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. Good design and well built 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2015

    I ordered 2 of the 2-chamber bat houses for our ISO 14001 project at work. Our area has one of the largest small brown bat colonies in the country, but they are dying from the white nose syndrom. We are hoping that these bat houses might be of some benefit to the bats that survive.

    Everything was exactly as described with the bat houses. The company even contacted us about the color of the houses because of our northern location. The packaging was very good and if we decide to put more houses up they will come from this company.


  2. Our new bat homes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Apr 2014

    We were impressed with their website - very informative and with our order included all necessary advice. Our products came quickly, were very well packed and of high quality construction. Hoping our bats are as happy as we were and move in soon.


  3. Excellent product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2014

    Very well designed and constructed. Excellent quality and reasonably priced.


  4. Excellent product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2013

    I am very happy with my purchase. Solid construction and finish. The French cleat made it very easy to mount while on a ladder. I highly recommend this bat house. Now lets see if any bats show up. Its only been a few days but I am hopeful. The online videos will help anyone who has difficulty with the instructions.


  5. First time buyer, product is as advertised 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2013

    Looks great! Installation instructions leave a little to be desired, but I think I got those from batcon.org (for example, instructions say to attach 2x4 to back of bat house with 1 5/8" screws. So screw isn't even long enough to penetrate all the way through 2x4!).

    Response: Thanks for the comment. We are in the process of updating our manual and are looking for things like this.
