droppings or urine. Bats may be difficult to detect in the day time because they are only active
in the night.
