What better pest of the week for the week of Halloween, than the Little Brown Bat. While these bats are pest control agents of their own, eating millions of pounds of insects every year, they can also be pests of their own; nesting in attics, voids, and chimneys of homeowners.
The Little Brown Bat, with dark brown fur as its name suggests, is one of the most common bats in the United States. This bat’s fur glossy brown on the back; with an upper body that is slightly paler; with a grayish fur underbelly. Compared to other species of bats, the Little Brown bat is smaller in stature.
Over the last decade, it has been reported that Little Brown bat numbers have significantly declined due to White Nose Syndrome. This disease, which affects cave-dwelling bats, causes a white fungus to grow on the bat’s wings and nose. This fungus disrupts the bats hibernation pattern, causing them to wake up too early and eventually die of starvation.
