Bats in Iowa

March 13, 2010 by  

Keeping screens on windows and doors will prevent bats from directly flying into the house. Attached garages should have the doors shut at night. Make sure screens are in tact on attic screens and lattice areas. New roofs are sometimes necessary if wood and siding is in bad shape. Bats will fly in and out of structures at sunset and then continue throughout the night as they feed on insects. Bats will not fly in and out in the winter as insects are not there to feed on. In spring, nighttime temps need to reach around 40 degrees to begin feedings for bats.
