These are common in central Virginia, but can be found in the Alexandria area, and rarely near the North Carolina border. Strangely enough, there are none in Northern North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, yet they are everywhere in New Jersey and Delaware. They can be found all across the American South. Some have shown up in California, Japan, and the UK.
Their habitat consists of overgrown fields, forests, forest edges, and rocky hillsides. They can also be found in barns, and other areas where food supply such as rodents are present.
