Bats are amazing creatures in so many ways. It is common for people to get a bat in their house, and then it disappears. What happened? Do you think that you only have one bat, and this was an accident?
People ask, "How long can a bat survive in my house?"
Sthe Big Brown Bat prefers to live in houses - the same houses that people occupy. Yes, you read that correctly. Bats live in walls and attic spaces because they make great places to hibernate or raise their young.
Occasionally, a bat will accidentally get inside a home and are discovered in the bedroom or basement. People may wonder, how long can the bat live in the house? Bats have an uncanny way of getting out of tight quarters. Think about it, bats are usually associated with caves. A house is much easier to navigate. Bats can get into cold air returns (which are often not lined) and get into walls. Also, they only need 1/4 inch gap to squeeze through an attic hatch....or up the wall from the basement.
You may be getting bats inside the home on a regular basis and not even realize it.
