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 bat habitat.
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.
