Tennessee is home to 15 different species, with 6 of them commonly taking up residence in attics or buildings. Bats possess the unique ability among mammals to truly fly. The color of these animals might vary depending on the species, from brown to gray. Bats have wings that are attached to their legs by wing membranes that reach down along their side and are supported by the arm's bones. The small size and poor climbing ability of a bat's feet make them ideal for clinging to objects that allow them to hang upside down. Because they are insectivorous, bats can consume their whole body weight in insects each night.
Problems and Damage
Bats can cause damage to your home’s construction, siding, and indoor living space as they attempt to enter. They may create openings during their attempts to gain access. Additionally, bats are known to have associations with certain diseases and insects that can pose significant health risks to you, your family, and even your pets.
