Many of Wisconsin'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 Wisconsin's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Wauwatosa Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Bats Make Good Pets?

There is no doubt to say that bats can adapt human lifestyle and can be kept as domestic animals. Even they become cuddly and clingy with time. But experts reveal that they usually don't have a much longer life when raised in captivity as compared to their estimated lifetime of around 30 years in the wild. It is observed that they may hardly survive for 5 to 6 years when kept in a domestic environment, so this is the biggest reason why bats are not considered as best pets. Also; these creatures love to take long flights, and they are nocturnal creatures; you cannot limit their lives in a cage.

Studies show that there are more than 1000 bat species throughout the world out of which 45 are observed to be living within the United States. You will be surprised to know that most of these bat species are protected as per state laws. If you try to capture or harm them, you may have to face a huge penalty. Bats are even not authorized to keep in research facilities, wildlife sanctuaries, and zoo areas. In order to keep bats; one needs to get licensed from Department of Agriculture in the United States.

You might have heard that bats are scary carriers of rabies and many such harmful disease viruses. However, the actual cases of disease transfers are still very rare. But it doesn't make them a suitable choice for domestic pets. Also, these creatures do not have a temperament like other domestic animals such as dogs and pets. Rather, when they become upset, they try to bite; even if they are in pain or are too excited, they may show their aggressive side to the people living around. These bites may cause transfer of rabies viruses via saliva, and nobody would like to suffer from that.

If you make the decision to keep a bat at home, it will also be difficult to complete her routine diet requirements. They prefer to live in the wild and have unique feeding habits. They may consume around 500-1000 insects, mosquitoes or bugs in a single night. These flying insects are the best thing for their diet as it provides them satisfactory level of nutrition and ensures required metabolism rate as well. If you try to keep them as pets, you may need to feed on mealworms, and it will be difficult to manage for homeowners.

Bats are nocturnal creatures, and they usually hibernate in the day hours. You may often find them hanging upside down in their colonies. Note that, they are highly social animals, especially female bats and they prefer to live together for years. If you keep one at home, it will not get favorable conditions to live and may die soon. There is no point of putting a flying creature in the cage even when you cannot fulfill their diet requirements. Hence, it is better to drop the idea of having a pet bat. It is not even allowed as per state laws.
