This handsome Red Cedar Bat Abode provides a warm place for bats to roost, protected from wind and predators. Neighborhood bats consume hundreds of mosquitoes and other bugs an hour while they feed at night, making them an all-natural, desirable method of pest control.
Made of weather-resistant red cedar, this bat house has an interior nylon mesh that enhances maneuverability. Ventilation slot for air circulation. Houses up to 75 adult bats. Made in the USA.
Mount the house on a garage, barn or pole (south or east facing is usually best). Do not mount on a tree as it enables predators, is usually too shady (cold), and the branches impede the bats' flight.
Place the house a minimum of ten feet off the ground to protect against predators; with 15-20 being even better. You'll also have a better chance of attracting bats if the house is near a water source, and away from bright lights.
