Habitat: Forests, woodlands, and riparian areas.

Habits: A tree dweller, it also uses crevices in rocks and buildings as roosts. They generally roost singly or in small groups. Very cold-tolerant. Probably nomadic; these bats may hibernate on their summer range, they generally are thought to migrate to a more southerly winter range. The sexes may segregate geographically in the spring and summer. Two young are born in June and July. It apparently never associates with other species of bats. Diet consists of insects.
