Management Solutions

 

All FBN management projects are research oriented & conservation based.  Our long term research with urban bat  populations began in 1993, while  Laura was working toward her Masters degree at UCF.  Her Masters research involved comparing microclimate in a variety of bat houses and occupied roosts to determine the optimal bat house design.   All occupied roosts in her study were buildings occupied by ’nuisance’ colonies. It was here that  we observed first hand the vulnerability of these populations —  and began to realize urban bat populations are silently declining.  See What Causes Mortality & Why You Should Care

 

Monitoring and observation data are collected before, during and after our population management projects.   Documentation related to urban colonies includes species, structure type, weather,  population status, activity and behavior, availability and success of roost mitigation, use of alternate roosts, etc.   Observations on survival, reproductive success, and roost selection of urban colonies that are evicted reveal the importance of  public education  that describes updated methodology & timing.  

 

So in addition to BCI’s site, we hope to make Fly By Nights site a another resource with links to updated info on urban bats in addition to pointing out information sources we feel need revision or updating.  This is a work in progress & you input is appreciated.
