Bats in California

On November 1, Stanford researcher Dr. Jon Flanders gave District staff an informative presentation on bats.  Dr. Flanders is currently conducting bat research at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, in Portola Valley.  He shared his knowledge of bats in general, as well as the current findings of bat tracking in Jasper Ridge.

Twenty-five species of bats occur in California.  Most cause no problems, are nocturnal, and rarely seen. However, some species will utilize houses and other man-made structures for roosts or nests. Removal of bat colonies should be done by a wildlife professional who is experienced with safe handling of bats and is familiar with regulations and practices that prevent bats from entrapment and recognize their seasonal life cycle.

Learn more about coexisting with our local bats on the District website.
Mosquito surveillance and control updates are now available on the District website.
