Bat calendar

There are different activities that bats observe every month. This is a calendar that is organized by month and the actions that are seen on bats each month.



January
This is a rest month. It is usually cold and most of the bats hibernate. When it’s warmer, they may emerge. This is also a month for the males to be in breeding.

February
In many areas, this month is very much like January. The bats are still in hibernation and still breeding. Bats use the fat reserve and stored energy. Towards the month end, some activity can be observed.

March
In the US, the month is strange. Sometimes it’s warm and at times colder. When cold, the bats will continue hibernating but when warm, food search starts immediately.

April
The bats come of torpor officially. The weather is nice and days liner. There are flying insects offering a good food base for the bats.

May
This is where males and females go separate ways. Males form a bachelor colony and the females go to a maternity colony. This is a feeding month.

June
In this month, the males and females have found their own areas to roost and settled. Females are eating a lot so as to build fat reserves for the birthing season. They nurse the young and they need lots of energy.

July
Almost all the females will have babies by now. They are all naked and they depend on the temperature of the mothers till they grow fur. The bats are nursed for 4 weeks and then they start flying around.

August
This is the year of transition and baby bats start flying as yet others are being born. Different bats have babies at different stages all summer.

September
This is the month that signals the coming of winter in most parts of the USA. Males and females start regrouping and feeding in excess so as to build the fat reserves.

October
The bats are still in the eating mode for the fat reserves. They eat everything that they can so as to have enough fat to get through winter

November
The bats are only present on the days when it is warmer and then settle in the dens in the torpor state. They have enough fat.

December
This is a cold month and the bats are still inactive. When December is warmer, they will emerge. Most of the bats spotted will be males due to restlessness. There are some males that start the breeding this month and the process starts again! Go back to the How to get rid of bats home page.
