In Maine Homes And Buildings, The Two Bat Species Most Frequently Encountered Are The “Little Brown Bat” And The “Big Brown Bat.”
In Maine homes and buildings, the two most frequently encountered bat species are commonly referred to as the “Little Brown Bat” and the “Big Brown Bat.” These bats have adapted to urban environments and often seek shelter in human structures. However, it’s important to note the prevalence of a serious threat to bat populations known as White Nose Syndrome.
White Nose Syndrome is a devastating fungal disease that affects bats during hibernation. Named after the white fungus that appears on the muzzles and wings of infected bats, this syndrome disrupts their sleep patterns and causes significant harm. It has resulted in a significant decline in bat populations across North America.
Efforts are being made to study and mitigate the impact of White Nose Syndrome on bat populations in Maine and beyond. It is crucial to raise awareness about this issue and take necessary precautions to protect bats and their habitats.
Bats With White Nosed Syndrome
White-nose syndrome, often referred to as WNS, is a disease impacting bats during their hibernation period. Its name is derived from the characteristic white fungus that can be seen on the snouts and other body areas of these dormant bats. WNS is responsible for causing substantial bat deaths not just in Maine, but throughout the US. First identified in the winter period of 2006-2007 in New York, the syndrome has quickly proliferated throughout the eastern parts of the US and Canada. The fungus causing WNS has been found in regions as far-flung as Mississippi in the South and Washington State in the West.
Little Brown Bat
The little brown bat, a species found in Maine, is now categorized as endangered. The threat to these creatures is significantly heightened by white-nose syndrome (WNS), especially in the eastern regions of North America. The little brown bat occupies three distinctive types of roosting sites: day roosts, night roosts, and hibernation roosts. These roosting sites can be located in a variety of places such as buildings, trees, beneath rocks, in wood piles, occasionally in caves, natural cavities, underneath the metal roofing of trappers’ storage areas, and in building attics. After their evening feeding, bats retire to night roosts. This behavior might serve a purpose of keeping their feces separated from day roosts, potentially making their presence less detectable to predators.
Big Brown Bat
The big brown bat, a species prevalent in Maine, is currently under threat. As one of the most abundant and geographically dispersed bat species in North America, the big brown bat is characterized by its larger size and consistently brown fur. This species has demonstrated significant adaptability to human presence, commonly setting up roosts in buildings. Predominantly feeding on beetles, the big brown bat plays a crucial role in managing insect pests.
How Bats Enter Your Maine Home Or Buildings
Bats are particularly fond of old houses and dormer spaces due to the numerous potential entry points they provide. Remarkably, bats only require a tiny crevice – roughly 3/8 by 1 inch – to gain access into a home or commercial building, and can squeeze through spaces as small as a quarter. Given this minimal space requirement, it’s crucial to ensure that all gaps around your dormers are adequately sealed. The most effective approach is to be preventive and enlist the expertise of professionals. Consider contacting Maine Bat Specialists for an inspection at 207-530-1759.
A vent plays a vital role in the architecture of a home or building’s roof. However, such vents can inadvertently provide access points for nuisance creatures such as bats, enabling them to invade your attic. Furthermore, ridge vents, which are covers running along the topmost part of a roof to shield the opening along the ridge, can serve as entryways for bats if not appropriately safeguarded with a product like the Peak Protector. Some individuals might find it puzzling to have an opening at the summit of their roof, but this venting at the ridge is a critical component of efficient roof ventilation.
Bats frequently gain access to your building due to improperly installed chimney flashing. Flashing is typically installed wherever building joints are found, such as where walls intersect the roof or a chimney, with the aim of maintaining the building’s waterproof integrity. This involves using strips of metal or another material to seal gaps, fissures, and holes. A type of flashing known as “Flashband,” which is a self-adhesive tape with an aluminum face and a bitumen backing, offers a swift, effective, and budget-friendly method of sealing buildings to prevent bat intrusion.
In the process of bat-proofing a building, our bat specialists are tasked with identifying the openings in your home that bats exploit for ingress and egress. Bats often take advantage of holes that have been created by squirrels, birds, or other rodents. To ascertain whether bats are using these points for access and departure, we conduct a “bat watch.” During the morning and evening, we position an observer on each side of the building where these openings are found, and vigilantly monitor for any bat activity, such as entering or leaving the structure.
