Bats are incredibly useful animals when it comes to the eco-systems of local flora and fauna and thus are protected in Ontario. The most common species of bats that people often find in and around their properties are the Big Brown Bat and the Small Brown Bat. These two species of bats belong to the “Specially Protected Mammals in Ontario” along with the Eastern Pipistrelle Bat, Hoary Bat, Least (Small-footed) Bat, Northern Long-eared Bat, Red Bat, and the Silver-haired Bat.
The Small Brown Bat is special considering that it is classified as an endangered species under Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act. Even though bats are relatively harmless animals, they are still wild animals. Their behavior can be unpredictable at all times. Bats often fly into attics and will damage your property.
