Hibernating Bats in Your Home in the Winter?

Home » Blog » Hibernating Bats in Your Home in the Winter?

Have you seen bats roaming in your home lately? It’s winter in New England and where else is warmer than your home for bats? Bats tend to hibernate in warm and dark places in your home in the New England area from October through April. If you see a bat, there is a potential that a colony might be found in your home.

How to Tell If There are Bats in Your Attic

If you hear squeaking sounds, they might be moving up and down behind the wall. Hibernating bats are also responsive to the temperature inside a house. If the temperature in the attic drops, they might move to another part of the house that is much warmer than where they are staying. They might move around if the temperature gets really warm, tricking them to believe that spring has arrived. Like all other mammals, they would also consistently fly out to get water.
