All bats found in North Carolina eat
insects. Because bats are nocturnal (active only at night), they feed on
nocturnal insects including mosquitoes and many important agricultural
pests. A large colony of big brown bats can eat 18 million corn
rootworms each summer, protecting harvests. A single evening bat can
dispense with 21,000 insects annually.
The most common bats found in North Carolina are the Big Brown Bat,
Eastern Pipistrelle Bat, Red Bat, Hoary Bat and the Evening Bat.
Although bats have relatively good eyesight, most depend on their
superbly developed echolocation (or sonar) system to navigate and
capture insects in the dark. By listening to the echoes reflected back
to them, they can discern objects in their path. Their echolocation
ability is so acute they can avoid obstacles no wider than a piece of
thread and capture tiny flying insects, even in complete darkness.
Bats have adapted well to our urban and suburban environments. Bats can
be found in and around buildings, bridges, and other manmade structures.
The most common place to find bats in homes are the gable vents. Gable
vents are screened vents located in peaks of gables that aid in proper
attic ventilation. Although most bats do not have rabies, those that do
may be disoriented and unable to fly, which makes it more likely that
they will come into contact with humans.

them in one's living space, as with any wild animal. Please use proper
