Kuhl’s pipistrelle is a rather small bat, and its fur coloring can vary from medium or yellow-brown shades on its upper side and light grey on its underside. Their ears, membranes, and nose are blackish brown. They also exhibit a white edge at the edge of the wing and tail membrane.
They are very agile and feed on moths, mosquitoes, mayflies, and other insects while in flight. These bats take advantage of human structures for their summer roosts and use cliff crevices and cellars as their roost in the winter. Therefore, colonies and individuals are sometimes threatened by redevelopments and the use of pesticides to eradicate mosquitoes in urban areas.
