BAT FACTS


There are 18 species of bats in Florida, all insectivores.

A single gray bat can eat 3,000 insects in one night.

There are 39 bat species in the United States (36 of them eat insects, 3 are nectar lovers).

40% of bats in the U.S. are endangered, threatened, or species of special concern.

There are about 1,000 species of bats worldwide (70% of them are the bug-chasing kind).

Bats can live up to 20 years.

Bats are the only mammals that truly fly.

Their fastest recorded speed is a big brown bat flying at 40 mph.

Their order name, Chiroptera, means "flying hand".

Unlike birds, which flap their wings up and down, bats "swim" through the air.

Their wing beats may be as rapid as 20 per second.

Bats use their echolocation, or sonar, to find insects and avoid obstacles at night.

The tiniest mammal of all is a bat the size of a bumble bee.

The big fruit bats, called flying foxes, don't have sonar, and may have wing spans of up to six feet.

There are no fruit bats or vampire bats in the United States.

Vampire bats live only in Latin America. They feed entirely on blood, mostly from chickens, turkeys, ducks, and geese, and sometimes from pigs, cattle, and horses.

Most bats have one pup per year, sometimes two.

Red bats have 3 to 4 offspring at a time. They are the only bats with 4 nipples.

Bat pups are born feet first (unique among mammals) in the spring, and can fly within 6 to 8 weeks.
Important info



Bats are never harmed during our bat removal process.

All bats in Florida are protected.

Bat maternal season is between April 15th and August 15th. It is unlawful to exclude bats during this time as juveniles still unable to fly may be orphaned and left to die.
