THE INDIANA MYOSIS BAT – Myotis sodalis
Indiana bats area small, lightweight bat species native to the eastern United States. They weigh about 1/4 of an ounce but have relatively large wingspans for their size, measuring anywhere from 9 to 11 inches total. The fur can be anything from a black to a gray color and sometimes even a dark brown. They migrate closer to the central United States during the summer and roost in large numbers inside of caves.
The Indiana bat is listed as an endangered species by the American government. There are several major threats to the Indiana bat population. White-nose syndrome has contributed greatly to the desecration of the Indiana bat population. Also, their tendency to roost in large numbers leaves them susceptible to human disturbance. Deforestation is another major issue that has effectively ruined much of the habitat and lowered the population of Indiana bats.
Because of their status as a federally recognized endangered species, Indiana bats must be removed with extreme care. A professional bat removal service will know how to act in accordance with federal law for the safety of these bats. Since they cannot be harmed in any way, the removal company must display a track record of both outstanding skill and a high ethical standard.
