Delaware Bat Facts
Bats are very beneficial to the environment and Delaware is home to many species. Delaware’s bats are divided into two main groupings based on lifestyle. “Cave bats” spend their winters hibernating in caves, and often form colonies to roost and raise their young in the summer. Colonies can be found in hollow trees, or buildings and other man-made structures. “Tree bats” are generally more solitary in nature, roost under pieces of bark alone or in small groups, and spend their time foraging in the upper canopy levels of the forest. All these things make tree bats difficult to study.
They have been known to migrate long distances during the spring and fall. The most common bats found in buildings throughout Delaware are the Little Brown Bats. This common house bat is often found in buildings, homes, attics that are near waterways. This is where they forage for mosquitos. A bat can consume 600 mosquitos an hour. This makes them very valuable to have has a neighbor, just not as a roommate!
Common places for bats to form colonies in manmade structures are in attics, under eaves, siding, and shingles. If you discover you have a bat problem call our Bat Experts of Animal Control Solutions today, we have solutions to all types of bat situations within Delaware.
Delaware Snake Facts
Delaware is home to over a dozen snake species with two of these species being venomous. Venomous snakes, the copperhead and the timber rattlesnake, both considered pit vipers. The common garter snake is considered mildly venomous. There are a dozen or more other snakes in Delaware, generally considered to be clinically nonvenomous.
The first normal reaction to a snake encounter is to kill it, but the fact is snakes are a beneficial part of our ecosystem. These reptiles are an important factor in controlling mice and rat population, in addition to being a good food source for Hawks and other larger predators.
Snake populations have been decreasing throughout Delaware and other states. It is believed this decrease is related to snake collection for hides, snake killings, and habitat destruction. While killing snakes is not a permitted activity, they can be taken when classified as a nuisance species. If you discover a snake in the home contact the professionals at Wildlife Pros to have it Safely and Humanely removed.
