In Maine, there are two types of bats that commonly roost inside of homes, the little brown bat and the big brown bat.
There are eight species of bats that occur in Maine. Five species stay in Maine year round by hibernating during the cold months. The locations they stay in, called a hibernacula, are usually abandoned mines or caves. Occasionally, bats are found inside buildings.
The 5 species are: Big Brown Bat (Eptesicus fuscus), Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus), Little Brown Bat (Myotis septentrionalis), Eastern Small Footed Bat (Myotis leibii), Tri-colored bat (Pipistrellus subflavus)
Three of the eight species are called ‘tree bats’ and will migrate south for the winter. They are: Hoary bat (Lasiurus cinereus), Silver-haired bat (Lasionycteris noctivagans), Eastern Red bat (Lasiurus borealis).
Little Brown Bat:
The little brown bat has a body length of about 2-4 inches and a wingspan of approximately 8-11 inches. Their back is dark brown to light golden brown and their belly has lighter gray fur. Their wing membranes are dark brown. They have rounded ears, large hind feet, and a small nose.
Big Brown Bat
As the big brown bats name suggests they are a bit larger than the little brown bat. Their body is about 4-5 inches in length and they have a wingspan of 12-16 inches. Their fur is longer and silky chocolate brown. Their wing membranes are black. They have rounded ears, and their nose is larger and broader compared to the little brown bat.
