    Question - I am interested in raising bats. Where do I start?

    I strongly suggest you do something else. I worked with bats as a graduate
    student and it is absolutely dangerous for inexperienced students. They
    carry rabies, so preventative shots is a requirement. They are not or will
    ever be friendly. Their guano carries diseases and that alone should be a
    enough to convince you otherwise. Furthermore, you have to have a Federal
    permit and in most States a second permit to keep them. Unless you have a
    sponsor, it is unlikely that will happen.

    What you could do is build bat friendly housing around your house, and I
    suggest you seek out that information at a library. Bats are great for
    keeping flying insects populations under control.
