Bats can be found in almost every part of the world, except in the extreme climates, where it is either very, very hot, or very, very cold. They live on all continents, except Antarctica; more species live where the weather is nice and warm, spots near the equator knows as "tropics" and "rain forests". In the United States of America, the largest number of "bat species" live in the southwestern part of the country. Texas has 32 different kinds of bats while Maine has only 8 kinds of bats; Arizona has 28 bat species, Michigan has only 10 species of bats.

Bats are a primary predator of night flying insects and play a very important role in keeping the balance of nature in order. Little brown bats can catch 1,200 mosquito sized insects in an hour and big brown bats are a important predators of some of America's most costly crop pests; Cucumber beetles, June beetles, bark beetles, stink bugs, leafhoppers, cutworm moths, corn earworm moths, armyworm moths, termites, assassin bugs, ants, roaches, crickets, and grasshoppers are just some of the many pests known to be consumed by America's bats.

Unfortunately bat populations are in alarming decline due to decades of fear by humans and persecution.

Bats seek shelter, forced into man made structures due to loss of their habitat because of growing human population.
