General Bat Information For The State Of Maine
Bat Problems In Your Home?
So, you have Problems with bats getting into your home? Well, in Maine that’s a very common occurrence for many homeowners. The majority of bat infestations and encounters occur in summer months in the state of Maine. And, bats will usually infest the attic area of a house. Also, they can trickle down into the living quarters at certain times. So, if you find a bat inside your home then it’s a good idea to have your home inspected. And, THE REASON YOU WANT DO THIS is you want to determine if there’s a bat colony present.
Maine’s Most Common Bats
In Maine, the most common bats getting inside a home will be big brown bats or little brown bats. Also, big brown bats can also overwinter in human dwellings. And, they show up inside during the coldest months of the long Maine winter. Our little brown bats live in summer cottages on lakes and ponds throughout the state. Also, do you know little brown bats in Maine have their populations harmed by white-nose syndrome? And, this disease has spread throughout the Pine Tree State. Now, their sightings have dwindled to a near nothing level. But, there are still colonies that have survived the white-nose fungal infection. And, we deal with these colonies every summer.
A Bat Resurgence In Maine
We have seen a resurgence of bat-related problems in the state during the last several years. And, big brown bats seem to be getting into homes where the little brown bats lived. Also, this trend has followed suit in other states like New York. For a while, the New York little brown’s populations crashed. And, years later, the big brown bats started picking up the slack of bat-related problems. If you think a bat is in your home please call Mid Coast Wildlife specialists.
