can bats fly in the rain?
Yes , but not unless they need too. Bats burn more energy flying in the rain. when wet, bats are using twice as much energy to fly and may explain why bats seek shelter during heavy rainfall.
Wildlife control operators and bat removal professionals report an increase in bat in house and bat in attic calls during and after prolonged periods of heavy rainfall.
Cooler air makes people want to open up doors and windows. This is how you give a simple and easy bat entry point.
