nest or roost. Apart from being unsightly, the droppings contain
parasites. And are very dangerous for us to breathe in.

Some interesting Biology about the Bats in San Diego: Bats are arguably
the most beneficial mammals in the world, bats come in several varieties.
The three most common bats in California are the Big Brown Bat,
the Little Brown Bat, and THE Mexican Free Tail Bat. The Little
Brown Bat is the most common critter we find colonized in homes
around the area. Colonized animals such as bates live in large
The little brown bat found all throughout San Diego is a small mammal
with a body length of 3" to 3 1/2" and weighs approximately 1/8
to 1/2 an ounce. The wingspan of little brown bats range from 6
to 8" and they can live 20 to 30 years.
of a bat:
The little brown bat eats insects like gnats, flies, moths, wasps
and beetles. The little brown bat hunts at dusk and at night.
It uses echolocation to locate prey. It sends out a high-frequency
sound. When the sound hits an object, it bounces back to the bat.
The bat then can identify what the sound hit and where it is. When
it finds its prey, it grabs it with its wings and tucks it into
a pouch formed when it brings its wing and tail membranes together.
It then grabs the insect with its sharp teeth and eats it!
The goal is to remove the bats before a colony can take hold. We
have found houses to contain as little as just one bat, and in very
severe cases up to 600 bats. Sometimes they live in chimneys, others
in the attic vents. There have been cases in San Diego where the
bat colony was over 800 critters. Since bats are very environmentally
beneficial, state and local law protects the bat species from the
use of any kind of killing removal tactics. This is why Speedy Animal
Control handles these kinds of animals in a very delicate manner.

Bats are the only mammals that engage in active flight. As their
name suggests, they are glossy brown above with a light buff color
below. The Little Brown Bat is found from Labrador west to central
Alaska and south to the Appalachians in Florida and Arkansas, located
in most states except Florida, California and southern California
and Found abundantly throughout New Hampshire. The brown bat which
calls San Diego it's home, is most commonly found bat in residential
attic areas. Little brown bats are insectivorous, eating a variety
of insects including some agricultural pests. They can eat 50% of
their own body weight each San Diego evening.
Bat Gestation & Reproduction:
During gestation and lactation, they will eat even more. These nocturnal
mammals use echolocation to navigate and locate prey. Sexual maturity
is reached in 6 to 9 months for females and a year for males. A
bat's breeding period is from September to October but the female
stores the sperm for fertilization in the spring. The young are
born from mid-June to early July. In San Diego, the little brown
bats generally have one offspring per year and occasionally two.
Mating season of little
Mating season is in the fall, but fertilization doesn't happen until
spring. In the spring little brown bats form huge nursery colonies.
A nursery colony may have thousands of bats in it. The female little
brown bat gives birth to only one baby. During birth, the female
hangs right-side up! The baby bat attaches itself to a teat.
It nurses for about two weeks. It will fly when it is three weeks
old. The young become self-supporting within one month. Little brown
bats feed primarily over wetlands and other still water where insects
are abundant. They use our California Rivers, streams, and trails
as travel corridors to navigate across the landscape. Bats will
occasionally swoop down close to mammals to indulge on the insects
that often swarm around them. Little brown bats seek cavities for
shelter, roosting and brooding.
In summer, females brood their young in dark, warm sites such as
attics, caves, barns, hollow tree cavities and other protected areas.
Little brown bat roost sites are highly variable and not well known.
