Eastern Red Bat


  • The eastern red bat is a small bat that usually nests in trees
  • Males have distinctly red fur while females are more chestnut colored
  • These bats are usually solitary animals but will migrate in large flocks

The eastern red bat is a very common species of bat found in Alabama. They do not form colonies but instead live most of their lives in solitude. Generally speaking, this bat is considered beneficial because it feeds on many flying insects and generally nests in trees. However these bats can make their homes in attics especially when they hibernate over winter. If these bats make their way into your home please call a pest control professional to learn the best options for removing them.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
