If you’ve noticed more bats lately, you’re not alone.
“It’s the breeding season, so there’s a lot going on,” explains wildlife biologist Jim Pease. “They are also getting ready to migrate. Bats have to build up a large fat reserve, so they are out doing lots of flying around and eating this time of year.”
Pease says bats are also more visible this time of year because of the change in air temperature between the indoors and outdoors.
“There’s lots of air flow this time of year and bats follow that air flow,” he says.
