Bat Maternity Season:
The exact dates of bat maternity season in the U.S. vary according to the climate. Warmer states have an earlier maternity season, and cooler states have a slightly later maternity season. The dates for Michigan vary between early June and mid August.. By the end of the bat maternity season, all of the pups born in the spring will be able to fly, and they will no longer be left in the roost at night while the mothers feed.
Little Brown Bat (Myotis) Maternity Season: June 1 – August 15
Big Brown Bat Maternity Season: June 1 – August 15
Pay Attention To Your Timing:
There are lots of reasons why you should never do bat exclusions during the maternity season. The first reason is that it is illegal. Bats are a protected species. If your caught removing bats during the maternity season without a special permit, then you can be prosecuted and fined.
Another reason is that it is inhumane. The babies are unable to get food because they cannot fly. Removing the mothers from the roost would cause the babies to starve and die. This would be cruel and inhumane, and can also cause bigger problems for you.
Mother bats may be relentless in their search for another way into your home or building to get to their babies. They could get in through gaps or cracks that might still be on the roof. They might also try getting in through open doors and windows. Imagine a colony of mother bats rushing through your open door desperately searching for their babies!
When the babies get hungry enough, they will try to crawl down walls and into the living areas of the home or building. They are very small, and they can easily get through cracks and gaps. As they are searching for food, they end up spread out through your home or building. Additionally, many are likely to die within the walls as they try to find food, causing yet another issue for you.
To eliminate all of the potential problems, and avoid prosecution and fines, you should wait until the end of the maternity season to remove the bats.
