in natural cedar

All species of American Bats live on thousands of insects they eat after dusk. Since they love mosquitoes, they're good to have around your home and it's fun to watch their acrobatics at dusk on summer evenings.

Groups of bats, sometimes 50 or more, roost together during daytime hours. they like to crawl into snug crevices about 3/4" to 1" wide. (We've even had them roost behind the vinyl shutters at our store in Point Pleasant, PA.)

Our Bat House Condo was designed for Bat appeal. 18" high x 10 3/4" wide x 3 1/2" front to back. Center divider creates two 1" compartments, lined on one side with 1/4" square plastic mesh for bats to cling onto. Made in our Tillamook, Oregon warehouse from untreated natural Western Red Cedar.

Site Bat Condos high on walls or on 15 ft tall 4 x 4 posts with an open flyaway from trees. Bats like it warm inside, so full sun exposure facing south is preferred.

Bat Facts and Conservation
The most widely distributed bat species in the United States are the Little Brown Bat and the Large Brown Bat. Little Brown Bats especially love to roost in man-made structures and Bat Boxes with narrow crevices they can fit into snugly. Little Brown Bats will even roost behind shutters or wood siding, whenever they can find a crevice to sneak in.

All bats like a warm roosting place when they are active in summer and having their young.

So position your Bat Box high up around 15-20 ft. in an open facing spot, unobstructed by tree branches that catches morning sun.

White Nose Syndrome
White Nose Syndrome is a fungal disease that has decimated bat colonies especially in the North Eastern United States. But the good news is that some colonies have stabilized at about one third of their original size, because some bats are naturally resistant to the fungus.

These bats need our help to rebuild their numbers – and warm, snug bat houses help them reproduce in summer.
