Like all mammals, bats are livebearers and nurse their young (called pups). Depending on the species, females give birth to 1 or 2 pups each year, usually in May or June. The Eastern red bat gives birth to 3 to 5 pups. Bats do not build nests. Some species form groups of females (maternity colonies). A typical summer roost could be beneath loose tree bark, in hollow trees, in abandoned buildings or attics, or in caves. At birth a young bat clings to its mother. When the mother feeds each evening, the young bat is left at the roost site. After about three weeks, the young can fly and will start feeding on insects.
Bat exclusion must take place before the young are born in May and June to prevent the young from starving after the mother has been excluded from the site. If there are young bats inside the building, we must wait until they are weaned (late July-August) before excluding the bats and sealing all entrances.
