Bat babies are often to referred to as pups. The maternity season for bats will vary from state to state as the climate changes. The warmer regions have an early maternity season, whereas the colder regions have a later maternity season. In Michigan, the common species that we find in homes are know as big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) and little brown bats (Myotus lucifugus).
Brown Bat Maternity Season in Michigan & Indiana
The brown bat often forms maternity colonies in attics, barns and buildings during the spring and summer months. When it comes to Michigan and Indiana, the maternity season ranges from late May / early June until late July / early August. Young bats grow quickly and are able to fly within about three weeks. A brown bat gives birth to one pup per maternity season.
Can You Remove Baby Bats? No…
During the maternal season, you cannot remove bats. Because bats are a federally protected species, you cannot evict them until the babies can take their first flight. However, a professional wildlife removal company can start the process with a bat inspection and prepare for the eviction when the time is right. It’s important to respect this protected species and follow the rules such as leaving baby bats alone and allowing female bats to return and feed their pups.
