Evening Bat Appears Again!

Written by PA Game Commission. Posted in News

05/31/2016 - On May 24th an environmental consulting company captured an evening bat in our state, and a pregnant female to boot!  This capture makes the fourth record of evening bats in three years.  Capture locations have varied from the northcentral to southwest portions of the state.  This is a species that has never been documented in Pennsylvania historically.  The summer bat trapping season recently began May 15th and extends through August 15th in Pennsylvania, so many more exciting captures are possible in the warm summer nights ahead!
