About this Batty Item

Three Chamber Bat House - BCI Certified

This three chamber bat house is built to meet and exceed all 10 of Bat Conservation International (BCI) certification requirements.  We've taken great effort to create a completely finished, durable, practical and easy to install bat house.

Featuring an Integrated Mounting Cleat for easy hanging!

Watch as we build a three chamber bat house:

 


We use high quality building materials:  exterior grade ACX plywood, weatherproof fasteners, a 50 year polyurethane adhesive caulk, and two coats of premium, self priming exterior water-based paint.  All interior surfaces have cut grooves giving bats a permanent gripping texture that will never come loose and entangle or injure the bats.  Internal baffles are spaced 3/4" apart; the research based, bat preferred spacing.  The roof is painted with a complimentary 10X deck paint to improve appearance, durability and solar heating.

Includes a complete manual that covers where and how to install your bat house for the best chance of success.  Select from 3 different colors, based upon the average (July) high temperatures for your area.  If your average July temperature is 84 degrees or less, please go back to "Finished Bat Houses" and select a cold weather bat house.

Made in the USA

Specifications:
     Dimension:  H 31" x W 20" x D 5.25"
     Weight:   24 lbs.
     Bat Capacity*:  about 250
     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space:   750

 

*We attempt to be honest with our estimates allowing approx 3 cubic inches for each bat. This includes an allowance for unused space since the bats will not pack the house top to bottom. Some species will crowd in very tightly, others will not.  Here's the math: "Cubic Inches of Roosting space / 3 Cubic Inches = estimate of capacity".

FAQ - Explaining the Bat House Colors (06:54)
We have new bat house colors for 2013. After research and measuring temperatures we have adjusted our bat house colors this year. We now offer 3 shades of brown, Dark, Medium and Light. These colors help keep the temperature inside the bat house to the correct range of 85 to 100 degrees depending on your area. If you are in a cold area you want the Dark Brown. Most areas will be good with the Medium Brown and the hottest areas need the light brown colors.We have placed all three shades of our two chamber bat houses in direct sunlight on a bright sunny day in May here in Georgia. We use a digital infrared thermometer to measure the temperatures inside and on the skin of the bat houses to see the effect of the radiant energy on each bat house. Results were good and support our color choices.Enjoy this brief video and let us know if you have any questions!Visit us at http://www.HabitatForBats.orgGet Your Bat House at our Bat eStore http://eStore.HabitatForBats.orgOur YouTube Channel http://www.YouTube.com/h4bats---Royalty Free Music from SmartSound http://www.smartsound.com/

  1. Impressed with Fit and Finish of the 3 Chamber Bat House 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jul 2017

    After researching many bat houses, I settled on this one because of several positive reviews. But mostly what convinced me to buy here was the honesty that was conveyed from the proprietier. When the question was asked in the Q&A section as to how many bats the houses could support, I felt that the answer provided was very realistic and not driven off of a best case scenario. Very pleased with the quality and I expect it will last a long time. Now if I can just get some tenants.


  2. Great bat house 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2016

    The bat house is really high quality and it even looks good too. When my tried to get the post/house into the ground, the whole thing crashed. Nothing was broken!


  3. High quality, beautiful. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Apr 2016

    This bat house is put together very well and looks great. I've been shopping for these for a while, and even built one of my own once, and this one is superior. I can't wait to see new occupants move in!


  4. Pleased With The Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Apr 2015

    I've been wanting a bat house and have been shopping around for awhile. Most were crude and not much above an arts and crafts construction experiment with dubious expectations of its functionality. I was watching YouTube and saw your product and I was impressed with the quality of construction but more so of the institutional backing and their endorsement. My bat house is mounted now on the southeast gable end of my house and I'm anxiously awaiting my guests arrival.
