Little brown bats prefer to roost during the day in trees and buildings. Attics, barns and abandoned buildings often serve as ideal sites for raising their young during the summer months. Northern long-eared bats make their home under loose bark and in tree cavities of boreal forests. Tri-colored bats will also roost in the tree cavities and foliage of shrubby areas and open forests with a nearby water source. All three species usually hibernate in humid caves or abandoned mines.
