Going batty in Lismore

LISMORE microbats are currently in a feeding frenzy as they fatten up on insects to see them through the coming winter. 

If they have taken up residence in your roof or walls, autumn is a good time for a gentle bat eviction before they bunk down for their winter hibernation.

If you find a microbat that you think may need assistance – please do not handle it. Call your local wildlife rescue service for advice. Visit for a list of local wildlife rescue groups.

A special roosting box can offer your microbat buddies a hangout for daytime naps or even a safe place to sleep through winter.  Find out how to build your own microbat roost box at
