Indiana Bat Maternity Colony Monitoring – Ft. Knox, KY

Since 2005, Copperhead Consulting has discovered and monitored Indiana bat colonies on Ft. Knox in north-central Kentucky. Bats are caught in mist-nets either on the landscape or at known roost trees during the maternity season, radio-tagged, and tracked to diurnal roosts and during nocturnal foraging activities. Ongoing work strives to document how bats are using the installation and how bats move between the three distinct colonies currently identified on the property.
