Bats are the only mammals capable of flying. They can be found anywhere in the world except for the Arctic and Antarctica. There are more than a thousand species of bats. They feed on fruits and nectar which make them good pollinators. Some bats also feed on insects and they can consume up to 1,200 mosquitoes or bugs in an hour which makes them useful for insect control.
Bats normally live in trees, caves, and mines. They can easily find their way in the dark using echolocation or the use of echoes to locate obstructions and openings.
Bats can also thrive in urban and suburban areas. Species that form colonies can live in attics and their massive wastes can cause damage to structures and threat to health.
Raccoons are nocturnal mammals found in forested areas and marshes where they can easily search for food, such as fruits, succulent plants, eggs, tiny insects, frogs, and aquatic invertebrates. They build their dens in hollow trees and fallen logs. A female raccoon can give birth to up to 7 cubs and the cubs normally stay with their moms for about two months.
Raccoons can easily adapt to city life. They can eat just about anything and they build their dens in attics, sheds, and barns. Raccoons can be destructive, a nuisance, and a threat to health and safety. They can tip over garbage cans, eat garden plants, possibly carry disease, and destroy structures as they gain entry to attics.
Squirrels are small to medium-sized rodents with four front teeth that grow continuously. They prefer to live in forested areas where there is abundant food, such as nuts, seeds, acorns, berries, eggs, and young birds.
Squirrels have about 200 species which are categorized into three: flying, tree, and ground squirrels. Their food and denning behavior may vary according to their species.
Squirrels are one of the most common wildlife visible in urban and suburban areas. They can cause several problems when they search for food and build their dens in yards and homes.
