Bat hibernation

Asked September 30, 2019, 7:26 PM EDT

When do bats hibernate in the Mt Hood Oregon area? I have one that visits inside my house occasionally. It is not bothering me. I have an open living space that is really high and I am not able to catch it. I was thinking of leaving it alone. What do you recommend?

Clackamas County Oregon

Hello I'm not from your region and I'm not sure what the opinion of Department of Wildlife would think. https://www.dfw.state.or.us/agency/directory/wildlife_division.asp

Here is some information from Bat Conservation International

Please call ODFW to see how they want you to handle this .
