The Big Brown Bat is a protected species in Ontario. They can be recognized by their golden- brown fur, black wings, their short snout, and their pointy long ears. They grow up to about 13cm in length. They eat a steady diet of mostly insects like mealworms, cockroaches, beetles, and flies. The Big Brown Bat is a nocturnal creature meaning that it is inactive during the day and active during the night. One of the signs during nighttime can be rustles, screeches, and thumps indicating that they are active. The bats are often found in colonies and generally pose no threat. They hibernate during the colder months in the winter and give birth around spring. It is important to note that they cannot be removed from homes during specific times of the month.
