About this Batty Item

Two Chamber Bat House - BCI Certified

This two 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 two 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.  Please note that if the average July temperature in your area is 84 degrees or less, a two-chamber bat house may not be able to reach or maintain a high enough temperature for the bats.  A 3- or 4-chamber cold weather is recommended.

Made in the USA

Specifications:
     Dimension:  H 31" x W 20" x D 4"
     Weight:   20 lbs.
     Bat Capacity*:  about 175
     Cubic Inches of Roosting Space:   500

 

*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. The bat house looks just like it is advertised which was great. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Dec 2015

    The bat house was a Christmas present for my 7 year old grand daughter who is so interested in bats. I hope it attracts bats as everyone in the family is wanting to save the bats.


  2. We'd move in! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2015

    My husband just opened his Halloween gift of this bathouse and is thrilled, even though i'm the bat lover in the family. As a carpenter he is impressed by the quality materials and construction. The bat trim adds the right decorative touch (for people anyway).

    Now if only he will install it before Christmas!


  3. Bat House Review 5 Star Review

    The bat house and plush bat were gifts.


  4. Happy with the Two Chamber Bat House 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2015

    After reading reviews and looking online about all the different bat houses I decided on this one based on the helpful information and online videos provided by HFB. The bat house arrived early and was packed well. This bat house is well made and fit and finish is good. The only issue I had was one corner shingle was torn. I trimmed it and applied some black silicone. In no way am I a bat expert. I guess you could call this a novelty purchase but I am also interested in saving bats since they are so important to our ecosystem. I have seen bats in my area flying around the 2 security lights on our property. I have ponds within a 1/4 mile from my house. I have a abundance of bugs. My only issue is my property is 200 feet wide bordered by trees and I'm having to guess on my best location based on sunlight exposure. One important thing to remember location location location. Having done that I installed my bat house on a S&K 15' telescoping pole. Now we wait to see if I have provided a suitable home for the bats.


  5. Quality product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2015

    I purchased the 2Chamber BatHouse and received it very quickly. It is an excellent quality made product and a major upgrade from the previous bathouse I had. Installation was very easy. Waiting to see if my bats return and how well they will like the new house.
