What Are Bats Doing in Winter?
Bats are not active in the winter, they are not flying around and they are not feeding on insects because they cannot survive the harsh Canadian winter outdoors. When the weather turns cold this is just the start of potential bat infestations on your property . Bats look for access into a nice cozy spot, like your attic, to hibernate until things warm up again. In the wild, bats will live in many different places and often hibernate in mountain caves or abandoned mines, but in urban areas like Whitby, they favour our nice, secure, warm homes. This makes bat control in towns and cities essential.
