Nine species of bats are commonly found in Missouri, but they are most numerous in the dense forests and abundant caves of the Ozarks. Six of these species spend at least part of the year roosting in caves. The others roost mainly in trees. Only three species regularly roost in buildings (big brown bat, little brown bat, evening bat). The little brown bat is a brown, mouse-sized bat that occurs throughout Missouri. It hibernates in small numbers in Ozark caves during winter.
In summer, it sometimes takes up residence in attics and buildings. The big brown bat is a large bat, perhaps twice the size of the little brown bat, but still weighs only half an ounce. This species lives throughout Missouri and roosts by itself or in small groups in caves. Big brown bats commonly roost in buildings, where they sometimes hibernate. The evening bat is present in Missouri during the spring, summer and early fall. It migrates south in winter. It roosts in buildings in summer. Missouri bats consume literally tons of insects in our state each year and are one of our best allies in controlling insect numbers.
