About Illinois Bats: Illinois bat control problems can
sometimes get out of control. The ET Pest Control units works great
repelling the Illinois Bat. They
simply plug-in to any house hold outlet or they can be plugged-in on the
end of an extension cord to get into tight and confined areas. The
common species of bats found in Illinois are the Red Bat, Silver-Haired
Bat, the Big Brown Bat and the Little Brown Bat.
Twelve species of bats spend at least part of their
lives in Illinois; two are on the federal and state endangered species
lists. While they may be found throughout the state, the Illinois and
Mississippi River Basins and the cave regions of Southern Illinois
probably have the highest bat populations because of the abundance of
Both big brown bats and little brown bats
are common throughout Illinois. Caves provide their winter homes,
whereas hot attics or hollow trees are summer retreats. These bats form
summer colonies which may number from a dozen to hundreds. The big brown
bat is two to three times larger than its smaller relative.
The Red Bat and Hoary Bat are found throughout
Illinois. They roost in the foliage of trees in the summer where they
are rarely detected. However, they are often observed feeding at night
around street lights in town. The Hoary Bat, less common than the Red
Bat, is the largest bat in Illinois.
Other Illinois bat species include the Keen's bat,
southeastern bat, evening bat, silver-haired bat and southeastern
big-eared bat. These species are generally of limited distribution or
relatively uncommon in the state.
Bats are the only mammals that fly. They have eyes and can see even
though they are active only at night. Bats have developed a
sophisticated "sonar" or echolocation system which helps them avoid
obstacles in their paths and find food in total darkness. A series of
ultrasonic sounds emitted by the bats creates echoes which are picked up
by their sensitive ears. Illinois' bats feed exclusively on insects. A
single bat may consume 3,000 insects in one night including corn borer
and cutworm moths, and mosquitoes. Because of their feeding habits, bats
are one of our foremost allies in controlling night and flying insects.
