Evening Bat Nycticeius humeralis usually has a glossy fur of dark brown, but may also have a bronze to reddish tint. It has short dark medium sized ears and the muzzle is broad, unfurred and nearly black. This species closely resembles the big brown bat, but is smaller in size and a very commonly found species.
The evening bat can be found as far north as Southern Michigan and are found in open areas of lower elevations found from Nebraska to Pennsylvania, South to Texas , Florida and the North Eastern parts of Mexico.
Twin bat pups are usually born June and July each year.
Evening bats are insectivores and nightly prey on beetles, planthoppers, true bugs, flies, mosquitoes, moths, flying termites, flying ants and other insects.
Their bat colony sizes range from just a few to around seventy or so bats. They roost behind loose bark and the crevices and cavities of dead trees. On a few occasions they have been found in Spanish moss. They also have been reported to roost in buildings, bridges, the brackets on utility poles, and bat houses.
