What You Should Know About The Bats Of Ohio

Ohio’s Clear Creek Metro Park is known to house many different bat varieties, including the endangered species known as the northern long-eared bat. The bats use the park’s caves as shelters during Ohio’s cold winter months and leave once the weather becomes more temperate. Once they exit the caves, they seek out summer roosting locations.

In 2011, the spread of White Nose Syndrome (WNS) was confirmed in a Lawrence County mine. White Nose Syndrome is a brutal disease that has killed off millions of bats in the past several years and is spreading rapidly across North America. Ever since the initial discovery in Lawrence County, the disease has been spotted in other counties across Ohio.

Because of WNS, Ohio’s bat population has taken a drastic hit in recent years. Even then, there are enough bats to cause numerous problems for homeowners who find them living in their homes and attics. Bats do more than physical damage—they can spread any number of diseases through urine, feces, and oils.

Buckeye Wildlife Solutions Northwest division encourages you to learn about the different Bats Of Ohio. The most common species are the Little Brown Bat and the Big Brown Bat, which you’re most likely to find in your home or attic.

Bats were entering this building via the gap seen in the photo on the left. Once we removed the bats, we sealed up the gap as shown in the photo on the right.

The Bats Of Ohio Species – The Controversy

Bat Conservation International at BATCON.ORG holds that twelve different bat species live in Ohio, although different sources often claim this number to be eleven. That said, the Big Brown Bat and the Little Brown Bat are the two species you’re most likely to meet. If you have bats in your home or attic, one of these two species is the likely culprit.
