    What is an ideal habitat for bats in Northeast Ohio?

    Naturalist's Response

    There are roughly around a dozen species of bats that can be found in Ohio, and different species have different habitat requirements. Bats that live gregariously prefer caves, attics, barns or artificial structures (i.e. bat boxes) that can be provided. Solitary bats may roost in branches, under bark, etc. If you would like information on a specific species, let us know!
