We get a lot of questions about how bats move about. Bats are often compared to a mouse with wings. Which couldn’t be more inaccurate. Bats prefer to fall to fly so they often roost in high places and will crawl on their hands and feet to get in that perfect position.

We came across this amazing video by Reddit user highfivecheesefries the other day and this is honestly one of the best videos of a bat crawling to take off that I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty incredible. And the little feet are adorable.


It’s not often you get to see bats move about like this. Especially without someone screaming hysterically in the background because the bat is in their house.

We’re glad this bat was outside and gently encouraged to leave. It really isn’t safe for bats to be in your house with you though. If you have a bat infestation, call us today to discuss your situation. Even if you just suspect you have a bat infestation, we can walk you through how to confirm for yourself.
