Designed by the Organization for Bat Conservation, this Single-Chamber Cedar and Plywood Bat House 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 cedar with a ¾" exterior plywood back. The grooved interior makes it easy for bats to cling while roosting, and the extended base helps provide easier landing and entrance. Ventilation slot for air circulation. Houses up to 100 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.
