Many of Arizona's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Arizona's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Yavapai county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Prescott animal control for wildlife issues.

Prescott Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Bats Migrate?

Like any other animal, bats often settle in places dependent on their food availability: they enjoy places where they can leave during the night and eat to their heart's content, returning at sunrise to rest and start back over the next night. When this supply begins to naturally decline, though, due to either weather or other factors, bats will often be presented with two options: hibernation or migration.

Hibernation is simple: the bats find (or make) their own shelter, before settling down for the cold weather, passing the time in an energy-conservation state that will allow them to survive the time with little or non-existent food readily available to them.

Migration, on the other hand, is a little more complicated, and often comes with its own perils that the bats must endure during the time that they are moving.

There is a small distinction between bats that migrate, and those that hibernate: the differences are often so miniscule that they are hard to figure out. This is further complicated by the fact that this question is not always clear: there are bats that exclusively migrate or hibernate; but, there are often colonies of bats that split up at the beginning of their migrating/hibernating season, with half leaving to fly south for the winter, and the other half nesting down for the cold weather. In general, though, tree roosting bats are often the migratory species, since trees do not provide the kind of shelter that bats need to be able to survive the winter.

Migration often starts earlier than hibernation, usually starting in September, when the temperature in many temperate areas with heavy bat populations beginning to drop significantly. This change in temperature can often bring down the insect population, as well, making bats begin to move towards the south to find better food sources. Most times, bat colonies will be joined in their trip south by migratory birds, as well, since the timing lines up for both.

Migration, though, is not without its pitfalls. First, migration often takes a lot of energy for bats to keep up with: those that migrate will often lose about one-half gram of weight for every one-hundred km that they travel. This also means that they will need to hunt more during their movement, to keep the energy up throughout their flights. Bats must also be accurate with their navigation, using their echolocators well, to keep away from buildings and other obstacles that they might encounter. Their movement south also means that the bats will oftentimes encounter adverse weather, as well as a higher chance of both predators and disease that they are unable to fight off. Pesticides also can be a problem to bats over their migration, as the bats will have ingested pesticides off the insects that they have eaten: many times, these pesticides can be released during the burning of energy that migration requires, causing a few bats to become sick or even die.
